Lake Fun With the Tuttles
We had the best time at the Lake the other day. It was our last trip to Wiskeytown Lake before school started, and we went in the evening. It was still blazing hot outside, over 100 degrees, perfect! We piled in our giant Ford van with our 2 dogs, Max and Cleo. When you bring your dogs the options are limited on where you can go. We always try to find a spot by the dam. Luckily there was one spot left. Lugging our small ice chest, 2 chairs and towels, and our dogs pulling us and tugging on the leashes, we plopped our things down and hopped right in the water.
Our dogs get insanely excited- they can hardly stand it. So funny! Max is a freak, crying and yelping constantly, swimming in circles snapping at the water with his mouth. watch him go nuts here
Cleo loves to swim way out with us, she can go pretty far. She has to make sure we are ok out there.
Max on the other hand has work to do, staying close to shore. I got some great video of what he does. He does this over and over and over- he finds a good size rock underwater, puts his head underwater to grab it with his mouth, then promptly takes it up to shore and proudly puts it in a pile. Are we supposed to take these home in his mind? So funny. We counted the rocks on this trip and he had collected 12 big rocks. I don’t think the poor guy knows how to relax. He has to be working! Watch him right here
You know what the most fun about this trip was? Using our new Go Pro Camera. It can go underwater! So amazing and easy to use. After I was sitting in the water in my beach chair, the kids stole it from me and starting putting it at the bottom of the lake where they were sitting (about 9 feet down).
Jeremy and Hailey, along with Dad had the greatest time taking funny pics and videos underwater! It is amazing how clear these pics and videos turned out.
Jeremy, being a fish himself, loved chasing fish down at the bottom.
My hubby kept finding aluminum cans and beer bottles down there. Stupid lazy people who litter! Hailey loves the water too as long as she has her goggles on. Sometimes they wear fins on their feet. Chris and Jeremy go way way out in the water with fins and a snorkle.
My family is a school of fish! They are constantly in the water. check this out here
Have you ever noticed that food tastes incredibly better outside? We had tacos the night before and had a lot of left overs. Perfect! I warmed them up at home, wrapped them in foil and when we were done cooling off and started to get tired, we went to shore for a break and some warm tacos. Yummy! No cooking or dishes, quite nice.
One more silly video that makes me laugh
We were able to see the sun go down over the water. Very nice, it had been a while since I paid attention to a sunset. Sure makes you appreciate God and nature. I sat there wondering why we didn’t go out to the lake every night. It was so relaxing and quiet, if you can tune out our dog Max going nuts over his rocks! What a nut job he is. We should have named him Rockhead.
I love living in this area where there is so much outdoor recreation just minutes from our home. I feel very blessed to live here. We need to get out more often!
I Hope you enjoyed Lake Fun With the Tuttles!
