Weekend Water Wackiness {with friends}

We have had a water-filled weekend thus far! We started off the weekend at the beloved waterpark with our neighbors and friends. Aarin and Caden are only months apart and they live right next door... they share a fence! Caden always heads to the back of our fence where we share the wrought iron section of the fence and peeks through to see if his buddy is outside! We've gotten to play much more recently now that they are older, running around and interested in having a dude to play with! We are blessed to have a sweet friend right next door! Here is a quick video of the boys playing at the park!

This morning we got up with the sun and headed to the lake with Ava and her rents! The G-Rowes were very sweet to invite us to join them for a morning on the lake. The weather was overcast and it was a bit windy... perfect for boating! Not too hot, not too cold!

This morning we got up with the sun and headed to the lake with Ava and her rents! The G-Rowes were very sweet to invite us to join them for a morning on the lake. The weather was overcast and it was a bit windy... perfect for boating! Not too hot...not too cold!

We weren't quite sure how the kiddos would do... but we decided to brave it and take them with us and see how it went. I must say that we were pleasantly surprised with their lake enthusiasm... they were great! AND Justin and I FINALLY figured out how to make Caden sit still... strap a life jacket on him and put him in a boat! That kid didn't move a muscle! It was hilarious! He HATES his life jacket and who could blame the guy, a pot belly like his doesn't work too well inside a life jacket... kind of like the SNL skit Fat Guy in a Little Coat... but he's not fat of course... just healthy! Really healthy, in fact! :) 

But life jacket aside, I'm not so sure what the Chade thought about the boat. He has been on a boat before but he was about 7 months old... no sure he has much memory of that. He was sure to keep his hand on one of us at all times. Sweet lil man... he will get more comfortable the more we do it... and KK and Albi are going to be helping us achieve that goal this summer! :)

The water was a bit chilly, but the kiddos got in despite the cold... Ava did GREAT! She was super brave and excited about sitting in her inner-tube. Caden... not so much on the tube or anything but Mommy's arms... and you know I did not mind that one bit! Hehe... it's nice to feel needed! 

After some swimming the kiddos and their daddies were hungry so they went up for some snacks and Gina and I did our Mommy thing in the water... talk, talk, talk, talk!

Here are a few videos from our day...

First up... Caden's sunscreen spikey hairdo! Sweet Ava and spunky Miss Gina!



Next up... Ava lovin' life in her tube and Caden and Justin eatin' dude snacks! Caden and Justin have lots of "dude" things they do... dude bath, dude naptime (on weekends), dude bedtime, dude nuggets (chick-fil-a dates), dude runs, dude snacks... pretty much everything they do together ends up becoming dude fill in the black... It can make a Mommy feel pretty left out, but I'm learning to deal... :) 



Second time is a charm, right? Let's try this thing again... Caden you'll LOVE it! 

Or not...poor Ava!



Last but certainly not least... family fun in the water... minus our handsome video man! 



Anyone else enjoying a weekend full of water wackiness?!

So fun! I love the tubing videos! ha. I always loved that as a kid. It is so great that there are a few water parks in the RR/Austin area. Especially geared towards the smaller children. Looks like y'all had fun!
