On Thursday last week we all went to the local pub for supper. It was my Mom and Step-Dad's anniversary and they treated us (a little backwards, but we'll take it!). After some delicious pub-grub we decided to go to the elementary school to walk off some calories while the kids played on the playground (visit 3 playgrounds is on our list!). We had a nice visit and were on our 5th or 6th lap when some friends arrived from the Home and School Committee to plant a memorial tree. Once the tree was planted they mentioned that they were heading to the lake next for a swim. My kids heard that and were AAAAAAAAAAALLLLLL over it! It was already bedtime so I wasn't sure, but they reminded me that we hadn't crossed off "swim in a lake" yet, so we dashed home for our suits and headed for the lake.
(if you follow me on facebook you've already seen these photos; I loved them so much that I had to share them right away)
A bunch of photos I love of my kids loving summer. :)
My favourite freckle-face
Mom and Terry stuck around to watch and snap some photos of their own, staying mainly to the safety (from the bugs) of the car and the comforts of the newspaper and Sirius radio.
I started worrying a bit about that anvil-shaped cloud blocking the sun, and sure enough, about 10 minutes after we pulled into our driveway the sky opened up and dumped a bunch of water on us. It was a heavy shower but only lasted about 10 minutes. All in all, a very good show.
This was the view in our driveway just before the rain hit:
