Swimming at the Lake

We headed up to Grandma's house for the weekend. We haven't had a lot of time up there this summer and my kids were looking forward to some time with cousins and of course doing a lot of swimming.

For Pioneer Day my parent's ward (the ward I grew up in) has a big picnic at the lake. My kids were thrilled that we would be there to go to the Lake for some swimming. It was such a perfectly beautiful day. Warm without being hot and sky was so blue. It was lovely.

 The kids still made a little mud fort on the beach.

 Did a little rock climbing and jumping.

 The picnic spot is on a far spot away from the "beach" area designated for swimming but the kids had a great time in the water among the parked boats and kayak.
 Once the cousins arrived and eveyone had eaten a bit they headed back out to the water.

 Molly spent some time in the water but ended up having more fun playing the stumps like drums and getting into other mischief on the shore. The water was really cold!
 It didn't stop the kids from having the best time out in the water.
Henry particularly loved that someone brought up a large package of water balloons for a fun balloon fight.

After everything was packed up and we were ready to head down the hill the kids all decided they needed to head back to grandma's house for a swim in the pool.

It was in the 90's this weekend so temperatures were just right for all this water play.

That looks so fun. I'm a wee bit jealous.
