Crashing the Party--Part Two (the lake)

No Corry lake gathering (or Cantwell lake gathering, come to think of it) would be complete without a session of skipping rocks.

I like this picture so much that we have it on our wall.

Picking up seashells, while not a hard and fast family tradition, always adds to the experience.

. . . and, should you find a prime stick while looking for seashells?  Well, so much the better!

This is Eliza.  At about 9 months older than Heather, I've found her example to be an extremely helpful motivator.  Why, just a few days ago I persuaded Heather to let me wash her hair in the bathtub without any tears or whimpering because, "That's how Eliza does it".  (Which feat we witnessed first-hand while we were in Bear Lake.)

Worked like a charm.




Of course, to look at this, you'd assume that this girl does absolutely no whimpering or crying whatsoever, right?

(Wrong.)

(But, it's a small price to pay for all this joy, and a nearly limitless supply of such smiles.)
