Last week we had the opportunity to go to a friend's house and spend the afternoon playing on the lake. We always look forward to the times when we can just simply visit with this dear family, but playing on the water with them is definitely an added bonus. They had also invited Nate, Dawn & the kids over, so it was really fun for the kids to all play together. We all brought food to share together and enjoyed a few fun hours together.
I think Nolan was offering to go get me a drink from inside in this picture. I could be wrong though...
The older group of kids were getting ready to go tubing in this picture. My kids were anxiously waiting their turn.
Nolan didn't mind the boat ride at all, but he DID mind the life jacket. He's just so little and they don't bend or give too much, so it was really riding up around his neck.
"Hold on! It's time to go!!"
They really had so much fun going around the lake! But they definitely had tired arms by the end of the day.
Morgan and Alli had been riding in the boat but they hadn't gotten wet at this point. I was trying to convince Morgan to just jump overboard, but she wasn't interested in doing that quite yet.
Me & my little guy just along for the ride.
Morgan is still contemplating the best way to get in and get use to the water. We tried to lower Nolan down into the water, but it must have been too chilly for him because he pulled his feet back up and was quite content to just stay in the boat.
We couldn't get this girl to get into the boat. That would require her to get out of the water!!
It has been such a great, adventurous summer for our family. It's going to be really hard going back to school in two weeks!!
