Turtle Races!!

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.

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.

Ella’s Monday Fun

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.
