I had a little bit of a blog break there…actually a little bit of a break from everything. The family took a camping trip to the lake. We did some boating, fishing, hiking, biking and genral relaxing around a campfire.
Hubby made a friend right when we got to the campground.
We did a little fishing in the creek:
And found a little snake:
Here’s hubby “walking on water” a.k.a. standing on an old pier right under the water that he found while snorkeling.
A. and E. were practicing their casting:
My girl is getting so grown up!
Here’s E. acting goofy when she sees the camera:
And E-boy’s cheesy grin:
And one more, just ’cause he’s cute:
We took the boat up to the lake this week, and hubby convinced E. to be his partner in “jumping into the water from up high”. I stayed dry and attempted to capture the event on film, as the weather wasn’t too nice that day.
Here they are on the dock:
And daddy dives in:
E. spent a long time working up her nerve to jump.
And she does it! (Notice daddy, AKA rescue swimmer, has put on a wetsuit…yes, the water was that cold.)
And it was fun!
WaHoo! Way to go, E! Here’s what she has to say about it (she wanted to type, I helped with spelling):
DADDY WAS IN THE WATER WHEN I JUMPED OFF THE DOCK. IT WAS FUN!
