Memorial Day

On Sunday night we drove to East Texas for a spontaneous, less than 24 hour, trip. We had a great time and got to see both my family and Chris'. Otto got to swim for the first time and Chris got to experience 'The Cliffs'. Although he is still suffering from the sunburn, he had a fantastic time.

It took Otto about three seconds to realize the pool was AWESOME! He absolutely loved it. 
Look at his face, he was a very happy camper! We actually went swimming twice that afternoon because he enjoyed it so much.

His super happy cheese face:) This is my new favorite picture.
He really took off, Chris had a hard time holding him. The child had no fear, and was using both his arms and legs to crawl though the water. We have got to get this boy in swimming lessons, he will love them.

Addison also got to swim, but she was very polite about it. I think she thought that Otto was a little crazy:) Isn't her little pony tail adorable?
After swimming (the first time), while Otto was napping, we went to the Cliffs. Just a few miles from my parents house there is an old rock quarry that has flooded and has become the new hang out spot. There are several places to jump from the walls into the water, the largest jump being about fifty feet. It's insane, I was nervous the entire time we were there that some one was going to get hurt, the place is an accident waiting to happen!

Chris about to jump!
In he goes!
Seriously crazy! I did not jump.

We came home Monday night, tired and sunburned, but we had a great time. Otto has been napping wonderfully since our trip and slept better last night than he has in a while! We definitely need to go swimming on a regular bases if only to get a decent nights sleep!
