Memorial Day Weekend Part Two

Sunday was another relaxing day at the farm.  We woke up, ate breakfast, played outside for a little bit, and then lathered up in sun screen and hit the pool!


If I learned one thing this weekend, it is that Ellie is a fish.  Ya'll, she swam for FOUR hours our first day, and then cried when we went inside.  I told her that she was little fish, and she said, "No.  I not a fish.  I a mermaid." Ha!!


Eli likes the water too, but he has a healthy respect for it.  I feel like we spent a great deal of time convincing him that the can swim, and then all of a sudden he believes us, loses the swimmies, and takes off across the pool. 


Eric joined us for some fun, but the water was too cold.  The boys ended up bailing, but Ellie and I stayed outside working on our tans…you know while we were wearing SPF 50!


I have never worn sunscreen and hardly ever burn, but recently I have developed an awareness of sun safety, so I made sure to wear sunscreen and reapply throughout the day.  I barely got a tan, but safety first.  Right?


A storm started blowing in late in the afternoon, so we used it as an excuse to head inside for showers.  By this time. Eric's uncle had arrived with the kids, so Eli was chopping at the bit to go see then. 



We drove to the "home-place" (next door) where Eric and Colby lead the kids in a competitive game of baseball while we waited for dinner to be ready. 


They even mowed themselves a little ball field complete with baselines.  Ha!


We had an amazing dinner, and I do mean amazing!!!  Then the kids wanted to go swim, so we took them back to the pool. 


By this point, it was way too cold for me to get in, but it didn't seem to deter the little ones. 


It was the perfect way to round out the evening, and the view wasn't so bad either.
