More Lake Fun

Two weekends ago, our house went on the market and our realtor wanted to hit the ground running. He scheduled two open houses and five viewings for the first few days. We knew it would be impossible to keep the house clean and keep naps and feedings on schedule for all that, so we packed up and headed to the lake.

The first day we were there, it was a little cloudy and drizzling off and on so we went to the pool, which is partially covered. Paxton loooooves the water. This was the first time he jumped off the side all by himself. He loved it and kept jumping (belly flopping) over and over.

He loves going under so he always loves when Daddy throws him.

Just from the two hours we spent at the pool, his water confidence increased so much! By the time we were getting ready to leave, he could jump off the step and turn around and swim back to the step without help. I'm so impressed with how far he has come this summer with his water skills! The first time we got in our pool, he would just kind of walk around and panic a little if he tripped (even though he had floaties on). Now he can kick his feet and move, put his face in and blow bubbles and even flip around and float on his back. It has been awesome to watch his water confidence grow and his desire to be in the water 24/7 increase!

That evening, we went out on the boat before dinner.

Porter likes the boat pretty well, too. He is usually so chill when he's on it.

That night, my family came down to hang out. We went back on the lake in the morning and Pax was literally in the water all day. He wouldn't even get on the boat to eat or get a drink!

By the end of the day, he was exhausted! It was a fun trip and so nice to just get away from all the house showings and the cleaning.
