lake time!

It's finally lake season again. We went today for the first time this year and the kids absolutely loved it. I wasn't sure that we were going to get to go because Anthony has had strep throat and gastro this week (Caroline had gastro last week) and last night he still wasn't feeling very well. But when we got up this morning the first thing he asked was when we were leaving for the lake. The water is still frigid and Chad and I didn't get in at all but Anthony was jumping off the back of the boat and swimming around and didn't think it was that bad. Good thing I was holding on to Caroline's life jacket because as soon as the boat stopped she tried to jump off the boat also. She has no fear at all. I didn't let her jump in but I eased her down in the water and she decided she wanted back up, I'm sure because it was just so dang cold. Then about 30 seconds later she wanted back in, we did that the entire day. She also thinks that when we are riding that she can walk around on the boat. Not sure why she thinks she can walk around on a moving boat when she struggles to walk on land but she did. She would fall and get right back up and walk some more. She also starting telling me "No ma'am" today, guess she is just repeating me because I tell her that all the time. So when I would tell her no about climbing on the back of the boat she would say "No ma'am, no ma'am" and of course keep trying to climb.

Don't you just love her sunglasses? She wears them all the time now. It's hard to get her to take them off at all while we are home, in the grocery store, or outside. I bought her the cutest bathing suit yesterday but since we didn't get off the boat because of the cold water she never had her life jacket off so I couldn't get a picture.

Here are just some pictures of when we were outside playing this week.
Can you tell Anthony dressed himself to go outside??!!
I just love the smile on her face in this one.
