Remember the post from last year about swimming in our duckweed-covered pond? Well, it’s swimming season again and “our pool is open!” XD It’s a rather greenish pool, but hey, it’s water, right?
One Sunday evening a couple of weeks ago, we all went down to the dock and my siblings went swimming and canoeing. Sort of. I stayed on dry land and took photos instead, heh heh. I managed to capture quite a lot of amusing action shots and funny expressions, which I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
Ready? Set? Go!
My three youngest siblings went down first to “break the ice.” I mean the duckweed. I love how lush and green this setting is, don’t you? So prettyyyy!
This is a lush green I’m not so happy about. Maggie didn’t seem to mind the duckweed, though!
She’s so funny – she LOVES water, but she won’t wade any deeper than she can reach. She can swim, she just hates doing it for some reason. Strange, since she’s a labrador retriever.
The day before, my siblings and some friends came up with the marvelous game of paddling the canoe out to the middle of the pond, standing up, and….
TIPPING OVER! :’D
I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks extremely fun.
We can all swim, but we almost always use pool noodles in the pond because the bottom is all muddy gross and it’s exhausting to swim without touching the whole time you’re in the water.
HAHA. XD I think Jeff was trying to balance on the canoe underwater. Good thing it floats back to the top!
Oh my goodness, this one almost makes me laugh!
SO DOES THIS ONE. Megan’s expression…
I like how sharp and clear the waves are in this photo!
My other brother, Logan, eventually came down, and my parents shortly after him. The question is, do you jump in first, or get in the canoe?
Canoe it is. HAHA, this is a great picture, if I do say so myself! 😀
We lost the second paddle somewhere, so Logan just used his hands. 😛 Who knows what Jeff was exclaiming about…
Hey, they’re all standing up at once! Pretty impressive, right?
Oh. Well. That didn’t last very long.
They all survived! 😛
And now we shall end with a hilarious photo of Jeff trying to escape before the canoe sinks. :’D He has the best expressions.
Ha ha, working with these photos just made me smile. 🙂 I hope they did the same for you, my friends!
Which photo was your favorite? Does tipping a canoe sound fun to you or not? Do you like swimming?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
