The next morning, we got to work. The kids were so excited and Jake and I were glad to be moving on from the toddler beds and redo their rooms. Little by little, and almost a year later, we are finally done! Next post, their finished rooms!
Big E jumpin'!
The Big Timer takin' his turn
Carter did jump, I just didn't get any pictures of it, but he looks super cute in this one!
Huddy and I got tired of the regular jumping, so we decided to do some flips!
Hud and I rode the wave runner together. He just kept yelling "FASTER! FASTER!", and pushing my thumb down on the throttle, it was hilarious! The other three rode and enjoyed it too, they just enjoyed it much more slowly, ha!
This is our tube we took across the cove, it was a tedious balancing act with eight wiggly kids, but so fun!
This is the roof we were jumping off of. Huddy and Ella were the only two from our crew brave enough to try it! It was HIGH!
This is probably my favorite picture of the day. Let me explain. Poor E had a really tough time jumping off the high dive. She wanted to hold someones hand every time, and we couldn't get her to understand to let go when she got close to the water. She landed on her stomach more times than I can count and her legs were bright red, but she kept at it God love her. One particular time, she was jumping with our friend's daughter. They were holding hands, Ella jumped after Julia and went in head first holding Julia's hand, and landed with her cheek right on top of J's head. There was a lot of crying,and a pretty good shiner for E, but after a promise of some ice for their injuries, they seemed fine. Too bad we didn't have any way to give them ice, so this was the next best thing! Our friend Julie said "If that doesn't say I'm a Barron, I don't know what does!"
