We recently discovered a lake close by with some friends. The kids have so much fun and I don't have to deal with fighting or tattling plus I get to swim so it is a win win situation. We have gone 5 times in the last 2 weeks. It is a great motivator for getting things done at home. We took Steve on Monday and he enjoyed himself too. The sandy beach is great for kids afraid of the water and the docks are great for the kids that love to jump off, plus they don't have to be the little ones for a while.
The boys on a mission.
What are they up too?
It isn't so easy trying to make a river. Good lesson on water absorption!
The girls playing off one of the docks!
More fun on the playground that is about 10 yards from the water. The poles are made of metal that doesn't get hot. It is really cool.
