a wet weekend

 We spent the entire weekend submerged in water...well, I guess I shouldn't say 'we'.  More like the kids.  
Saturday was a pool day and Sunday was a beach day.  It was such a nice relaxing weekend.  
This was a little bit of a change for us.  It seems like the last couple of weekends were spent working on beds, chicken coop, and parties.  Andy did work quite a bit on the coop on Saturday, but for the most part we did have some play time this weekend.  
I actually like working on projects and I'm pretty sure Andy does also, but it sure does feel good to relax a little and spend time together just having fun.  

Yesterday we dusted off the paddle boards and spent almost the entire day at the beach. 
 I am already sore today.  We paddled over to a little playground and the kids played there for about 5 minutes then spent the rest of the time at our stop playing on the paddle boards.  
Ella was getting pretty good at maneuvering around.  It was so cute to hear her offering to take Julian on a ride.  

The second half of our paddle was pretty much straight into the wind.  
Yikes!  I started thinking about what I was going to do if I couldn't make it back.  I think at one point I was actually going backwards, ha, ha.  
The kids were such good sports.  Ella was on my board and Julian was on Andy's.  They were lying down almost the entire time because it was so windy and they were so cold.  Ella didn't complain once even though she was shivering.  
Hot chocolate was well deserved after that.  

 Pruned fingers and toes...I love it.
