S: Table Rock Lake 2012
BC: Can't wait to come back next year...
FC: Table Rock Lake | June 2012
1: Our second vacation to Table Rock Lake: This year we planned early enough to visit in June and the weather was perfect. A little cloudy and windy at times, but we could always find smooth water. We took Grandpa & Grandma Postma's boat and they came to join us for a few days also.
2: We spent our first evening at the resort pool. We were all tired from the trip. It had been a busy week with softball games. Mary Kate had a double-header Thursday night in Sioux Center and we left right after her game for vacation (approx. 8 pm). We drove through some pouring rain and finally stopped around 1:00 a.m. at a hotel in St. Joseph, MO. We arrived in Branson on Friday afternoon.
3: We left for the lake by 8:30 Saturday. It was busy with boaters by noon. | So we took a break and did a little shopping and went back on the water for the evening.
4: this lake!
6: Every year we are amazed at the beauty of God's creation when we visit here.
7: Allison showing her talents
10: Isaac's First Boat Mom picked up a boat at WalMart so Isaac had something to float on. As usual, it took some getting used to, but once he did, he wanted to be on the go in his boat!
11: On Monday we met up with the Huerter's from Pella. They brought Sea Doo's and took the kids to the cliffs.
12: Mary Kate, Emma, Abigail, Allison
13: The sun was setting and we were ready to get a bite to eat. These geese were very hungry also and gobbled up some crackers.
14: At the restaurant, we had the whole porch to ourselves. Mason and Isaac had fun chasing each other. Isaac really looked up to Mason!
15: Tuesday we met up with the Huerters again. It was so fun having friends on the lake!
18: Abby finally decided to try skiing to satisfy her dad. She got right up! | Allison gave it a try too and did fabulous. Although they still prefer tubing!
19: Making Memories
21: Fun in the Tub | (back at the condo)
24: Emma showed us their new toy - a flat disc to ride on. Since you have to go slow with this one (max. speed 15 mph), Brenda thought she would give it a try. It is definitely different! | Abby on the disc showing her stuff. She didn't waste any time turning around.
26: Brad attempting the slalom course. This was an experience!
27: Of all the tubing the kids did, the double was the most memorable!
31: Our last stop at Table Rock 2012 was another visit to the cliffs for those that did not get to experience it the first time. We were not disappointed!
33: Did your mom really let you do this??
34: While everyone was having fun on the cliffs, Isaac & Grandpa had lots of fun hanging out in the tube
