We went to Lake Norman, NC for our Lottes Family vacation. It was full of water sports, family and fun!
We waited and waited and waited for our car! Finally they had one ready, we were upgraded to a bigger SUV since they were out of minivans. Maura was very excited!
The house was great, plenty of rooms, nice deck and the kids favorite…water sports!
Everyone attempted getting up on the boards~ Max had some help from Uncle Rob.
I love Ben's tongue!
This is how they all unwind after a day in the sun :)
We went to an Olympic Training Center for zip lining, white water rafting and other climbing stuff. I even zip lined! No pictures but it really did happen! Max and I were in a raft together for white water rafting, no pictures of that either since we were in a raft but we had a great time. I was glad to be on an easier course than the other groups!
Maura lost a tooth on vacation!
And the tooth fairly even finds us on vacation!
Very large table needed for this family dinner.
The joys of having a cousin's hair to fix.
Kate and my selfie, we made the boat juice, not sure how good it was but we made it :)
Everyone loved the blackened grilled fish that they caught that morning.
We had one very rainy boat day~ I don't know how many times we tried to meet up with the other boat but most of the time we were in the middle of a downpour.
Our captain for the rainy boat adventure.
Maura wasn't a fan of rain even when the sun came out she was still moody but look at those pretty eyes :)
Me and my honey after attempting to get up on the wake board~ didn't make it up but I gave it a good effort!
Lunch at a pub before waiting to catch our flight back to STL
A few more screens to pass the time before our flight leaves.
