Summer Fun

This summer has been fun. Lots of water activities. Beckie and I took the kids to Rigby Lake last week (for the 2nd time, actually). We wanted one more trip before winter sets in! Ok, fall then. But it feels like winter! Garrett found this huge rock on the edge of the lake and was trying to pry it up. I only envisioned bloody, broken toes. That child is tan, though!

My little man, Ryan. Look at those tan arms and that white chest! He usually wears his swim shirt but I couldn't find it and I was kind of in a hurry. Oh well, thats what they made sunscreen for. Here he is eating cheese crackers. Later, he carries them down to the sand and liberally sprinkles sand in the box. There is still crackers in the box now. It is in my pantry. Eat them at your own risk. Taste good...a little sandy.

The last time we went to Rigby lake, we took Terresa, Remi, Jayson, Liam & Jonah with us. They couldn't make it this time. I forgot my camera last time so I have no pictures of them. *Sigh* Anyway, it was really warm last time. This time-breezy and cooler. The water was cold. See Porter? He is not enjoying the water. He didn't ever enjoy the water this time!

Hannah has become my little poser. She won't just smile for a picture. If she knows you are taking it, she has to pose. She's a funny, burpin', fartin', princessey girl. She'll make you laugh.

That kid is tan too!

Me, hanging out in the water with my kiddos. Ryan was none too happy right then, although he was trying to be tough. Just minutes before, I had been standing in the shallow water, taking pictures and I looked down and he was floating face down in the water, kicking his feet and flailing his arms. I reached down and yanked him out of the water. His eyes were wide open and he was sputtering. He had been standing right next to me in about knee-high water (for him) and I'm not sure what happened. Either he leaned over too far in the water and fell, or a little wave knocked him down. Oh well. He is fine and my heart was pumping. Scary! But, he was a trooper and went back out in the water with me.

Overall, we had a fun time. Glad we did it before summer was over. The kids had fun and keep asking when we can go back. Next summer, kids!
