Our Weekend

We had a fun weekend in Benton with Josh's family. My doctor had told me at my last appointment that she didn't want me to travel after July, so we decided we needed to make one last trip to see Josh's parents since we will not be back down until late fall.

We went to Josh's parents house on Friday night and spent the night, then got up and headed to the lake around 9 Saturday morning. Their boat is in the same town that Josh's grandpa lives in so we had breakfast with him at a little cafe in town. All 3 guys together. After breakfast, we headed to their boat slip and got on the boat. Brody didn't waste anytime taking over the boat! ;) He loved standing at the front of the boat so he could see. I got out my life jacket so that I could swim and realized it was a little more snug than it was last summer. Ha! There was no way it was zipping at almost 31 weeks pregnant!
We brought Brody's little blow-up car for him to "drive" around the lake. He only rode in it a few minutes. He preferred just swimming around instead.
Brody tubed with his daddy! Josh couldn't get Brody to sit-up. He just kept laying back every time the boat would start going! Josh tubed a lot by himself. I missed getting to tube, but enjoyed watching the boys.Every time Brody finished swimming or tubing, he would climb back on the boat out of breath and say, "Diet Coke! Diet Coke!" Ha ha! He is obviously his mother's child. I think he was about to sneak a drink of Diet Coke in this picture. The 3 of us swimming. Brody was worn out by that afternoon so he took a 1.5-2 hour nap on the boat.
He woke-up ready to play again! (He didn't tube alone...he was just hanging out!) We were all so exhausted by the time we got home that night. I was feeling really pregnant and tired by the end of the day, but we all had such a great time!

We spent a little time Sunday morning by Josh's parents pool before we had to head back home. The boys swam and I just watched. Brody called the raft a "boat". He liked getting on it and then rolling off into the water. He has no fear!
The ex-lifeguard/swimming lessons teacher in me came out while they were in the pool and I made Brody swim across the pool several times. :) He did really well. He actually started swimming lessons today so I will share more about that this week.
Hope you all had a great weekend as well!

You were rocking the life jacket...you may not have been able to zip it...but it was still cute. Brody is such a sweet little man - he just goes with the flow - doesn't he! Cool about the life jacket and out like a light on the boat... what a blessing!
