Family Day

Jesse suggested a family walk and a swim in the lake this morning and boy am I glad we went!  Absolutely lovely 4.5 mile loop trail called the Iron Hill Trail.  Totally in the shade the whole way, slathered with moss on all sides, and around the lake a lot of the way so you can see the water, which was perfectly clear and emerald green.
Now I wish I had taken a few shots of the trail on the way because it was really a treat to walk on.
The girls are basically fearless when it comes to the water, which could be a bad thing, but I don't worry when Jesse is so close by.
Silly and sweet, sweet and silly.  They take turns. :)
And the very best part of the day...Daddy had to take Lilah for her very first dip in the lake.  With him as her Daddy, it will be the very first of many.  But I think it is supercool that we got the moment "on film."  The older girls were both about 2 their first time on the boat, so it won't be long before she is joining them on their fishing excursions.

We all had a great time and by the time we got back to the Jeep the girls were completely pooped.  They are sacked out watching a movie and eating popcorn right now, I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't both sound asleep in the next half hour.

On the drive home Jesse said, "We should make this a Saturday morning tradition."  ♥♥♥  He's the best.

The summer is winding down, school has started, and in the mornings there is the teeny-tiniest breath of Fall.  We all look forward to the weather breaking in the deep South, but after today, I do wish we had another month of Summer to enjoy a new found Saturday morning tradition.  Maybe we can squeeze it in again a couple more times before it gets chilly.

Hope your Saturday's been full of family and fun!
