Memorial Day weekend in Maytown

We had lots going on this year fro Memorial Day weekend. We were invited to hang out at a friend's lake in Maytown. Maytown is about 10 miles south of Olympia so it is real close to home. Only about 20 minutes away. It was a lot of fun. Derek had to work over the weekend so we were close enough that he was able to hang out a bit although he ended up having to work more than he anticipated, which stunk because he didn't get to play with us in the sunshine.

The group was a bunch of kids a bit younger than us that loved to party but were very mindful of the kids and seemed to enjoy them. It was a great time and I was so glad that we were invited out. I took a ton of pics and was able to whittle it down to just a few or so.

Addie absolutely adores Miss Niki. they had a little dancing game on the deck and were too cute to watch. They would dance from side to side on the deck and then jump off the end. It was cute.
Ethan very quickly found out that the lake and surrounding area was covered in tadpoles and frogs. He quickly named a tadpole Billy and after that they were known as Billies. Here he is searching for billies in a stream around the edge of the property.
On the last day we were there Ethan got to hang out in a boat a little bit. He thought it was the coolest thing ever. he listened so well and sprinted faster than ever to get his life jacket on before the boat left without him.
I thought this picture was cute. Have I mentioned that I LOVE my new camera??
Ethan went for a watery stroll
Addie loves these flip flops. She thinks they are the coolest.
Addie can't get to Niki fast enough when we see her and they are generally inseperable for a bit.
She is so darn cute in those bright sundresses
Addie and Daddy had a blast skateboarding down the hill. It was the perfect amount of slant so that they moved along well but not super fast. Still controlable.
Did Addie tell Aunt Stacy a funny joke?
Addie is the Budlight Monster
Addie loves to fly up in the air and Uncle Jack is so tall she goes waaaaaaay high in the air.
I think Addie jumped off this deck at least 100 times
Some of the guys made Ethan a couple of swords to play with around the fire. Here Ethan is attacking Jeff who took it like a pro.
Aunt Stacy shared donuts with Addie making her Addie's new best friend
Addie went for a tractor ride with Aunt Stacy
Addie wanted to check out the water for frogs then just wanted to stomp around in the lake
Addie loves her daddy and is always most comfortable in his arms
