This weekend Dad came to visit and brought his boat! It was the first time that everyone but me had gotten a ride. Mom made Ellie wear her life jacket because she's not as skilled a swimmer as the rest of us. You can tell by her expression how she feels about boating before we even got in the water!
"I am NOT happy about this"
But I was super happy!! Sun on my face and the wind in my ears! What could be better?
The lull of the boat was very relaxing! It didn't take Ben long to fall asleep!
Until we took a break for some swimming!
Even Miss Ellie went in the water! Only up to her arm pits though! Wimp ;)
Afterwards, all the action called for another nap!
Then Dad decided he was going to go for a swim in the middle of the lake. And Mom decided to throw me in!
My face demonstrates exactly how I felt about that cold, forced swim!
Jack thought it was hilarious!
I was pretty mad at Mom afterwards!
Until I got to wear her shades...
The next day we left Ben and Ellie at home. Mom said something about our boat looking like a floating kennel. We tried a new lake, too.
It was another perfect day!
Lake Badin had a lot of wildlife for Jack to watch!
