The Lake…on a whim

Josh informed me one afternoon that we were going to the lake and renting a pontoon boat. That day.
Ok.
I am not spontaneous at all. I much prefer planning and being prepared than not, so after a not-so-fun conversation about why he couldn’t have let me know sooner, we all put on our bathing suits, threw some sunscreen and beach towels in a bag and headed to the lake.

Obviously, the kids had fun.

Who am I to stand in the way of tubing and swimming in the lake??

The tube had room for two kids, so a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors had to be played by Ruby and Mack to see who had to get off the float for Molly to have a turn.
Serious business.

Here’s another funny picture that shows what we look like when I drive the kids to the pool with a large float…

What a sight.

This week starts VBS for the kids. It’s been a while since we’ve had to be somewhere by 9am…here’s to hoping we can make it!
Molly also has sewing camp each afternoon. What a full week we’re about to have. I think I need some serious sleep to get me ready!
But first, one more picture. Yesterday I made breakfast and then sat across these two with their “bed-heads.” It brought me great joy because at times like these I see a bit of my mark on the girls…crazy hair in the morning. Mine lasts all day, but their’s is able to be tamed at this point in their lives.

  1. You mean you don’t sit on ‘go’ waiting to jump in the car and head to the lake??? HAHA — you sound like me. But what a nice balance the kids get — structured fun with Mom and spontaneous (totally cool lake) fun with Dad!!
