And that’s in addition to an almost 3 hour layover. Fun! Or not!!
Abby kept going back to look at the pictures Lee has up of her grandkids making rolls. So great grandma Lee made some dough for Ella and Abby to make cinnamon rolls.
We headed out to the Thursday morning tutle races in Battle Lake today. The winner of the finals wins an ice crea cone from Granny’s pantry. Here is the “pool” of contenders.
Here is Ella and Grandma Dot with Ella’s pick
And here is Ella and Abby with Abby’s pick.
Unfortunately neither of turtles won our heat, but we still treat ourselves to a trip to Granny’s pantry. The girls chose to pick out some candy instead of having an ice cream.
Abby found her first boat ride wildly exciting …
But Ella had a lot of fun driving the boat.
Abby is not as sure about playing on the beach. I’m not sure she likes how the sand shifts under feet. But she usually warms up to it after a while and then has a blast getting water and making wet sand. The lake water is too cold for her to do much swimming.
Here she is enjoying a snack while we watch Ella play.
Ella loves, loves to play on the beach and go swimming. We found some kickboards which she is getting really good at using. She also likes to roll around in the sand which seems weird for her considering she is usually OCD about getting anything on her hands.
Ella also went on a jet ski ride …
No, she didn’t drive go by herself. Great Aunt Deb went too.
Didn’t work out so well …
