Jus Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming...

About a month ago we had our 2nd annual Willard Bay Fergy clan beach frenzy. We all gather together and spend the day swimming, playing and eating with our families. Phoebe was in heaven she is our natural water bug and only spent very few minutes out of the water the entire day. Josh our overly "cautious" child tried out the water here and there but instead chose to spend most of the day eating EVERYTHING & playing in the sand instead. Miss Sophie had mixed feelings on the whole day, but pretty much stayed happy as long and she was n-e-v-e-r put down or let go of .
Cami was lovin' this day she loved the freedom to swim around freely with her new life jacket on and she LOVED that Megan and Uncle Blake brought their canoe and took several little exertions out, which she managed to get to go on every time.
Towards the end of the day Cory and I took the kids out just as our little family and paddled around the bay.  We got to see several herons and I tried explaining that in Oregon they are blue in color, but Phoebe remained unimpressed and said she would prefer them if hey were rainbow colored.
This was a petty fun day in which for the most part I managed to avoid major sunburn which is always a plus for me. We even saw 2 other churches doing their variation of baptisms in the lake while we were swimming around so it was quite spiritual as we all sun bathed & lounged the day away. We are definitely all looking forward to the 3rd annual trip next year!
