Memorial Day Weekend

I am still recovering from the weekend! I am just worn out for some reason!  We had a wonderful weekend at the lake...I loved every second of it.   Friday afternoon, Emily and the boys got in town and we all went over to play at Mimi's.  Even though we live right next door, we were not prepared for playing in the water...poor Paige

Saturday, we headed to the lake! I was so excited that Heather, her sister Joy, and Audrey were coming down to play with us.  We had a great day playing in the water.  We played on the slide, road the boat and just relaxed in the water.  It was great!  We also ate at my favorite place on the lake, Skippers.  Saturday was Paige's first time EVER skipping a nap.  She fought it and fought it, she didn't want to miss out on anything.  She made it until the ride home (all 10 minutes of the ride) and fell asleep.  She woke up when we got home for a quick nap and in the bed at normal bedtime at 8:30. 

Sunday was pretty much the same, Heather Joy and Audrey had such a fun time Saturday, they decided to come back down for another day at the lake.  Ray came with them this time.  Wes cooked a Boston Butt and we had BBQ sandwiches for lunch.  And guess what we did...Paige and tubed together.  It was her first time!

It was another no nap day for Paige and lots of fun in the water.  You could tell the no nap thing was catching up with her, but she did not want to miss out of any of the fun.   She said she wanted to nap, so I laid her in the bed in one of the rooms at the house, she usually talks her self to sleep, so I figured we would see if it worked.  I cracked the door and sat in the next room.  She talked for a few minutes and then quiet.... I was about to check on her when someone came in needing to change their baby's diaper and we couldn't find the wipes.  He peeked in to where Paige was and he said, "I found the wipes...Paige has them and has taken every single one out the package and laid on the bed".  Paige was having a blast...very quietly! So that was the end to nap time for us!  We stayed out until bed time again and went home to clean up and sleep.

Monday, we did the same thing again!  We loaded up and went to the lake.  Paige loved playing with her cousin Matthew and when I asked her if she was ready to go see him, she started dancing! 
 But then she was distracted by Mickey Mouse...
 We went on a nice boat ride..

 And then Paige found out how fun a tub with water in it can be...she had a blast splashing..

 Then her and Matthew decided they needed to clean everything..

BB came to visit and eat lunch with us too!  We played a little while longer, showed BB how she likes to slide into the water and then cleaned up all the toys to head home for nap time!  I think she was ready for her nap today!
When she woke up, her Daddy was getting home from work and he brought Paige a surprise home....a little pool with a slide on it.  She was one happy girl!

We had a great weekend at the lake and it made me even more excited about the summer!!
