We had our annual family/friends trip to the Lake of the Ozarks this weekend. We went down Thursday and came back late Saturday night. It was HOT, but overall it was a nice trip. Jack loved seeing all the boats, pointing out each and every one that went by the pool, which looks out over part of the lake with some pretty heavy traffic. He was a happy guy!
We also got to go on a boat ride. It was not Jack's first, but he surely does not remember his first ride a year ago. He got into the lake a few times with Paw Paw but got pretty sleepy towards the end of our time on the lake. We had a special boat ride home to take the 4 youngest home for naps (including Jack) and every one of them fell asleep on the 10 minute ride back.
Jack also loved feeding the ducks, geese and birds from our balcony and on the sidewalk outside our condo.
On Saturday we checked out a place called Miner Mike's - it had lots of tunnels to climb in, some rides, a big arcade and, Jack's favorite, BALL PITS! He had a good time, and it was a nice way to avoid the 95 degree temperatures.
Guess which car Paw Paw and Jack are in. Haha!
They had a choo choo ride that Jack had to go on of course, but it turns out it was a pretty fast little roller coaster-type ride and he was terrified (notice his face in this picture). Luckily they were the only two on the ride so we had the guy stop after a couple times around.
Jack also did some fishing with his Daddy and Paw Paw. He and Paw Paw caught three fishies. Fun stuff!
It was also a nice trip for Mommy because I got to see my three oldest friends, who currently live in San Francisco, Chicago and Akin, SC. Needless to say, we don't get together too often.
