What a Great Weekend!

Keith and I had family visiting us at the Lake of the Ozarks and their visit is a family tradition. We have watched all the kids grow up through the years and it has been a blast.

Each year, the kids are constantly on the jet ski, in the water and asking Keith for boat rides. Aside from being little lake fish, the kids enjoy my breakfast pizza which I make for them every time without fail.

Over the years, we have made many traditions as well as memories that always make me chuckle. This year there were some mischievous activities going on throughout the weekend. There was the usual bugging of the kids and parents, but the biggest prank pulled was on the last day the family was here. We had all just woken up when we found that the girls' swimsuits were all frozen in a ball in the freezer. Knowing that the swimsuits couldn't have done that by themselves, we started lining up the culprits. Keith seemed the most capable of pulling such a prank. Whenever we asked him if he did it, he smiled and simply said "I didn't do it." So bravo, whoever made the first move. We will see how someone feels when the favor is returned.

Wrapping it all up, it was a great weekend with many memories made. There is that saying, "you can't pick family." Though this may be true, I sure am glad with the family we got stuck with. Family are the people that will be there through the thick and thin, making priceless moments along the way that will always leave a smile on your face. Here's to a good weekend, we can't wait for another family visit next year!
