Here are some photos from our long weekend in the Poconos. Colin really enjoyed the pool and swimming.
In this photo I am attempting to shelter us from the very hot sun. Katie (and Lauren) didn't seem to mind it. The fact that I am shaded only makes me look more ashen. (I'm actually tan by my own standards, try not to point and laugh)
We spent some time at the lake beach. They were draining the lake to fix the dam at the time. This made the water a little less appealing but it also meant that we had the beach mostly to ourselves. (You might be able to make out Sean in water)
Colin wearing my sunglasses and being a 'Cool Dude!" He refuses to wear his own sunglasses but will happily wear mine.
You will probably notice from this photo that I have returned to pre-pregnancy form. I'm not really happy about this. The crazy appetite I enjoyed while pregnant and bf-eeding is so far gone it has overcorrected in the wrong direction. I'm going to have to start knocking back the ensure shakes again to compensate. I know, I know, I will get no sympathy.
Going for a paddle boat ride, complete with personal flotation devises. (We brought Colin's with us to insure proper fit [read: to appease his mothers paranoia].) Katie and I got to relax while Lauren and Sean provided the foot power.
The overly friendly dear that beg like pigeons. Turns out they like wheat thins. Yeah I know we probably weren't supposed to feed them but come on how often do you get the opportunity to feed wild deer!?!?
Sean and Colin swimming in the lake. Turns out Colin HATES the sand ( I swear to you I was no where near him when we made this discovery so I did not influence it at all) Sean put his feet down and he lost his marbles. It took a lot of coaxing to get him into the lake after that but he warmed up. Good thing we brought the giraffe tent so he didn't have to touch the sand. He was seriously afraid of it coming anywhere near him.
Colin's favorite part of the house we rented was this little indoor wood pile stand. He apparently thought it was the perfect size for him to stand/sit on.
Colin and I on the beach. I'm on a blanket folks don't worry. No chance of me actually laying in contact with the sand. I didn't even want to go in the water for fear of the sand getting stuck to me but I relented in light of the fact that there was no wind to blow it around.
One last shot of my boys looking at something up the beach.
