Lake Day

Our friends invited us to spend the day with them at their fantastic lake house. The lake is small, so it's warm but big enough so you can ski on it. The boys were in heaven! It was a chilly summer day, but that didn't keep anyone out of the water. The water was actually warmer than the air. 
Andrew was fearless! He jumped off the boat house at least 20 X and each time he would walk to the edge, make sure no one was in the water under the house, and then walk all the way back for a running jump. He was so cute and adventurous!
Jacob spent most of the day on this amazing rope swing, swinging and jumping the day away! He had a fantastic day getting shivery wet, then dry, and wet again. This morning he asked if we could go to the lake again today.
The boys tended the fire, waiting for it to be coal ready for pre-dinner mellow roasting. They just chatted and stood out there for a good 45 minutes poking at the fire. Awesome boy stuff! --Emily
