Canyon Lake Evening Trip

We went to Canyon Lake last night. We got there around 6pm. Maybe just before 6, I didn’t look at a clock. We stayed until a little while after dark. It was about 8pm when we left.
It was really crowded when we got there. With very interesting types of people. And their many, many dogs. Does a family really need to bring four dogs to the lake and let them run wild? Because these dogs really liked Ember. Someone just my size! New BFF!! And they’d run over.
Ember was safely on mommy’s hip or up on mommy’s shoulders, where she remained until we found a new location without dogs.
Dogs. I hate dogs around my kids.

Of course just as bad was all the cigarette smoke. Or the booze. These people really know how to partay.

But in the end, we found a decent spot (it wasn’t decent but it was better than the first couple places we tried) and we had a decent time. Well, that’s an average- the kids had a BLAST and Allan and I didn’t hate it, so all in all= decent.

Ember learned how to do eskimo kisses last week (before that but it’s a daily thing the last week). Because she doesn’t speak well we called them nose kisses. Which got shortened to nosies. So we all call them nosies now. And it’s soooo cute!

I feel bad that I have a favorite child. But can you blame me?!

This was the second spot we tried out. The first was the one I talked about before with all the dogs, booze, and cigarettes. This one was private and pretty good. I actually liked this spot the best. There were a million cigarette butts on the ground and some litter but hey… that’s better than… well… running wild dogs. haha
Don’t get me wrong, dogs are as entitled to a lake trip as my kids are, I’ll just find a different location to let my kids play at ๐Ÿ˜‰

Payson’s been doing this “sweet” smile as he calls it. He looks so goofy!

Allan fishes strictly with lures and goes for bass. But with kids that’s not the most exciting so we use cheese (or hotdogs, worms, whatev) and go for bluegill. This cheese we brought was falling off the hooks right away so we just gave it to the kids to eat. Well, not Payson, of course.

I don’t like Ember having a lot of cheese because she struggles with constipation sometimes but she really, really wanted some.

Allan told the girls to always look behind them before they cast and make sure nobody is standing there. Sierra did such a good job of that! ๐Ÿ™‚

This kid lives for outdoor adventures. He heard we were heading to the lake and was just so so genuinely happy.

One of the kids was telling me something. Talking a mile a minute. This is the expression I do when they just talktalktalktalktalktalktalktalkQUICKBREATHtalktalktalktalktalktalktalk. Do I look interested? I feel like my ears will start bleeding any second when they do that but I try to listen enough to feign interest.

This is the last spot we went to.

Allan and I laughed about Payson walking around like this. And then when he did this goofy smile, ha.

I call this next picture: Serial killer Sierra.

There was a dead fish there. She was talking about how gross it was and oh my gosh doesn’t have eyes!!
Photobucket

I love this picture of Brooklyn. She looks so mellow and sweet.

Cute!! She had mini french braids the day before and her hair looked kinda goofy. But in a cute way.

He was kicking really hard splashing everyone. That’s joy on his face right there. Doing something that maaaaybe he shouldn’t. (Not that we cared, it’s a lake, but he thought we might care)
