The countdown for the first lake weekend has been building for weeks and weeks. And when we realized Ella would still be in a cast we tried to down play it. But the boys were so excited about all the fun. We tried to talk up all the fun E would have fishing and paddle boating but she wasn't buying it. She was NOT happy about this weekend. Especially knowing she was so close to being done with the cast. But we made the best of it. And we're counting down till her first lake visit sans the cast.
