First Trip to Lake of the Ozarks
This past week was Katie's first trip to Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, where her Mom has been taking family vacations for the past 17 years (Dad included in the past 5). The Peters Family packed up the car (including Daisy and Eddie) and drove the annual 12-hour trek to the Lake. Unfortunately, the normally 12 hour drive took about 16 hours due to bad weather, but, proving to be an even more amazing baby than we thought possible, Katie was an absolute angel. She took the many hours of being strapped in her car-seat in perfect stride and as long as she could see Mom next to her, she was as happy as could be!
Katie was introduced to swimming for the first time at the Lake. Although she and her cousin Parker are too young for lake swimming, Nana Kat and Poppy Paul got a blow up mini pool that was set up on the deck over-looking the Lake so that their Grandchildren still got their swimming time. As you can see, they had a blast!
Katie also had fun modeling her sunhat and bathingsuits.......
Katie had a wonderful time relaxing with her family all week. She loved hanging out with her Cousin Parker, Nana Kat, Poppy Paul, Aunt Kristen and Uncle Owen. Playing "airplane" was one of her favorite activities!
Nana Kat and Poppy Paul spent a lot of time babysitting Katie so that Mom and Dad could go out and water ski, jet ski and go on a dinner date. They were the best babysitters ever and they helped us all to have a wonderful vacation!
Katie had a wonderful time at the Lake and she can now add Kansas and Missouri to the list of states she has been to (Michigan and Illinois). She can't wait to go back next year! :)
