When I saw this sign at one of the marinas I nodded my head in agreement.
The next few days we fell into what would be our daily schedule for the week. Wake up and see the amazing views of the lake.
Eat breakfast, put on swimsuits, and either swim, enjoy the sunshine or float in the water. While the adults relaxed the kids jumped off the top of the house boat. Over and over and over.
Next up would involve a little wake-boarding or tubing and everyone would take turns.
My little two are still learning to wake-board so they like to ride with the Mr.
This girl is an old pro by now though and loves to ride every chance she gets!
By this time everyone is usually hungry so it's back to the houseboat for lunch. As you can see, most of the week it felt like we were the only ones there.
We'd spend the rest of the afternoon doing pretty much more of the same. Lost of swimming, fishing, jumping, paddle boarding and relaxing.
We also did some turtle spotting. The kids were convinced we saw this same turtle everywhere we went.
That was until we went to the marina one day to get more ice and saw this:
The most turtles in one place that I have ever seen in my life! They were eating whatever people would throw down for them including crackers or the "fish food" that you could buy for $0.25.
We usually stayed in one place for two nights, but if we did decide to move locations on the lake this is how we traveled.
We had planned to go out to eat a lot more than we did, but with a grill on the houseboat we just ended up cooking most nights which was nice after a long day on the water. Everyone was just fine with that because it meant we could just be casual and the girls loved it because they wanted to wear their Simply Southern shirts every chance they got.
We did decide to get all dolled up and go to dinner one night. It was fun to change things up a bit!
We ate at the Jamestown Marina and the food was really delicious.
The views of the sunset on the way back to the houseboat were breathtaking!
