We got to spend a day of Greysen's birthday week at Lake Chelan.
This was the first time that we had gone to the lake for the purpose of swimming since we moved here.
We are still learning the best places to go so we went to this park that we had gone to with the Dame's for thier daughters birthday.
What we didn't know was that there was no beach at this park, just a 10 foot retaining wall that you have to jump off of directly into the icy cold waters!
We had fun though once we all got over the freezing adjustment.
Here Grey and I are after we took our swim and were soaking up the sun.
(Through SPF 50 of course!)
Zoe swam all over the place.
Tate found a big stick shaped like a gun.
Here Grey and I are on our swim. He really did have fun despite his expression.
The kids got to feed a duck.
And Ben got to snorkel.
Later that night the kids hung out with the Dames kids and had a sitter while Ben and I played with Haley and Jon.
We rented paddle board which neither of us had done before but was so much fun.
Ben and I shared one. First he stood and paddled while I rode on the front. Ben doesn't have great balance so the board was shaking. I kept reminding him to have "grounded feet" which was something we used to say in dance to help us balance. This reminded him of the Friends episode where Ross kept saying "Pivot! Pivot!" Which made him laugh so he shook even more and then he tipped us. Then I took over paddling and we got the hang of it. Later he had another turn and did a great job. It was so much fun.
