Splish Splash

Let's continue down memory lane. Day two of our Idaho adventure was spent lake side. Logan still didn't want to be with others so we spent part of the morning walking down to the dock. The great news was that Kyle had recovered from his food poisoning!

Trying to skip stones like daddy.

We spent the afternoon at Aunt Deneen and Roger's beach. They bought a lake house a few years back and are slowly fixing it up. It is just down the road from Grandma Betty and Grandpa Dewey's cabin. It has a wonderful beach! Perfect for learning to play in the lake.

The other boys have no water issues. They would run and jump in the lake over and over again. Sadly we couldn't get Logan even remotely interested in trying that. He really hates having water in his face.

So, castle building it was.

Even though Logan couldn't get over his grumpy behavior towards the boys, they did eventual make sand castles together. Although Logan did have a tendency to want to destroy what others built.

The next day I succumbed to Reece's request for the scavenger hunt. I had mentioned it when we arrived and he was so excited to give it a try. I took egg cartons and painted each section a different color. The goal was to find something outside that matched each color. The dads got involved and the boys seemed to have a great time.

Each boy received a balsa wood plane after the hunt. I was so excited when I saw those planes in the store, but sadly they were duds. They just wouldn't fly. Luckily we had lots of paper and Kyle went to town making paper airplanes. Of course Logan didn't want to do planes with the other boys so there he goes.

He was happier by himself on the tire swing.

Meanwhile, inside some lucky people were playing cards. This family loves to play cards and games. You can almost always find a game of some sort going on.

The rest of the boys were going to bed so Logan was hanging out the adults while we enjoyed a little card game of our own. As usual, we let him play with the iPad as a distraction. Here he is showing Grandpa Dewey how to play a word game.

Logan does love Katie. Unless she is barking. Here they are checking out the noises of the night through the screen door.

My time is getting short. I have one more post to write about Idaho and close out July. However, packers show up in two days and we move up to Los Alamos on Friday. Crossing my fingers that I find some time between cleaning and organizing to get that last post up.
