However, getting on the road on Friday was a tad rough. Nick was up with an unhappy Grant overnight into Friday morning (we suspected teething) and I woke up with a major case of the sniffles. Grant was super lethargic on Friday morning. He drank a bottle and then immediately went right back to sleep, which is not even close to his normal schedule. I started popping cold medicine and Nick loaded up the car. Really, Georgia was the only member of the crew not exhausted, whiny or complaining about something! But, we decided to make a go of it and start the drive north and see what the day brought us.
We had an uneventful ride (a lethargic and sleepy Grant made the trip fast and smooth) and arrived up to the lake around dinnertime. We met up with Nick's parents, aunts/uncles, and other relatives and family friends for dinner before calling it a night. Grant was still acting bizarre and I was chugging NyQuil in order to guarantee a good night of sleep. Typically, we stay at the Lady of the Lakes Suites, but since there were 4 of us this year, Nick's aunt and her sister graciously offered us their lake house, which is directly in front of the suites. While the suites are 2 bedrooms, the house gave us a 3rd bedroom and some added space.
On Saturday morning, we woke up to drizzle, but with a prediction that the weather would clear by lunchtime. Georgia and I made an early morning run to the grocery store in town and to The Windmill for some shopping. By the time we got back to the lake, the sun was trying its best to come out and play.
Nick was beyond excited to use his new drone over the lake!
By 2pm, we had the boat out and the sun shining!
|Two thumbs up for cold medicines kicking in and being able to breathe again!|
|These two are NEVER allowed on Spring Break out of this country, especially together!|
Grant woke up from an afternoon nap feeling much more himself... and with a new tooth poking out of his upper gums (5 total now).
|I want to play too!|
|Hanging out with Daddy|
|Stop growing up!|
|Watching the action|
This view definitely beats our typical dinner view from our deck...
Grant was definitely feeling much more himself with that tooth out. However, he napped much longer than usual and still wasn't 100% in terms of food. But you know what always makes you feel better? Grandpa sneaking you some strawberry shortcake and ice cream while you play with all the measuring cups, spoons and tupperware in the house!
|Can't spot the new tooth, but a good view of the 4 chompers he's rocking these days!|
|Always jealous of the big kids running around!|
Right before the sun set on our first full day at the lake, I was down at the water with Georgia when I looked up and spotted a rainbow off in the distance. Perfect ending to day #1!
It got super bright for a minute or two and then disappeared as quickly as it came.
