As I mentioned in my previous post, my brother-in-law lives on a pond. (Actually, two of Rich's siblings live next to each other. More boats!) We, especially the kids, always refer to it as "the lake" but it's not big enough to be a lake, which has its advantages. It's quiet and calm with no public access and there's a small island with a good area for swimming.
I'm so happy with how all of these photos came out but the fact that Anna is not really in them doesn't sit well. She was there with us when all of these were taken; she just wasn't in the mood to be photographed and I wasn't going to force her to pose. Forced posing doesn't work for anyone. Whenever anyone asked her how she felt, she would respond with, "I feel fine. I'm not sick." She's a fighter. And incredibly cute wearing my sunglasses.
