Finally Got Away

Last weekend we finally got to get out of here, and we went to Canyon Lake by New Braunfels, TX with our friends Keith and Lacey.  It was so nice to get away for a few days and just relax and hang out with great friends.  We stayed at a lake house which was pretty close to the lake and river.  That part was interesting.  We didn't have hot water for the whole weekend which just made the trip funny to me.  There is always something that happens when you go away.  Other than that everything was pretty good.
We had our own lawn ornaments 
The deer were extremely friendly
 We went to Greune two nights and ate at the Gristmill.  The Gristmill is the second largest restaurant in Texas and seats 3500 people.  I couldn't believe how big it was.  It was really good also and Greune was just a neat place to visit.

 We rented a boat and went to the lake one day, and it was beautiful.  The water was so warm and you could see your feet, the water was that clear.  It was definitely not Ute Lake.  
We floated the river another day and that was a blast.  We just got to hang out and float on a tube with tons of other people for 6 hours.  I wish we would have taken pictures, but we didn't so this is from the internet and it is exactly what it looked like.
I can't believe we didn't take any pictures with Keith and Lacey.  I always get home and realize all the pictures I should of taken after it's too late.

Then we came home on Sunday to my poor baby who had been cutting two molars on top since Wednesday.  I hated having to leave her with Nonni and Grumps for them to have to put up with, but I think she had fun and they did too.  Right now her favorite toy is her train that Grandma Kay gave her for her birthday.  She loves that thing!  She pushes it all over the house and sits on it.  And no she is not walking yet, but I think she is getting closer hopefully.
 Pappy surprised us today by stopping by for a visit.  Jaycee was being a cuddle bug.  It was so sweet.
