As much as the lake holds a special place in my heart, it will also hold that lure and nostalgia for my kids. It's quickly becoming their favorite summer hangout as well. Here's a sneak peek of how we spent the weekend, again with my cousins--only we've become the parents now. ;)
Mac called these his "fireworks".
The girls had a jumping contest. Of course I was the judge and got to name the next jump, which usually involved some sort of twist so I could capture their jumping faces. "Cannon Ball!" "Twist!"" and now "Cannon Ball Twist!" The one I really wanted was of them holding hands and jumping. But I missed the shot. Several times. But I'm not giving up.
Yes, I got wet after those shots. I had to QUICKLY hide my camera behind my back.
That $1 Store squirt gun may have been the best buy of the summer, especially for a little boy who refused to get in the water for 2/3 of the weekend. That boat and the water gun were his best friends!
