I sat with her and then she sat on my lap. All that accomplished was the tub tipped forward, almost knocking us out and getting us soaked.. To make a long story short, if you layed on your stomach it wouldn't tip. BUT then she would have to do it alone which totally wasn't happening..
Of course Kenna wanted a turn so they both sat on my lap while Tim pulled the boat at 3 miles an hour. They thought it was a BLAST!
Later Tim and Kenna did the paddle boats.. I thought poor Kenna was going to sink. Between her and Tim there is a little bit of a weight difference ;)
Later we had races Tim and Kinz against Kenna and I...... Needless to say Kenna and I weren't on the winning team.. I am pretty sure Tim gave us the broken paddle boat that didn't steer.. For a while I thought we were going to go over the falls..
Then this morning we were awaken to knocking on the door, her two little friends were wanting her to come swim. AT 8:00 AM!
Two summers ago one of Tim's best friends bought Big Pine Camp, another resort on the same lake as Arrowhead. I think it's so cool the only 2 resorts on this lake are both owned by our friends and family. Last night we took the boat over and had a BBQ. Neil's brother, Chris (baby Emily's Dad) and his wife came as well as Neil's in-laws. They also had some guests that had 2 babies under 12 months and a little boy who will turn 4 in Aug. Within minutes of us getting there, he and Kinz were fast friends. By the end of the night the mom was asking if we would come back and play before they left on Thursday! At one point the little guy's Grandpa came out of the cabin laughing saying they were curled up on the couch watching a movie.. I think he got a BIG kick out his grandson having a crush on Kinzley.

Kinzley decided to 'model' for me a little. The only reason being it was a Sat. and all her friends left and the new ones had yet to come in.

Kenna was playing peek-a-boo with Grandma behind the laundry room door and I got these shots. She can be such a ham when she wants to take pictures.
Nothing like a little small aleck!
I didn't get any pictures of Kinzley because she was much to busy doing this........
She SOOOO didn't get why they wanted to lay in the sun.........Not at all......

Of course everyone loves a camera so it wasn't to long until they hit me up to take some pictures.. They did pretty darn good..
They found out quickly how frustrating it is to get Kenna to look at the camera. There are SO many times I wish I could do the same thing!
When she did decide to cooperate I got this big old cheesy grin!
Playing with a worm.... Do we ever have some tomgirls!!!

This one cracked me up!!
Kenna wouldn't let me bury her for fear she might get dirty... She wasn't in the mood for pictures so this is all I got for her..

In my defense they were clean, hair curled (well Kinzley, not everyone is blessed with the beautiful curls Kenna has, which I am sure she will HATE later in life and wish for stick straight hair) ok so clean, curled and dressed. Getting them ready is half the battle so I wasn't missing this opportunity.
Out they went.... I should mention my poor husband is sitting in the car sweating, waiting patiently.. He's the best!
This first one is one of my favorites I have taken on Kinz in a long time.. I need to go buy some new frames because this one is going on my wall for sure..
I love how photos capture personalities. Kinz has that perfect tilt of the head, mega watt smile and sparkle in her eye. The wedding photographer was so impressed with how well looked at the camera and smiled with no prompting.
She told her "My mom takes my picture A LOT"
Speaking of personality.. Kenna was also captured to a 'T'
She just can't help it. She is such an ornery little thing!

A little later I caught a perch. Which Kinzley named Wally. Kenna couldn't say Wally so she called him Waldy, much to Kinz's dismay. Tim filled the live well with water so we could save it to entertain the girls and buy us some more fish time. We were laughing that we bet that poor perch sure wishes he wouldn't have bitten that lure.. Talk about tortue..
Kinzley was all excited that she could reach into the livewell and pull it out by it's tail.. Kenna on the other hand finally got brave enough to 'pet 'im"
They played with Waldy/Wally for at least an hour before we threw him back.
I can bet he won't be biting a fluffy pink princess lure again any time soon.
