Down By The Lake

Swimming in a lake is a summer must-do! We have a lake in our neighborhood (actually right behind our house) perfect for swimming. This summer, now that they are better swimmers, we allowed the kids to go swimming in the lake. They had the time of their lives!

I love these stairs. They lead from the pool area down to the floating dock where the kids spent hours jumping into the water.

Adrian front-flipped right in!

 Amberly is more a "let's test it out first" type of girl.

She quickly joined in the fun though...

This is the face of pure childhood joy!

Jumping with Dad...

This daredevil isn't scared of a thing. He wouldn't even stop a second to get a good picture!

Solo jumping isn't as fun as being launched into the water.

He is so happy in the water. I might have given birth to some sort of human-fish hybrid!

This is exactly what dads and uncles are for. Cool jumps!

I snuck away to get this shot of all of them enjoying their afternoon. My brother and his friends joined in so I know they all had a great time.

Cross this experience off the summer bucket list and into our memories forever!


  1. Ok, gorgeous photos! They just epitomize summer. And where you live, I guess you get that a lot more often than we do!
    And gorgeous lake too! Are there any gators in it? (I'm so northern)

  2. This looks like such a fun day! I think I would be a bit more timid like your daughter and get into the water slowly...I would not want to be launched LOL
