A Day On the Lake

The Sevin Family gets to spend a lot of time at the lake, but it is rare that we are able to spend a day on the lake.  A friend invited our family and another family to join him on his boat for a day last week.  we eagerly accepted the invitation!  It was cool, but sunny and absolutely beautiful!

All the kids took turns driving the boat.  Cameron looks like a pro, doesn't he?

Olivia spent a lot of time snuggling her "Moma" (that's what it sounds like now when she says my name and I think it is soooooo adorable!)  It was chilly.  I didn't take my sweater off except once to jump in the lake.

As I said, it was chilly, but that did not stop us from finding a quiet little cove to do some swimming.  I have observed my kids at lots of lakes and pools and I have noticed something.  They take swim lessons at a lake, therefore they are VERY comfortable swimming in a lake.  They are over their heads with life jackets, but at ease.  When they are in a pool they behave completely different.  Very unsure.  The funny thing is that I have talked to other parents who do swim lessons at pools and their kids swim without any help from a floatation, but are very fearful of swimming in a lake.  So weird!

And here is sweet little photogenic Olivia at her best!
We had so much fun and cannot wait to do it again!  I love friends, and if you have a boat, I love you even more (haha!)


  1. Great pictures! We get to spend time on a boat usually once a summer when we go camping with the family. I love it!! Glad you had fun :)

  2. Having a lake close by is so wonderful. Looks like you guys had a blast.
