My brother-in-law and sister-in-law live on a "lake" and last Saturday afternoon, we were invited over for a boat ride and dinner with some family. As it turns out, the body of water is too small to be a lake and is officially a pond. That didn't really seem to matter to the girls though.
Here's Allie being goofy with her sunglasses on the drive there.
This is what happens when I have my camera in hand and say, "Why don't you walk down to the water together," to the girls. Look at Allie's little "sticking out my lower jaw" smile.
We changed the girls into their bathing suits so that we could all head out to a little island beach. The girls loved both the boat ride and swimming. They were never afraid and really soaked up the newness of it all. When we returned back to the house for dinner, the girls kept asking when we could go on the boat again.
We even had yummy smores (aka snores and smorgs) for dessert!
I do have to say that one of the funniest comments from the girls was about sharks. They asked if there were sharks in the lake. I told them no. Then Allie starting saying, "If there is a shark, do you have to kick to get away from it? Is that what you do, Mommy?" Ahhhhh.... I didn't quite know how to respond to that one.
