How To Beat The Texas Heat

034
You load up the GRANDKIDS,  boat & 5th Wheel & head to the lake!    It was our first 100 degree day of the season… and we wanted to get away to play (Yes, that’s me on the right).
005 White Cliffs
Lake Whitney is not far from our home.  It is well known as one of the cleanest lakes in Texas.  Folks taking scuba certifications use this lake because of the fact that it is deep, clear & is made up of white limestone rock.  As you can see from the beautiful cliffs above… it makes for some stunning views.

What do Grandfathers do at the lake?   Sleep while you swim, snack while you swim & ride out front when Daddy is driving.  This is called “Chilling out with Bop Bop” & our little ones love it (SO DOES Bop Bop).  Oh… & he pays for everything… that’s the best thing about Bop Bop’s they pay & they say yes to everything.

I’m so proud of the Man/Daddy my son has turned out to be!  It makes a Momma proud!

And the princess????
039 Elle
A lot of sleeping with wind in her hair.  She loves the boat & going “Campin”.  But, it was hot & we were tired & had PLENTY of sun so we headed back early. THIS IS HOW YOU BEAT THE HEAT IN TEXAS & MAKE MEMORIES TO LAST A LIFETIME! Go out & make memories with those YOU love! 
HUGS!  Charlene

Forgot to add that Whitney is where I was certified for scuba back in 84'. Good times!

Looks like a wonderful day for the family. No heat here in Homer Alaska this summer we finally made 60 for two days and now we're back to clouds and sprinkles.
