Family Vacation 2013 (Days 2 and 3)

After a nap and lunch we walked down to the lake. They had a few paddle boats to rent. Brooklyn was scared at first. 
She thought the boat was going to sink (for some reason the paddle boat had a hole in the bottom) when Kevin stepped in the boat filled up with water, after he sat down the boat leveled out and the water emptied. 

McKenna was pretty grumpy because of the life jacket she had to wear. She refused to look at the camera or talk to anyone until that life jacket was off!

A bit happier. 
(don't worry we only took her life jacket off once we were back at the dock)

Swimming in the lake.
 This was a HUGE milestone for Brooklyn!! All summer we have been working on her fear of water. Finally we were able to get her into something bigger than the kiddie pool. She was so happy swimming around and I and extremely proud of her!!!

While we were swimming it started to sprinkle, so we headed back to our tent before the rain got too bad.

The rain!!

It continued to rain all afternoon and into the night so we just entertained ourselves in the tent. 
With a little ingenuity we were able to make smores. The chocolate was melted just enough for it to work!

The next morning we slept in, the rain cooled it off and made sleeping much easier, then packed up before it got too hot.

Since we still had a few hours until nap time (Kevin and I always try to do our driving while the girls are sleeping) we took the girls to the park and after had a picnic lunch outside.


Kenna was cracking everyone up! She would take the hat off say "cheese" then cover her face really fast!

Finally two smiling faces! I love these girls so much!
