Recently we went to Cascade Lake a local swimming hole:-) It is about 30 minutes from the house on some nice scenic back roads. There are many slides and platforms built for sliding and jumping in the lake, there are paddle boats and trails too. It is a quiet place to go not crowded, good for a relaxing time to play.
going down the big slide was a lot of fun, Grace must have done this 100 times she is so full of energy:-)
building in the sandy beach is fun. This is Shawn's favorite thing to do. He did like this water though it is much calmer then the ocean and not so scary he could just sit and let his feet get wet and work up to other parts of his body:-)
this is my step dad jumping off the platform this just cracks me up. When he went out the teens on it asked if he was sure he wanted to do this- I think they thought he was a little nuts:-)He said it was a lot of fun he did it twice:-)
swimming in the lake was refreshing. we had a few fishes nibble on our toes:-)
stopping from all the fun for a brief snack. all the exercise builds up appetites
It was a fun day at the lake it rained on us a bit but it was brief and quick and we where wet anyhow. after snacks we walked around the lake and saw some turtles floating in the water and talked to some ladies fishing it was fun.
