Astrid and I took a little detour towards the lakeside the other day. It was so fabulously perfect! I didn't even know I needed that little bit of true R&R until we splashed in the water. I brought along a Polaroid filled with expired 600 film and shot the entire pack at the lake!
Gracie had a blast, too, although for her to experience the water, Astrid had to pick her up and put her in. It was pretty hilarious to watch Grace paddling her little heart out before she actually hit the water! Mostly, though, she ran loops around us, trying to *not* get in the water!
swimming + self-timer = laughter!
I will have to go with Astrid more often to this little water haven near her home. I keep forgetting how much I love water! I used to live next to the water, but it was so terribly weedy that I never swam in it. I hate it when weeds get caught on my feet or tickle my tummy. I'm very silly that way. ;)
