Mother's Day Weekend Lake Trip

With us being self employed and all we decided that we needed to take a much needed vacation to Lake Amistad with some friends for 4 days. It wasn't the Mother's Day that I was hoping for and I tried getting out of it for weeks prior to leaving, but I really had the time of my life. There were a total of 8 adults and 8 kids (ages 4 mths to 17 yrs) staying in a single wide 3 bedroom trailer. We also got to hang out on a house boat that had a waterslide going form the second story down to the lake. It was a blast! We also had some jet skies and 2 boats. The whole time we were there Tyler was running a 103* fever because of an ear infection we didn't know about but as long as he was on motrin he was great. The men cooked for the ladies the whole time and I met some wonderful people and I can't wait to do it again!

On the way home we stopped at our friends parents house for Mother's Day and had a crab boil and boy was it yummy! I wish I would have got some pics of the kids eating crab, they loved it!
Hope every one had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!

This is where we loaded the boats everyday

Daddy and Tyler (he hated the life vest).

Everytime we put him in it this is what he did.

I love this pic of Tyler.

Beautiful Pecos River

Who knew Texas had such pretty water!?!?

Gotta love the view!
