On the days we didn't have the boat, we hung out at the dock. On this particular day Sophie Kate got in the baby pool brought by my sister for baby Olivia. Just as a side note in case you may be wondering, SK is not able to get in lake water because of her feeding tube. So we filled up the baby pool with the water hose so she could stay cool too.
Grey hopped right in with her to help. This boy is on top of things when it comes to his sister. He was not asked to stop swimming or to come over and help, he just does it. It's not only a sweet gesture on his part, it's a part of who he is. He knows when he's needed, he knows when she needs him.
They too have a bond with no need for words.
Sophie Kate, happy in the pool.
Sophie Kate and her cousin Emma Claire, they're rockin' the southern double name thing.
My dad and Chad were able to get Cooper off the tube 2 times this year. I'm not sure if it was the boat driving or just sheer exhaustion that caused him to be thrown from the tube, probably a little of both. This kid hung on like nobody's business, it was quite a task to get him off the tube and in the water.
Not sure what these two are planning and even more sure that I don't want to know...
Remember when I mentioned exhaustion in the last post? Well, this is what it looks like...
Well, it looks like things are going to stretch into a third post. The lake vacation just cannot be contained to only two.
Thanks for checking in on us.
