Lake Cabin

July 16, 2010

Yesterday we took a day trip to the Welle family lake cabin in northern Minnesota.

Lake Cabin 038

The water was cold.

We discussed swimming…

Lake Cabin 059

And then some crazy people jumped right in!  Ok, actually everyone jumped in except for me.

Isaac did not enjoy the cold lake water.  He clung to Jamie, tried to pull his little legs up out of the water, and cried!

We’d also gone swimming at the pool the day before.  That was too cold too.  Look how miserable he is!

Isaac got out of the lake, took off his wet swimming diaper, and then had a good old time crawling around on the dock.  He thought it looked like it would be fun to crawl right over the side of the dock and back into the lake…

I had to tether him down by the ankle.  See how he is trying to shake off my grip so he can go diving?  Good luck little boy!

Why are you holding me back, mother?

We got to meet Emily’s boyfriend, Jack.

Spot watched the swimmers and barked about it.

Later on, Isaac practiced standing up around the cabin.  Look how nonchalant he is with his one-handed grip!

    Isaac is going to have FUN in the warm water of N. Carolina! Can’t wait!

    Jamie’s folks’ dogs are so beautiful. Matthew had a stuffed bernese mountain dog as his very special, carry-with-me-everywhere friend when he was a little boy. John’s sister sent it to him because we all spent time growing up in Switzerland.

    Have a great time with Jamie’s family. Looking forward to having you with us, too.

    Borrowed the pack ‘n play for Jennifer’s house today!
