Friday Smile - Lake Cumberland, KY

Man oh's been awhile since I did a Friday Smile, I apologize for that.  I don't have a really good excuse, unfortunately I kept forgetting until Friday, at which point I didn't have any  pictures to upload.  This week...I hope to get back in the swing of posting one of these every week again.

For this Friday Smile edition, you get pictures from a recent trip husband and I took.  It was a family trip to Lake Cumberland in Kentucky.  It was husband and myself, his parents, his brother and his wife and kid.  We were there for 3 days, so it wasn't a long vacation but it was long enough to give us a break from the daily grind of work work and more work.

We did go to Cumberland Falls one day while we were there.  I love being out in nature like this.  Husband and I hiked down to the river and then I thought hmm..I bet I could get a great view of the falls if I climbed up some of these rocks.  Yup...sure enough..great view.

Then I decided that husband needed to climb up on the rocks and look at the falls too..and of course take our picture with the falls in the background.

We went out in a pontoon boat one afternoon, just my husband, his brother, his Dad, and myself.  This is of my FIL, his brother, and myself in the lake.  You have no idea how hard it is to balance on a life vest and give a thumbs up with both hands.  As you can see, myself and his brother are both about to tip over.

This is a picture of the husband and myself on the boat.  The husband has mastered the art of taking pictures of ourselves.  I try it every time and get funky pictures, he does it once and it's perfect.

This is the husband, relaxing and getting some vitamin d.

Here's what I love about this next one.  Look at the little boy's face..isn't that just precious?  Now that is what being a kid is all about, pure joy.

Here's the little guy again, this time being caught by his Dad.  It kept doing belly flops, but doesn't his form look good? :)

That looks like a great way to spend the weekend. I love the photo of the falls. I'm impressed with your husband's ability to take pictures of the two of you!

Bermudaonion - I'm impressed with how well the husband takes photo's of us too! He really mastered the the technique.

Totally love your photos, Kris! I'm with you, though--I can never get photos of Jeff and I to come out quite right. It does look like you had a pretty good time!

Thanks Taminator! It was fun..loved having a couple hours every morning just to read. I think Chris mastered the technique because of all the trips we took by became a staple picture for us, people expecting that type of picture for every trip.
