Independence Lake

The girls and I met Sarah, the babies, and her mom, and headed to the lake for a bit this afternoon. It's mid-80's and not raining, and this might be the last lake day this year. They've been few and far between, really.
Saoirse was pretty happy with herself for sitting in the water, in the waves, all by herself. She kept telling me she was "scooching" as she filled her diaper with sand.

While we had snacks, I was handing out grapes when I found a long blonde hair in the bowl. I pulled it out and just for a second wondered where in the heck we picked up a blonde hair before I realized that it came from one of my two blonde daughters. (!!??) During all the years of daydreaming and waiting for babies of my own, I did not picture them like this. Look at that hair!
