Even Better than Beauty

Enjoying beauty with friends takes the cake!!

Madison and Micah were busy rescuing all the waterlogged insects. They accumulated quite a stash :-)
Brock and Paul relaxing with their little girls :-)
On our last visit here we were wishing for supplies to make a raft. This time we brought them! The kids were very busy making their raft and anticipating an enjoyable journey floating around the lake. Their strategy wasn't working too well so Brock gladly stepped in to show them how it is done :-)

"Look at this Micah - we're floating!!"
Madison and Micah had a little mishap later on. They were out pretty deep and somehow fell off. They were both scared and almost panicked but quickly remembered their swimming lessons and started swimming. It was cute to see how well they did and even cuter to hear them talk about it the entire way down the mountain. They were pretty sure that they were close to drowning, told how they did a sommersault and flip underwater as they fell off, and both agreed it was one of the scariest things they had experienced. They were both quite baffled that we all just sat there and watched them :-) We assured them we would have come out if they needed it but because they both did AWESOME we didn't need to rescue them :-)

Aaron and Isaac's raft was a great success! Isaac was a bit nervous going very far out but Aaron put it to the test - Yep, it floats well!
Madison, Micah and Aaron
The guys thoroughly enjoyed the rope swing and I had a blast capturing picture after picture.

Micah, Madison, Hannah and Anna
Anna was a little hesitant of the water so spent most of her time on the shore. Hannah likes the water but also loves to wrap up in her towel, whether she needs it or not.
