We just returned from our 2nd annual trip to Smith Mountain Lake...and fell in love with the place all over again!  During our time in Lynchburg, we were only about an hour drive, so our trips down were fairly frequent...well, Rich and Garrett's were.  The one summer we were down there was the summer of 2010, and since Hudson came June 18th, there weren't many trips down for us.  But, on our trip down last fall, Hudson went on his first boat ride:
Sweet baby.  He was barely 4 months old here.

Even though it was a much further drive this time (5ish hours), it was well worth the trip.  We had a wonderful long weekend.  I did actually take the real camera out of the bag {once} but seeing that this week is a crazy one, it might be a few days before I get it hooked up and the pictures off. 

So, until then, our trip in cell phone pics.....

On the ride down.  He was watching a movie with his sunglasses.  Not quite sure how this happened!  =)

Saturday afternoon - our first day on the boat.  Helping Daddy drive.

Oma came down and stayed Friday night with us.  I wish she liked these guys!

Sunday morning, Hudson thought it was time for a little football.
{our view from the patio...ahhhhh.....}

We went up North today and even got the bonus of seeing cows get into the water for a drink.  Good stuff, I tell ya!

We went back to the condo for a bit and then went out for a sunset / booze cruise.  The boys passed the time with a little peek-a-boo. 

Monday morning, this little cutie decided that 4:30am was a good time to wake up. By 7:15, this is what he looked like:
...and after approximately 10 minutes on the boat after he fell asleep {literally} sitting up, this was what he looked like at about 10:30:

 We couldn't stand the thought of leaving, so we went back out for a couple hours this morning.

I'm not sure what was exactly going on here...some game, I'm sure.

This was how we ended the day.  Hudson desperately wanted to stand on things {I mean, why does this even begin to surprise me??!}.  The bench in the rear was the only place I felt comfortable letting him stand.  Made for a cute shot anyway.
