It starts slowly and innocently enough.
"Daddy, can we play on the beach?"
"Sure, just stay out of the water. I don't want you to get wet."
Dad leaves for a few minutes and Grandma is in charge. Grandma, who loves her lake babies....
Pretty soon, they are wading. Still with the admonishment to not get wet!
Who are we kidding? Kids and the lake and not get wet. Those things just don't go together! The rule breaks.
Soon they are at their knees. Before I know it, they are "washing" their faces. A little splash, a big splash. Up to their knees and running. Giggles of joy.
Oh, oh. Here comes dad!
"I thought I told you not to get wet!"
