Stephen's Big Lake Adventure!

Once upon a time it got really really hot!
So, I asked Mommy and Daddy if we could go swimming in the lake.

Lake swimming is just my kind of swimming cuz it's dirty and murky and yucky. 

Mommy saw lots of bugs at the edge of the lake.
She wasn't too thrilled but I thought it was cool!

You know, when you are swimming at the lake you can get away with fun things that parents usually yell at ya for. Like putting muddy sand all over daddy.

Daddy bought be a boat for my lake swimmin' adventures.
Sometimes I just liked to dive right in!
Well, actually, I should tell the truth and the truth is I really didn't like that too much.
But it sounded fun at the time.

'Course there are other things to do at the lake besides just swimming.
Mommy wanted to go on a walk, so being the polite young son that I am,
I went with her. I even took a nap so that she could enjoy her walk longer. 
I am nice like that.

And Sissy brought us yummy food. 
Did you know that you can eat chocolate cupcakes at the lake, even though you aren't supposed to have them at home?

Sometimes Bubba and Sissy argue. Mommy says she's had a rule for a long time that when they argue,
they have to hug and kiss to make up. YUCK! Remind me to never ever argue with Bubba and Sissy!

Maybe someday you can go swimming in the lake too.
It's a great fun adventure!

And you get cupcakes.

Oh Stephen!!! You made my day! What a wonderful post! And you all looked like you had a good time too. Maybe one day I can go swimming in the lake. Maybe my husband will take me an hour and a half away to the nearest one... ;)
