It took us what felt like a day and a half to actually get to the lake. We had to switch the kids car seats into my Mom's car so that we could all ride together and Mason could come. Then stop at Safeway to grab lunch and snacks. Finally unload all of the things and get them down to the beach with three small kids.
But once we were there it was all worth it. We met up with Kelly, Zack, and Ryan. The kids all loved the lake and the sand and being there together!
Preston got right into the water and just wanted to stay there!
Olivia wanted to do some swimming too. Then opted to play in the sand instead.
Preston and Zack!
This girl on the beach in her swimsuit just slays me! She's so dang cute!
The boys were all over the dang place in the water. They were having a blast! I loved that one the water wasn't all that deep you could almost walk out to the swim line and still touch and two that they were all wearing their life jackets and puddle jumpers without argument!
On the other hand, Olivia just kept trying to run into the water. No fear. She would race in and then try to throw her face in the water. Even when her face went into the water she came up smiling. And she didn't want to wear her puddle jumped. No no. She's a big girl. She's going to be the death of me.
I'm not sure which the kids liked more, the water or the sand!
We attempted to get a photo of all of the kids. It didn't go so well. The sun was in their eyes and they were just not feeling it. I can't imagine that it had anything to do with having spent several hours in the sun.
Then one of these three cousins. Olivia wouldn't even sit.
These boys gave me some smiles though!
I love lake days and the people I get to spend them with!
