We spent a day at Lake Cocolalla with my cousin and her daughter. I love these kind of beach days! We have so much fun and it's pretty easy to get out there! We loved playing in the water, paddle boarding and riding the sea doo. I love chit chatting with Jonica and Georgia and Maeve gets loved on. Holly and Greta tasted oreos and tried to guess the flavor. They enjoyed that game lots! 

This day totally wiped Greta out (she's still recovering from having her tonsils and adenoids removed), but I think it was worth it. 

Now I'm just really hoping the smoke goes away so we can wrap up summer with oomph! 

We try to bike to church and this past Sunday wasn't the first time Maeve has fallen asleep on the bike ride home. It makes me laugh to see her head nodding below me as we cruise down Manito Boulevard. Maeve remained asleep through her diaper change and transferred easily into bed! Nursery and 11am-2pm church really knocks this girl out!

I wanted to take some pictures of Maeve in this cute new dress before we left for church but she was NOT having it! So if this is as good as it gets, that's okay, because she's so stinking cute!

Our local ice cream shop sells cute little baby cones and we finally made our way over there last week. Watching Maeve eat that cone was adorable! I love having a baby again with all these fun firsts to revisit! And the picture of all three of my girls, all the heart eyes. 

A pool day with a whole whack load of friends can't be anything but awesome! Maeve took a nap in the morning and was able to join us for some swimming in the afternoon. Maeve is doing so well in the water. She was swimming herself around in her puddle jumper without me touching her at all! When the puddle jumper tips her onto her back then she freaks, but overall this girl is so fearless in the water! She will jump in off the edge of the pool no problem! There was one little issue of when she almost drove herself in a little play car into the pool. It was a pretty dramatic save! I grabbed the car and the door facing the pool opened and Maeve managed to not fall in by clinging to the steering wheel! Nothing like a little excitement!

I really love swimming in a cold river on a hot day. I kind of like that shock to the body! This is such a good little spot to swim and it's deep enough to jump in. I was SO proud of my brave girl Holly for giving it a go! She jumped in once and then did it again immediately. And then went another time before we left! I also want to remember how generous and kind my children were on this day. They are great kids!
