A Day at Sandy Pond

We spent the day at Mary & Hugh's house on Sandy Pond today. Family, food, sunshine and swimming; an idyllic day.

Click on any picture to enlarge.

Lynn took the kids for rides on Mary’s scooter. You would have thought they were at an amusement park. They fought over whose turn it was and rode around and around.

This picture captures all of their personalities so well. Nikki with her sunny disposition, Mike smiling to show off his missing front teeth, Liz with her hands on her hips and Alex really hamming it up.
My great-nephew, Bob, visiting from Virginia.
My nephew, Frank, brought his dog and let the kids throw a tennis ball into the water for her. I'm not sure who had more fun, the kids or the dog.
Singing Happy Birthday to Great-Grandma. Liz wasn’t letting the ice cream cake out of her sight.
The water is very shallow, it never got over Liz's head. And it was very warm, perfect for me. Nikki wore me out pulling her around on the board.
Liz didn't like the seaweeed, so she played by herself.
Alex never wanted to get out but finally no one would stay in with him. I'd say he had a good time.
This pretty much sums up the day.
