Lake Mystic

Our 3rd of the July celebration was definitely a full one!  We spent most of the day out at the lake swimming, surrounded by family and friends.

We were very proud of Mandy and Dallin for getting over some of their fear of deep water.  Up until this day, they completely refused to go out in water over their heads even with a swim ring or life jacket.  But, this time, they saw their cousins having so much fun out there that they strapped on a life jacket and went out to enjoy the fun too!

They played so hard and had so much fun that after a while, Layton crawled up into my lap and passed out.

While he was out, the other kids went out for a paddle boat ride.

It was an awesome day!  I couldn’t believe how nice the weather was.  I mean it was July.  In Florida.  And I didn’t even sweat.  Can you believe that?  It was nothing short of a miracle!  Thank you Copelands for letting us come over that day!  We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

It looks like a blast! I love all the pictures, especially with you and Layton. Nothing better than snuggling a baby to sleep. :)
