Big, Big Family Vacay

My Grandma was looking down on us pleased as punch, I'm sure. Almost all of the family was together in one place with the exception of a few (whom we missed, by the way). A bonus for Gma, we were there in honor of her. 

The weekend before her funeral we all got together at the lake. The lake is my happy place and I was surrounded with my parents, my sister, aunts, uncles, cousins, and cousins' kids. 
It was great to see Aunt Joanne, Amy and Michael who came all the way from Washington.
 And dogs. How can I forget the mention the dogs? This was not even all of them.
I spent lots of time on the boat, which is the best place to be. I got to do some wake boarding. The water was calm as far as the eye could see. Absolutely perfect.
As a special bonus, Zekers got up on the wake board, too! I might make him a lake person one day.
I couldn't get the other two to try wake boarding, but they loved tubing with their cousins. There is a story about the tube flying in the air and Zekers was holding on, suspended in mid-air. Umm, thanks for the memories Justin??
My family does the lake right. We had campers to borrow, lake toys, a boat, a jet ski, a huge floatie, fantastic meals, and fish that nibble on your toes. Family time doesn't get much better, folks.
How perfect is this picture?
Daddy, Lijee and Daisy in one kayak, Zeke in another. DanFam5 time in the morning because all of the older cousins were still in bed.
Grandma, you left behind a great legacy.
