warm kids, cold lake

With Matt on-call tonight, the kids and I decided to spend our evening at the lake.  I'm usually a big fan of the traditional family supper around the table at home, but I took tonight off and we ate fast food in the car (while wearing swimsuits).  It was a beautiful evening with temps in the low 80's, but the water is still shockingly cold.  My brave little swimmers never went in past their middles, but they had a great time splashing and throwing rocks.  We're so thankful for these beautiful summer nights!


I love that sweet, pouty Rachel in the middle!  I helped her get up on the big anchor.  Apparently, she wanted to get up there "all by herself!"
