This lake trip originally wasn't going to take place. We were going to bring Beckett to her first Auburn game (not in the game, but to our best friend's house and other best friend's tailgate!). Austin's parents were going to visit Clemson for UGA's opener. However, the closer we got to the Auburn weekend the more nervous we got about the heat, Beckett's nap schedule, parking and just overall taking a 6-month-old to tailgate. We know people have done it before, and we admire it, but the heat was our #1 concern. We ultimately backed out, and Austin's parents mentioned Labor Day at the lake and that was that - we would drive over. Then, Austin's younger brother who lives in NY unexpectedly got off work Friday at 1 p.m. and was given the weekend! (he often works weekends). He called his dad and they worked it out to where he was on a flight out of LaGuardia at 3:15 p.m.!
All of that being said GREAT weekend with the family, Beckett did SO good adjusting to central time and taking her bottles and solids from her Mimi and Uncle Tyler. She even got in the lake! (for a minute!) And checked out the boat with Uncle Tyler and Poppa Paul (no, she did not boat on this trip!). It was so fun to have her there and to enjoy such a relaxing weekend. We got in Friday around 5, and got home Monday around 1 - a great visit! And of course, Michelle sent us home with so much food I didn't even have to go to the grocery store this week. LOL Here are some favorite shots from the weekend.
|We've arrived! Beckett likes it there - her second lake visit!|
|We brought her traveling jumperoo thanks to Ruje and Mark! She loved it and showed off some fancy footwork. How fitting that we used this for the first time at the lake when they are such lake people - great gift!|
|Taking it all in face. By the end of the weekend she was all over the place in this thing - hilarious!|
|Becks getting a lake dip. No crying at all. It's official, it's not water she dislikes, it's cold water. In fairness, who doesn't?|
|Our little Auburn girl with her daddy before kickoff. Special thanks to Megan for this adorable top!|
|Testing out her float at the lake with her dad and Uncle Tyler - you can't see her face but I swear it's content! She was kicking her legs and having a blast after a minute!|
|"Standing" in the boat with her Poppa Paul! This was part of a series of pictures of the two of them - all of them hilarious haha|
|Big grins from Beckett and her Uncle Tyler|
|You know the pups were there for the fun! They didn't get in the water on this trip but did enjoy running around outside and went down to the dock several times!|
|Me and my happy Baby Girl hanging on the dock|

Wednesday was much brighter. We had a bit of positive movement with the mailbox project that will not die, and I felt motivated! Got two recipes cooked, got returns ready for our mall trip, did dishes, trash - solid morning! Then Beckett and I headed to Perimeter to meet my old co-worker buddies Miranda and Majd.
|856 calories burned today - woo!|
