A Little Slice of Heaven

Last weekend we had an amazing trip to Lake Burton. The Whaley's have a place there and are kind enough to entertain Chad and I (and now Griffin) about once a summer for the last few years. We always have SOOO much fun with them and the weekend is always action packed, as Chad and Steve are probably the most competitive people I know....and they love competing against each other. Apparently this started long, long ago when Chad was a wee young lad.

To add to the fun of the weekend, the Herring's met us there as well. Although everyone was excited for a weekend at the lake, the main attraction was, of course, Griffin! The Whaley's hadn't met him yet and Gram and Grandpa just couldn't wait to get their hands on him!

The weekend consisted of oooh-ing and ahhhh-ing over Griffin's new crawling skills and how much he has grown and changed in the last month or so; shopping for the girls; golf for the boys; wake boarding for Chad and me; and tennis (young Herrings vs. the Whaleys). Griffin went on his 1st (and 2nd) boat ride and seemed to enjoy it alright. He at least tolerated it...and there was no screaming bloody murder when we put him life jacket on (unlike the first time we tried it in Hilton Head a few months ago).

As with most fun and busy weekends, it went by way too fast, but at least it was well documented so we will never forget a second of it! Below is a mere glimpse at the hundreds (probably closer to thousands) of pictures we took that weekend.

Even though Chad and I were feeling the pain of our action packed weekend for many days after, we had such a great time and enjoyed being with the Herrings and the Whaleys so much. Lake Burton is probably one of the most beautiful places in Georgia (a little slice of heaven if you ask me) and we feel luky to get to spend some time there every so often....Thanks for a great weekend Steve and Anna!
