Memorial Day at the Lake!

May 27, 2016 | Our great friends invited us to their lake house again for Memorial Day weekend, and we jumped at the opportunity.  As our E-girls are getting older they are having MORE fun together (with the occasional toy-snatch, mostly by our kid), and it’s just amazing to watch.  We arrived and mostly just snacked & hung out on their deck.

After breakfast, it was time to introduce the girls to water balloons.  It was pretty darn awesome.  They caught on pretty quick, and while M filled the balloons D helped with the hose.  That sounds way more scandalous than it is.  He also assisted when M needed a beverage… 🙂

I found these floaties at Target, and they were a big hit with the girls.  There was a lot of “RAWR!” and running/jumping/marching around.  Followed by trying to hide from the paparazzi (aka; wearin’ some shades).

The next morning I brought out the finger-paints and paper.  Diaper-only for this activity, and they were so focused!  And loved looking at all of the colors on their hands/feet.  Their E won for the most colorful legs at the end of their creation, then it was time for clean-up.  I think that our E was still playing while M spent about 10-solid-minutes trying to convince his daughter that it was ok to get some of the hose water on her feet.  Just to clean her up.  She was NOT having it…suddenly our child bursts over there and runs through the water like this happens daily.  It was crazy!  It didn’t take long for her BFF to follow-suit, and I took about 100 photos of it.  You can almost hear them laughing in that water spray!

Baby N just smiled at this crazy pair, and the weekend was so much fun.  Kids at the lake is a different beast for sure, but I love being a part of all the “firsts” and fun!

Some phone-pics too:
