Big Bear

Yesterday we spent a fun-filled day up in the mountains at Big Bear. My brother-in-law Bryan's family owns this cabin. And they invited all the Suman side to come play.
We spent the day hanging out:
looking at pretty water:wearing pageboy caps:
climbing on the rail:playing in the grass:
sitting on Papa's lap:playing with our other best friends (next to crayons and people), plastic animals:
We danced in our swimming suits:
we put on life vests:
so we could ride the wave-runner:
or play in the tube:
And Casey and Meredith learned to wind-surf:
It looked super hard but Casey stayed at it for a good hour and 1/2:
Whoooooa. Steady, steady:
Excellent skills:
Everyone played in the water, even dogs:
We relaxed in the sun:We took care of kids:
carried purses:and had a yummy bbq:
And when dusk rolled around, time for puzzles:
casting a line:
and hanging out with cousins. Makenna's expression is brilliant. If only I had a shot of Lucy on the other side yelling "Makenna! Owen! Cheese! Cheese!" She's learned from her shameless parents how to get a baby to smile.
Camille and Bryan, thanks for inviting us! We had a really great time. We're glad we came!

What a fun day. I grew up going to Big Bear a lot as a kid for weekends. It is so nice up there. It is really close to Lake Gregory too, I can't wait for our family weekend too. Props to Casey for wind surfing, it looks hard!

Looks like a really fun time! My favorite picture is of Lucy dancing in her swimming suit. I'm glad Dad was able to get some fishing in. I know he loves that.
