weekend getaway

Last weekend we escaped the hustle of city life and went to southern Minnesota for some small town relaxing. One of our favorite people in the world Sara invited us to her family's house. We had such fun in the outdoors. We spent some time swimming in a big outdoor pool where Lucy demonstrated her braveness by jumping off the edge into momma's arms. She also did a short back float, lots of kicking, some underwater head dips and participated in a couple wet rounds of ring around the rosie. We dried off and headed to a park by a lake for playing and picnic dinner. Lucy played and played and played. The park was old-school with a merry go round and the old school animal swings (see photos). Lucy fell off the beaver shortly after I snapped the photos. Falling doesn't deter her from re-endangering her self on some other precarious playground equipment. At the end of all that swimming and playing guess who had a hard time falling asleep???? Yup, Lucy.... even my super example of falling asleep with her squirming away did not seem to help encourage slumber in my little 2 year old and once she did fall asleep she was raring to go once again at six in the morning. What's up with that?

Those are great pictures! I love how the park is unique and old, not like the new parks with the plastic equipment that all looks the same
