Hello everyone.. ~ YAWN ~.. its been such a long day for us around here! First off I posted the pictures from the lake from last Sunday.. Moss Lake.. ( totally different lake than what we went to today ) If you want to see that pic heavy post you can click right here!!
Today we headed off for Lake Lure. Its about an hour from the house and one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. It was amazing.. I took a ton of pictures that I have to go through and get uploaded.. The post will be super super long.. so get prepared!!
I think the only part we got a little tired of was the kids complaining about hiking.. Honestly.. we have lazy kids.. they would rather spend the day in front of all the game boxes, tvs, and computers instead of getting outside and explore.. We just didn't listen and moved them right along. I won't lie.. it was hard as hell. I am sure I burned a billion calories today. Once we hiked to the water fall, they all quickly stopped complaining!! I love this picture above.. these are our young Jaggers family members.. not the youngest but they are still considered the little kids.. Our grandchildren are babies still and our we have the older kids too! I love our large family.. It will be the best Thanksgiving or Christmas when they all can be here at the same time..
Anyway, we hiked for about 3.5 hours and then took off to the beach where we
enjoyed the late afternoon. It was much better to hike first and then swim.. the water felt really good... and the view was
breathtaking! Its truly one of my favorite places.
We stayed until the beach closed up and somehow.. I have no idea how.. the kids convinced Scott on the ride home to go to Family Night Swim at the pool. I thought they were all crazy for wanting to go do yet more swimming and running around.. Where does that energy come from? I sure don't have it.. But we got home about 7pm and left about 720. C-R-A-Z-Y-..
So we spent our night
at the pool... I swam for about an hour and then I sat out.. I almost fell asleep at our table.
At 930 we left the pool and ended our fun but exhausting day. We came home.. all got showers and had fast microwaveable meals...and in bed they went. Jackson told me that he didn't even want to watch tv at bed.. that says how tired he is..I could fall over.. I am on the couch and don't have any idea where I am going to muster up the strength to make the coffee, pick up the living room, and get breakfast ready.. I am just done. We all plan on sleeping in as long as we want tomorrow.. well, not husby.. =( I will probably be up at 7am.. I don't know what is up with that.. but thats been the case for a while now. I don't just get up and get active at that hour.. but I do turn on the news.. get some coffee..and lay around until everyone is up. The good thing about summer is for the kids there are no alarm clocks.. and we go on our own schedules!
Well, I am off to get things done.. I have a lot of pictures and videos to keep in the coming days that I will be working on!
Have a great Wednesday!
