For the past three weeks we got to house sit for a family in our ward. They have a beautiful house on Lake Meridian and it turned out wonderful that we could "help" them out by enjoying their house and the beautiful view.
While we were there we celebrated Nate's 30th birthday. We had a fun day and had family over for ice cream cake in the evening.
Paige didn't swim very many times in the 3 weeks that we were there. We enjoyed a few swims together as a family but mostly we enjoyed just putting our feet in the water and soaking up the view.
Paige loved being at the house. There was lots of fun things to do.
We got to watch the dragon boat racers practice and one night we even watched swimmers practice for the Lake Meridian Triathlon.
Almost everyday a mama duck with her three babies would come and visit us. We fed them some bread every time they came so that they would keep coming back. It was fun to see them change in the three weeks and they always brought a smile to my face. The babies are so cute and I just wanted to hold one.
We even did some fishing even though we didn't catch anything. Paige is a natural. :)
The second week we were there my mom came to visit for four days. I was sick so that wasn't fun but we had fun visiting and just enjoying each other's company.
My mom even got to enjoy our cute little duck family.
Paige husked corn for the first time and loved helping.
The last night my mom, Paige, and I went for a kayak ride. We went at dusk and it was beautiful and someone fell asleep half way through the ride.
We even had a little play date one day. Paige and Wyatt enjoyed picking the raspberries and blueberries and this is something we did everyday. I love being able to go out and pick some delicious berries.
Paige spent quite a bit of time in this sandbox. It was awesome that it right by the garden so that Paige could just sit there and play while Nate and I watered plants and the garden and did some outside things.
We enjoyed doing some crafts while Nate was at work. Here Paige is working on her Father's Day gift for Nate.
And I took some cute Father's Day photos of the cute little one.
She loved playing with the trains. We all loved staying at the house and enjoyed our time there. Paige even wanted to go back after we moved back home. I will miss the sun going down on the lake and the beautiful view. It was a wonderful three weeks!
