Water Baby

One thing I have learned about my girl? She loves the water. LOVES it.

So we've been spending a LOT of time at the lake this summer!

And I have 2 cute picture stories to share with y'all...

The first happened this past weekend at Hayden.

Miss Lucy decided she didn't think I should be allowed to Jet-Ski on my own or try to leave the premises of the swimming area...

So I was forced to pull her up with me and take her for a little ride

Now, I don't think I can say she "liked" it, but she did surprisingly well!

No scratching or trying to escape (probably because she was frozen in terror)...

And once I got her back on the dock and had Pia hold her collar, I was able to drive away! :)


I mentioned this in my Camp wrap-up post, but Lulu has a new, absolutely adorable trick:

The Lifeguard Rescue

She swims up to the "drowning swimmer" (preferably me or Curtis, she may or may not let the rest of you live),
Grabs the lifeguard tube by its tow strap,
And swims you all the way to shore!
And she's not stopping until she gets you on the beach.

Honestly? Cutest thing I've ever seen in my life.

Step 1: the "Catch"

Step 2: Starting swimming (notice the fierce look of determination)

Step 3: Cross over any and all obstacles in the way

Step 4: Bask in the glory of yet another successful rescue.

Impressive! I love the look on her face while she is towing you to shore. Lulu, I hope you would rescue Grammy if she needed saving. You would, wouldn't you?

I do love when she does the lifeguard rescue. That girl is ALL business when it comes to a tube save!
