Swimming at Lake Striker

Last Sunday after church, we drove out to the lake to meet up with Jake and Allison who were visiting Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Johnny for the week while their parents were in Hawaii. Grammy, Pa, Uncle Tone and Grandma all came out too. We had an amazing lunch and an awesome afternoon visiting! Carli was very excited to see Jake and Allison and to show them Grammy's big big water. :)

After lunch, we took a swim in the lake. The girls had a blast, it seems the love for water skipped a generation. But being the good mother that I am (wink) I put on my swimsuit and crawled right in to supervise!

Ava had so much fun. She even laid back to "float" but the sun was in her eyes so she didn't like that much.

She did "float" for a minute or two before she had had enough.



We bought Carli a puddle jumper floatation device and it worked really well. She slowly gained confidence the longer she was in the water. Uncle Tone helped a little...


"I can do it all by myself"
Words I hear multiple times a day!


Carli did attach herself to Allison - so glad Allison was such a good sport. I'm sure she was worn out by the end of the day!

The girls was so tired, that church that evening was actually quite pleasant - not near as much "shushing," or threatening to go out if they didn't sit still! :)

Yeah, pretty sure this Lake House being only 30 minutes away is going to be a wonderful place where awesome memories are made!
