Weekend At The Lake and 9 Other Things That Make Me Happy

As mentioned yesterday and on Instagram (@kjansen), we went to my Aunt's lake house this past weekend.  We stayed overnight to make the most of our time there, as it's about a 2 hour drive one way.

We always have such a wonderful time there spent with my side of the family.  Lake LBJ is my favorite central Texas lake because of it's beauty and constant level.  My favorite, and I think I can speak for my kids also, are long boat rides.  This year was the first time the little guy actively "boated", as previously he just fell asleep.  He was smiling the entire time and sticking his tongue out like a dog.  We had perfect weather, and in fact got our first little sunburn of the year.  (Whoops, I forgot to put sunscreen on my kids!)
I feel like this picture makes all the kids look really close in age.  Well....they ARE.  But, you know....like quadruplet close.  Okay, maybe just the middle two look like they could be twins.  Anyone with me here?
My Aunt's husband makes the BEST homemade burgers.  He has a secret ingredient when grilling the buns that makes it just divine.  No burgers ever measure up to his in my book.

It was a happy time and thankfully everyone behaved themselves.
And no one went overboard.  :)
