Our latest endeavor

Andy has always had a vision of us living on the lake. He amazes me that when he sets his sights on something, he makes it happen. He definitely had some visionary help from a friend:)
So, now we have a lot on the lake that we'll build on next year. He and I are so different, it makes me laugh, and I am so blessed to have him. Growing up here in Austin has made me a bit partial to the water as well. It is dreamy on the water in the mornings.
Some may be a little concerned about us turning into lake rats...
All week we've been going down in the mornings. The big bass, turtles, grey heron, and mallards are already our friends. Uncle Daniel gave Caroline a fancy fishing pole named the "Lady Fish" which she baits with worms and take off the fish herself. It is quite a sight!
They are all looking and pointing at the bass at the end of the dock.
There are 4 pecan trees in a perfect kickball diamond. Lucy needs some work.
We've had many family kickball games already.
We were able to have a little birthday party for Caroline there.

I am looking forward to many, many big family gatherings, parties, relaxing with friends, and raising 4 kids romping around here. Thank you Andy for making this happen!!
