This weekend we enjoyed time at Barren River Lake with my family. My Uncle Paul and Aunt Dee are so gracious to host everyone at their lake house and we love every minute of it. We ate lots of yummy meals, talked on the deck for hours, soaked up the sun in the yard and on the boat, and overall had a great time! Ivy was in a rare form.... I feel like I should whisper it.... she was BRAVE! I was actually a little nervous to take her out on the boat for fears that she would scream bloody murder (even though she LOVED it last time). Over the last few months, she has learned to be scared of... EVERYTHING. She screams about bugs, being alone, loud noises... she refuses to ride small ponies, jump in bouncy houses, or talk to strangers... she is definitely different then the once brave little Ivy!
However, this weekend was like old times! You will have to wait to see the pictures to see all the bravery Ivy exuded on this trip....
On the way to the dock.... they stepped up on a copper head!! AHHHH! So scary! It is now headless in this cage. Ivy watched it all and was very curious about examining the headless snake in it's cage. She kept saying "I see his face over there!"
The girls going on rides in the gator... Ivy was able to join the big girls when Greg volunteered to go along too!
Grandpa in action.... Greg and Dane were declared the winners!
