As Brandon was leaving for work the other day he told me "when I get home, I will be on federal rest". For those not in the know, that means he gets 2 mandatory days off due to working a really lot. That is a rare and exciting thing at our house, the time off not the working a really lot. I started thinking "I really hope we get to spend some time around some water during that federal rest!" Well.... The universe heard me! Not long after, the neighbor rang the doorbell to let me know that our water line was leaking. Looked like federal rest would, in fact, let us play in the water, just not how I was hoping. From now on I will be more specific with the Universe.
Luckily, Brandon was able to get it almost all done yesterday and finish it up this morning. So we packed a lunch and headed for some real water to have some fun.
|A water Bug!|
|Turning out to be an awesome swimmer!|
|Playing in the sand makes the Bug very happy.|
|Lunch! Swimming wore him out.|
|Life is no fun unless you get a little muddy sometimes!|
|Captain Jack had a mishap.|
|I looooove flippers!|
|Zach and I swam across and back without life jackets. He did so good.|
We had so much fun playing in the water today! I'm trying to convince Brandon it should be a weekly thing, at the very least!
