This past weekend I was scheduled to do a family shoot in the rustic little town of Hiawasssee, North Georgia with the most adorable family (more about that later in the week), and instead of making the 2 hour drive, shooting and driving 2 hours back, the hubby and I decided to use the opportunity for some family fun. We stayed at Boundary Waters Resort & Marine and literally 50m from our apartment and we were right on the docks looking out onto Lake Chatuge.
Keane told us he wanted to go swimming in the lake. We tried explaining that late September meant the lake might not be all that warm, but he wouldn’t hear of it, so off he went with Daddy (no way I was getting into a cold ass lake) to see for himself.
And the face says it all, Momma & Dadda were right, cold.
Pouty lip of disappointment.
To make up for not getting to swim, we said Keane could go out on his first kayak adventure. It took a few minutes and a few smacks to Daddy’s face from our little oar slinger, but eventually he got the technique down.
While the bigger boys were kayaking Cullen and I explored the marina.
And looked for fish.
While waiting for the fish, this little fella showed up.
Keane and Daddy got back just in time to feed the duck some crackers.
Back to the apartment.
The next day it was off on a boat to enjoy a lazy afternoon crusising the lake.
The wind in our faces.
Everyone wants to drive.
We dropped anchor so we could just sit and enjoy the warm Fall sun and the view.
The lake breeze rocked one little boy off to sleep.
So we had a slight issue rolling the anchor back up, the issue being, we couldn’t. Somehow it got stuck. There’s Daddy getting frustrated trying to figure out a way to get it up and thats me being supportive and smiley. In case your wondering, Keane snapped this photo. He’s actually decided he wants to take pictures like Momma and is going to ask Santa for a camera. Now I have to watch him cos he’s constantly trying to steal my very expensive camera.
Another Keane capture.
And he just kept snapping.
Until Cullen was over it.
