Off to the Swimmin' Hole!

Tuesday afternoon Christina and I decided to leave the babies at home with the daddies and take the older kids off to Burger's Lake here in Fort Worth. Besides Hannah and Daddy had already been back in May with Ricky's school so it was my turn!

The kids knew we were going to a lake. But they had no idea how fun this "lake" would be. It is NO lake! But an old fashion swimmin' hole complete with diving boards, slides, and fountains. It is just the perfect size for everyone to go off and do their own thing, but still keep an eye on all of them.

Of course, the boys headed straight to the high dives. They spent the whole afternoon jumping from place to place. Hayden was doing all kinds of flips and Sky did his best to keep up! They even tried their hand at the swing. Sky had a little trouble reaching it and had to have help from a kind stranger in line. He aleady told me that when they come back again he will be able to do it on his own!

Myra and Kenzie had a good time floating around with Aunt Chris. Chris had a good time pushing Kenzie in front of the spraying fountain which was ICE cold. She must have liked it because she kept "going back more" according to Chris.

Towards the end of the afternoon we headed over to the "baby" board as they called it. Myra even jumped off of it!

On the way home the kids were exhausted, but they couldn't stop talking about all of the fun they had at "Burgers Lake" and started reliving every jump, flip, and dive!

They are already planning their next visit! Can't wait. Maybe Hannah can go next time!!!
