|Having fun at Lake Gregory!!!|
Last weekend, my family had a mini-reunion at Lake Gregory Regional Park! My parents, my sisters and I are all scattered around Southern California, so once a year we like to meet up somewhere fun and spend some time together!
We rented a big cabin and cooked instead of eating out – both of which saved everyone money. Each family was in charge of making two meals, and for our contribution, we made a steak salad and a fruit salad for lunch on Sunday, and bacon, sausage, and pancakes for breakfast on Monday!
On Saturday, we enjoyed swimming in the lake, and the kids loved the zero-depth water play park! Later, while my parents watched Troy, Chris and I rented an aqua cycle and paddled on the water for awhile, which was both relaxing and a nice workout! 🙂
On Sunday evening, we took my niece and nephew to the park and played some kickball, and Chris and I got a preview of what life will be like when Troy is a toddler. I’ll just say that it’s a good thing we’re getting in shape!! 😀
We had a terrific weekend, and Troy had a blast spending time with his cousins! My niece was especially fascinated with him, and wanted to play with him as much as she could!

The one thing we absolutely needed to make our vacation a success was an infant travel crib. Troy needed a comfortable and safe bed if my husband and I wanted to get a good night’s sleep. We ended up choosing the Graco Travel Lite Crib, and we couldn’t have been happier with it!
