Tuesday we actually split part of the day from the group and hung out with my brother and his family. His in-laws live in the area and have some jet-skis and were nice enough to take us all up to Pineview Lake for a fun day of swimming, beach playing and jet-skiing.
My kids kept asking where the waves where and they thought it was funny that they could see the end of the water. We had to explain several times, this was a lake not the ocean. Alex and Kensington had so much fun just floating around in the water. We kept having to call after them to come back closer to the shore.
Lucas liked the jet-skis as long as they were going pretty slow. Alex was more brave and Ryder didn't want to ride them at all. In fact he didn't even go into the water until the very end.
We had to hurry back for our Christmas in July (see totally works that I am doing these posts now). My MIL had the table decorated all Christmasy and the kids ate their Christmas meal of ham, rolls and green beans. Then we sent them all down to watch a Christmas movie while the grown ups had King Crab legs. It was awesome!
