Ending Summer with a Splash

We finally made it to Ross Park this summer. It was the very last day they were open all day long, but still we made it. We had a great time. And don't you think goggles make for the best pictures?

This picture cracks me up! Little sassy pants and her fun loving brother.


After a full day at the swim park, we decided to hit the water again. This time the river, with Grampy's boat.

Brancyn is a little water baby. He wasn't afraid of anything.

The kids all had a great time floating around in their life jackets. They weren't bothered a bit by the nasty river moss algae gunk floating along side them.

Walking on water. There was one high spot on the river that we hit EVERY time the boat got near it. We tried all sorts of different routes, but I swear, the sand bar moved and was determined to take out the bottom of our boat.

And you can't go boating without tubing behind. Such fun! (Even though I never got in the water. I am content as can be just watching everyone.)

When the sun goes down, it's time to go home.

Your day on the water looks amazing! We need to do more things like this. There is a place about an hour away from us where you can float down the river on inner tubes...maybe next summer!

So glad you got one last day of water fun!
Kids and water just seem to go together - I love the 2nd picture it is SO darling and the picture of the kids floating in the algae junk in their life jackets - they were probably so happy at that moment.

Very fun!

How fun.. I still wonder where did summer go? It was just too short. I love the picture of Sassy Pants if she does not look just like someone I know at the same age. I swear her and Callie could be twins.

Okay next year I am a coming and we are boating. Love the sunset photo.
