Goodbye White Lake...Until We Meet Again!

Hanging out with Uncle Devon and Aunt Whitney

White Lake Vacation

The dock was right outside the front door of the house we stayed at!
Colton loved the water, it was nice and warm.

The lake was the best vacation ever! It was so relaxing and flying was a piece of cake. We hope we get to go back next year.

Shira Wakeboarding

The bottom two pics are of me wakeboarding with my sister-in-law Whitney.

Devin Wakeboarding

Devin got plenty of wakeboarding time in at the lake. Colton watched from the boat and was so proud of his daddy.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Colton's first beach day and dip in the ocean!

My sister-in-law Whitney's family lives in North Carolina and her grandparents have two houses on White Lake. My family got to stay in one of the houses for a week and we had a blast. One of the days we drove a little over an hour to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. It was Colton's first day at the beach and dip in the ocean. The great thing about the Atlantic ocean was how warm the water is. Perfect for the baby!

Tandem Wakeboarding!

Devin and I tried tandem wakeboarding for the first time. We've tandem surfed a few times so we thought we'd give this a try. We got up on our second attempt and it was alot of fun. It worked out nicely since Devin rides goofy and I ride regular so we could stand comfortably on the same board. My job was to basically just wrap around Devin as tight as I could while he pulled us up out of the water. Then I just climbed down and rode on the wakeboard with him.

Orange County Fair!

We went to the Orange County Fair and had a ton of fun. I ate the best snow cone ever and had a corn dog and carmeled apple...delicious! Devin had a gigantic turkey leg. Colton got to take his first ferris wheel ride. Devin did that game where you hit the hammer as hard as you can and won me a stuffed animal. (We won't mention how big it was to protect his pride.)

All Smiles!

I love Colton so much. He has been smiling so much lately and it's the most adorable thing in the world. I love being a mommy. He makes me so happy.

More Hawaii Friends In Town!

We were so fortunate to have met up with Anna, Zane, and baby Delmer, our friends from Hawaii! It's been so great to see so many friends coming into town lately! We got to meet Delmer for the first time and he is absolutely adorable! It's so funny how Colton is totally pointing to Delmer in the top picture! I miss Hawaii and all our friends there...I want to move back. Boo hoo.

Colton's First Kiss!

Katie & Brent and their baby Eliza (our friends from Hawaii) came to town and we met up with them for dinner. Colton had his first kiss from Eliza, she couldn't keep her hands off him! It was love at first sight. It was so good to see them!

Colton's First Photoshoot

Thank you Amy for once again providing us with pictures that we will cherish forever! Colton turned one MONTH old two days ago on August 2nd! I took him to the doctor's yesterday because he has a herniated belly button. He is in the 82nd percentile for his weight so I think we will have quite the chunkers on our hands! (I'm so excited for the growing rolls to plump up!) In 2 weeks we are flying to North Carolina for a lake trip! My sister-in-law Whitney's family has a couple lake houses and we'll be staying there. I'm a little nervous to fly with a 6 week old baby, I hope he doesn't get fussy. If anyone has traveling tips I'd love to hear them! On Thursday we met up with Katie and Brent and their baby girl Eliza. It was so fun to see them, we officially wanna move back to Hawaii. I miss my Hawaii friends! They are the most awesome girls and a couple have moved back to the mainland but there are some still there. We should all move back and have things the way they were! (I wish I could have gone to that surf video date night with you guys!) This past weekend we had Devin's cousin Brittany's wedding and on Sunday we had Kyla's baby blessing.
