You would think from this picture that Joelle was super excited to start going down those slides. Especially since she had gotten so used to being in water over the last several days. Well, I took her down one kiddie slide before she started freaking out. I guess landing in the water was a bit cold for her right away. Plus, it was quite a windy day so that didn't help matters even though the sun was quite warm. It just got off to a bad start. It took her at least an hour to finally start having fun -- although she refused to go down the kiddie slides all by herself with someone catching her at the bottom. Les had to go with her every time. But at least she was finally having fun!!
Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of it. It's hard to have the camera around when you both have to be in the water or on a slide. So it was locked up in a locker for most of the time. I did get a short video of Les going down a little slide with both of the girls -- but I can't get it to rotate the right way, so I'm not sure yet if it's going to work to post it.
And just like that we are saying good-bye to our family holidays -- well, I only go back to work on Tuesday so I have a few more days, but Les has to work this weekend...but luckily only for a few hours in the morning on weeends, so once he gets home from work tomorrow we are heading out to the lake once more. This time for an extended family gathering. The fun just keeps on going!!
Oh -- but before I go...here are a few more miscellaneous pictures from our week:
Malia absolutely loves her sunglasses. Normally they're supposed to stay in the van, but somehow they made their way inside so she wanted to wear them for breakfast one morning!!
And...our lawnmower finally came out of retirement this week!! It's been TWO YEARS since we (or should I say Les) have had to mow our lawn.
Have I mentioned how much I love having grass?!?!
