To the Rescue

Our trip to Coldwater Lake, Michigan has become a yearly tradition.

This year, I felt too hot, too pregnant, and just too crabby to go. Kasey and Andrea had to twist my arm but I finally relented and made the journey. I left John behind for a week with the girls (oh yeah, and the kids went too.)

The week began with a daring water rescue.
Andrea's daughter Anna ventured out on the boat dock while Kasey and I were sunning ourselves.

Then she fell in.
Under the water.

Seriously, it was frightening.
She was struggling *eyes wide open* with her face just under the water.

I ran from across the boat dock, jumped over a lawn chair, plunged into the water, and rescued her. I'm not kidding.

Luckily, Kasey was there to photograph me just after the rescue.

And here is little Anna, thanking me for my efforts.

The rest of the week was less exciting but certainly fun.

And here is my friend Kasey wearing her son Cooper's size 4t shirt.

I think the best part of the week was being 8 months pregnant, 40 pounds heavier than normal, and walking around in a bathing suit next to her. Ha!
It was either that, or singing this song all week . . .

I haven't commented for a while so sorry:( But how thrilling I was on the edge of my seat as I read LOL. You obviously have a new calling as a life guard...this ability must be added to your profile in some way. (Love this post)
