Midway, Part 2

We made another trip up to Midway the last week of August. We were able to celebrate Robyne's and Whitney's birthdays!
I ended up only taking pictures when we were on the boat. We went in the evening, before the sunset, and let me tell you, the lighting was gorgeous! The water felt a bit more chilly, but it was worth it to see that beautiful view!

Shad was back from Europe and happy to be surfing again!

Brett preparing to jump in the cold water!

This girl and her poses. There's MORE of these posed pictures coming your way soon!

I didn't have to give too much tough love to get her in the water. She was actually excited, smiled, and even held on to the rope this time!

Look at that sunlight spreading across those mountains! GORGEOUS! The girl is pretty cute too! ;)

Everybody loves the chance to snuggle with our little bear.

Midway, Part 1

We are so lucky that Brett's parents have a condo in Midway. We LOVE going to "papa's house" (Teagan's words), for the weekend, and do nothing but eat, and play!

And the best part: Midway is right next to Deer Creek, so we get the bonus of going out on the boat too!

I am determined to train my kids to not be afraid of getting in the water. I have forced Teagan to get in each and every time.... even if it made her cry...I call it tough love. :)

But she LOVED the tube, so it didn't take any of the tough love.

We even convinced "mama" (Grandma) to get on the tube with her.

Poor Oz. It's sad that they can't make life jackets a little more comfy for babies.

Whitney killin it on the wakeboard! It was so fun to have her there, even though Shad was still in Europe.

We swung by Strawberry Reservoir for a bit of crawdad fishing. Uncle Dave, Dean's brother, had a blast spending the weekend with us!

The whole family was nice enough to wait for me while I bought a yummy frozen hot chocolate!!

I guess I made them a bit jealous, so the rest of them ordered some milkshakes. :)

Splash pads

I didn't take the kids to the Splash pad until the middle of August. HOW did I forget about Splash pads?! I felt so bad after seeing how much Teagan loves them. 
We ended up going 3 days in a row. First thing in the morning, she would wake up, and put on her swimsuit! That girl cracks me up. 

Teagan is so good at making friends.

It may look warm, but that morning was actually pretty windy, with the coldest water!

You can see their personalities so well in this picture! Oz can't decide if he likes that cold water or not.
