A day at the lake

Hi everyone! Well summer must finally be here, because on Saturday (the 19th of June)the lake FINALLY opened up. We were so excited when mommy and daddy got us in our suits. At first we thought that we were just gonna go in our big kiddie pool, we ran down the driveway and was very confused when we looked back and saw mommy had pales and shovels, and even more confused that there was NO water in our pool. Daddy said to hope in the van and that we were going to Comet pond! Yippee. It was a gorgeous out and the water was so nice! We all jumped right in!






Mommy said that she was so proud of us, and how well we could swim. Kylie and I could both ACTUALLY swim. Last year we tried to trick people by using our hands and pushing on the bottom, but not this year. And guess what.....I can even swim UNDER WATER!!!! How cool is that?
Oh, and you know what the best thing about the lake is, the kids there!!!!! I got to see my friend Jamie. We played soccer together last fall. He was there. We swam and built a "pond" of our own. Here we are working on it.

Kylie even helped


While Kylie and I worked on the "pond" with Jamie Daddy and Aiden went for a swim. He LOVED it
And Shane ate some sand. EWWWE!



He also went in the water. He really liked it. He was splashing and smiling!



I think Shane thought it was the Most AMAZING place ever! This was his first trip there after all!



After he was done swimming, Aiden played with Haa-nah. They were SO cute just digging in the sand and talking to each other. Haa-nah is the same age as Aiden, just a few days older than him.


After a while Kylie decided that she would rather go play with some girls out in the water.
and Aiden dug in the sand some more. He really likes the sand


Here's a quick video of me swimming under the water. Check it out. Keep in mind though this was towards the end of the day, and I was getting cold and tired so I didn't swim as long under water as I had been earlier in the day.

While I was doing that Kylie was trying to "Free Willy" we had just seen that movie a few days ago and she was THRILLED when a friend at the beach let her play with their toy killer whale.

After a fun day at the beach, Mommy and Daddy said it was time to go. We didn't want to but they said it was getting to be dinner time and we had to go. I think it was just an excuse, and they are getting old and were just tired. But Mommy insisted that wasn't the case and it was dinner time and that the beach was closing in 30 minuets anyway. Here is Shane in his Mickey Bathrobe/towel. He is so cute!

Here's Aiden and I running to the car....


and Kylie giving a final smile all wrapped up in her towel.

We really had a great time and can't wait till next time. Thankfully we just live down the road so we get to go ALL the time!
