And off to meet Grandma Jane at Cherry Flat. A favorite place for such a long time. The water was pretty high compared to when we’re usually there, so we didn’t get to play as much this time. That water…was SO COLD. Dan though, he’s a pro at deep breathing and has trained his body to be like, “oh, this cold water is not a big deal.” So, he jumped off the rocks and swam for a while. Lots of people showed up so we left not too long after.
That water is already super clear, but when the water is a little lower…it’s just amazing!
A short walk to get there and this super funky tree. So cool. Hi Jane!
Meeting Gunner for the first time. These two cousins already love each other so much! SO happy Dan’s sister Kelly could be with us.
Almost 9 months old.
LOOOOVE. Jane-Kelly, you must frame this!
I heart Grandma’s big backyard.
Spent some time at Deerlick Springs. Another fav little hidden spot.
Gunner was pretty fond of Dan. Seriously, I think he smiled everytime he looked at him.
Kelly, Dan, Gunner & Jane
Siblings and cousins.
Need to frame this one, too!
A few pics before a super yummy dinner at the Cafe one night.
Jane works at the cafe at the Indian Creek lodge…their food is so, so good. Dan’s dinner.

Lake Day! Thankful we got to spend time with Dan’s family friends from so long ago. He grew up going to the lake with all these awesome people. The Hunts and Cains.
Grandpa Mike joined us!
We’re pretty sure Sam jumped off the houseboat at least 50 times. That kid! 🙂
So fun to have other kids there. He got along SO well with Davin. That boy has skills on the wake board and surf! It also helps that he and Sam LOVE all things dirt bikes.
Davin caught a fish…and Grandpa Mike showed all the kids how to clean it out. Opening the stomach and all to show them what the fish had been eating. #gross!
Dan’s first time wake surfing. He got up like it was no thing. So fun.
And this pretty much sums up the end of the day. SO tuckered out from all the sun and fun. Thank you Jane for such a good time and for all the yummy food. It felt too short! Can’t wait to see you around Christmas time. LOVE YOU!
