If the first four months of her life are any indication, Norah will love the outdoors when she grows up!

She’s been to a whopping THREE lakes so far, and has enjoyed all of them.

Her first visit was to Lake Koronis, the lake her dad grew up on.

{we didn’t think to take pictures, which is probably ok as she didn’t actually go in the lake. momentous, but next summer will be much more fun!}

Next, we visited Big Stone Lake, where Norah’s great-grandparents have a cabin.

Norah thoroughly enjoyed getting to dip her toes in this lake, and so far loves swimming in water of any temperature. This will undoubtedly be good training for her future Olympic swimming career.

We're determined not to raise one of those whiny Olympians who complains about water temp!

Then we visited Lake Yankton, the lake I grew up on.

Norah also thought this lake was great, although perhaps a little boring as she promptly fell asleep.

Norah has always loved being outside, and even in her fussiest moments she always calms down once the fresh air hits her face. I think she’s destined to spend many hours playing outside!
