Kids at Lake
It was warm here this weekend. It reached over 100 degrees. For Oregon, that is hot. My sister and I took the kids to Detroit Lake for a swim for the day.
They had a blast. They were so excited to go. Andrew could not wait. He was so bouncy and every half hour I heard, "Are we almost there?"
It usually takes about an hour and a half to get there.
They did not even want to have their lunch before they jumped in. I figured if they got hungry enough they would be out eating. We found a wonderful spot under the trees so we did not die in the sun. There was a nice cool breeze coming off the lake also, which made it tolerable to be there.
It took Jessie some time to get used to the water. It was nice and cool.
Andrew could not wait for Jess to get all the way in so while he waited he found sticks to play with.
He also found some rocks he could climb on while he waited. My sister could not believe it, he is just like all boys was my advise.
He even talked his mom into letting him jump off the boat dock. He enjoyed that for a while. I could not get him while he was jumping, he is just too fast for me.
Amy had to pull him back out each time, so she got her exercise for the day too.
There they are, finally all the way in. That only took about an hour.
Those two were tuckered out when we were finally done. They fell asleep in the car on the way home. We were there for over 5 hours swimming.
Until later, I hope everyone is staying cool in this wonderfully warm summer.
