The Lake

Monday evening after our very fun trip to the splash pad, we hit the lake with Jason’s brother and his wife! We went down after it cooled off a bit. This was the first time Kendall had been there and the first time that Connor was even interested in swimming in the lake. For me, this is GROSS!! I can’t stand to swim in water for which I cannot see the bottom! It is just not right! But the kids loved it. Especially Kristen! That girl will swim in anything, I think!!!

Kendall wasn’t too sure about walking down to the water at first! She was so concerned about getting wet!! 🙂

Once she actually got to the water, she was all about getting DIRTY! She had the best time throwing sand at Daddy and at Rosie! Daddy buried her feet in the sand which she didn’t like very much!

She decided to be brave and wander out into the water (with Daddy right by her you just can’t see him in the picture)! Not knowing that the bottom of the lake is very lumpy, she lost her balance and down she went!


She did not want to get close to the water after that! Can’t say that I blame her!


Connor did very well. He started off slow but eventually ended up in the water about thigh deep playing with some of the other boys that were there. He was SOOOOO proud of himself for getting in!!!


Kristen is a little fish and would live at the lake or any other body of water if we would let her! I kept trying to get some good pictures of her but she was too far away from me! She swam the WHOLE time we were there!

This is definitely a trip we will have to make more often!

Only if someone can tell the flies that the lake is not a cool place to hang out!!!

    Oh fun! It is too bad Kendall fell in, think a very similar thing happened to Hannah too!

    oo looks so beautiful! Hopefully the more times you go the more confident the kids will get with the water!
