TUBING

We went over my sister's house today--which is always fun. I tried to take some pictures of the kids jumping into the water but my timing was way off. Although I was very lucky to catch that picture of Edward in mid-air. The kids always at one point or another try to catch a fish--which I am not a really big fan of but we are very lucky that Auntie Lisa doesn't mind. She did succeed in catching one and then immediately placed it back in the water. As soon as JiaLi saw that, she wanted to catch one herself. She had everything ready. One of these days she just might catch one... Later Uncle Mike showed up and so generously spent time with each of the kids letting them have a turn tubing. Mommy even decided to tube. JiaLi is getting much better with babysitters but still in this setting does not like when I go in the boat or distant without her. So with much crying(I won't post those pictures), she hopped into the tube with Mommy. Uncle Mike went nice and easy and she began to see that it's not so bad. Jenise was in charge of the camera at this point. On the ride home, I asked JiaLi her favorite part of the day and she said "tubing".

What a fun time.... glad JiaLi got to go tubing like the big kids...love the "fishing" photo of her. Oh, and go ahead and post the crying ones.....love those kind too. Last time we were on a boat the same thing happened..Annslee was fine with Daddy tubing but when I decided to ski she cried and kept waving for me to get back in the boat (guess I'm her favorite LOL)
