Lake Keowee Getaway

Last week we spent the week at gorgeous Lake Keowee in South Carolina.  We used to have a house on this lake so it felt like old times being back there again.   We love it because it isn't crowded, the water is so clear and pretty, and the views at the northern part of the lake are amazing with the mountains in the background.  

We went with our very good friends who we have been vacationing with for over 10 years.  My friend, K, and I met when we were put together as co-teachers in a First grade classroom.  

We taught together for two years before each having our oldest girls!  Just look at how cute they were getting ready to go out on the boat 12 years ago!!!
And now they are all grown up! 

Our second girls were also born right around the same time and they have all been such great friends ever since.  

They live in Florida so we only see them a couple times a year, but it always feels like we pick up right where we left off!  

We spent the week have so much fun and making so many memories.  We laughed a ton, went on lots of adventures, and relaxed a lot, too!  

We made several visits to the waterfall and the kids climbed up to the top!  

We love hanging out in this area because there is a shallow area for kids to play, the waterfall is obviously gorgeous to look at and there are usually a lot of boats so it makes it a fun atmosphere! 

The kids loved tubing and all of them spent a lot of time wake-boarding this year, too! 

We did a lot of swimming and splashing around!  

We grilled out several nights, but our favorite things to do is get dressed up and head to The Lighthouse by boat.  It's an amazing restaurant you can get to by boat or by car.  So much more fun to go by boat though!  

The food is AMAZING and the kids love the huge grassy lawn right outside.  They have been playing on that lawn since they were toddlers, little kids and now as big kids, too!  How sweet is this picture of them from 5 years ago and then now!  

The week away was just what we all needed to catch up with friends, spend quality time with family, rest and recharge!  We already planned our trip for next year while we were together and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
