My Aunt Kay lives right on the river and she pulled out her kayaks and let the older boys kayak down the river
And they're off!
The rest of us gave the boys a head start and then we drove down to the place where we could meet up with them and swim around in the river. Even though it was still August, it was barely 70 degrees that day. So yeah, it was COLD! I don't think I would have normally gotten in the water, but after spending the summer in hot HOT Texas, I'd been craving any kind of cold and so I thought I would try to get my fill of it before having to come back.
The boys met up with us and Steve refused to get in the water and swim with me! Too cold for him. So the three of them skipped rocks for seriously an hour! They loved it :)
Look at these guys! What a cute family :)
We came home and Aunt Kay made us hot chocolate to warm us up before dinner. yum! Everyone had chills from the cold water.
At the dinner table. We made Steve's favorite: lasagne! Aunt Kay made bread and a salad.
She also made Steve's bday cake: lemon meringue pie, which is also his favorite and a chocolate cake:
Us being silly!
And then afterwards we came out and skipped rocks..again!
Then we had to say goodbye :( Thanks Aunt Kay for making Steve's bday a special one!
