Our Trip Down South...(Part I):

We took Eloise to South Carolina to visit with Nana, Dad (who was also visiting) & our family. We had a wonderful time. In fact, I miss Nana & the lake already...

While we were there, we thought we would help Eloise like water. We bought her a wading pool, had a vast lake for her to explore (although I was not too keen on that idea) & had some boating planned for her. In order for her to go boating, she needed a life vest. I found this one on clearance at Target - how awesome is it??

Then her Daddy took her for a toes dip in the lake. She was less than thrilled by this.


So he tried the wading pool...again, much less than thrilled. But isn't her swimming suit cute? More pictures coming soon...

Garrett use to HATE being in the water too. It lasted a couple summers...I have funny pictures of him sitting on the outside of the little pool while Kylee & Maddy are happily playing in the water. Little Ella did look awfully cute not liking the water too! :)

Maybe it's a first born thing? Because we're control freaks? Or maybe only first borns born to first borns?

E didn't like the water either really until last year. He was happy to sit on the edge or just throw things into the water, LOL.

I love her faces though ... oh the torture!! The one of Tim laughing with her is too funny!

Welcome home!

Too cute! :0) Love the ones of her "loving" the water! :)

It's not a first born thing, I loved the water from the get go. Keep trying, she might change her mind. At any rate, the pics are too cute!
