at the lake
Another trip to the lake, this time a small lake in Buchanan that we used to visit as kids. It is a lot easier for the kids to swim in than Lake Michigan-- no waves, pretty shallow, and much warmer! Jack and Olivia amazed us with their swimming skills. Livi insisted that I shoo away the fish to make a path for her. The babies had a lot of fun as well-- it's funny how fearless they are in the water, I guess they haven't learned anything to be afraid of yet.
Ruby took a short little nap (under the umbrella, towel, and sunhat, of course) while the kids splashed around. I still can't believe that Jack can swim by himself with floaties. He'll be taking swim lessons during preschool this year at the Y. Did I say "preschool"??? Yep, that's a whole other post entirely.
