Lilly Pad Fun...

....at Lake Hawkins this weekend. This was how we enjoyed our Sunday afternoon...the kids had a blast, they really love going swimming at the lake. Mommy got a terrible sunburn...the first time I have FRIED myself since Sterling and I have been together!!...I usually don't wear a bathing suit to the lake, I just do the T-Shirt and shorts thing...but I was feeling frisky and decided to wear proper swimming attire, and look where it got me! A week of spraying Dermaplast on myself every 4 hours!! I wanted to take more pictures, but the camera battery died....this is nothing new...everytime I manage to remember my camera, I forget to charge the battery...story of my life...never, ever FULLY prepared!...lol It was an eventful afternoon...Sterling found a perfectly good sunbrella that someone tossed in a trash barrel...of course he had to rescue it....right along with a man that drowned. Thank goodness Sterling knew CPR! Apparently nobody that the gentleman was with knew how to administer CPR....the good news is, Sterling was able to revive him. We found out after the fact that the CPR Certification guidelines have changed in the last 15 years since we had classes...So I encourage anyone who reads this to go and get re-certified if you haven't already!! Because you just never know when you may need to use CPR!!! The incident brought our day of swimmimg fun to a sreeching halt, but it is ok, we just pray that the gentleman makes a speedy recovery. And it's not everyday that a 2 year old and 4 year old get to witness their father save a life, not to mention a wife witnessing her husband save a life. The part that chokes me up is.... when we got home, Emily walked up to Sterling out of nowhere and said "Thank you for saving that mans life, Daddy."
