lake livin’ …
I’m not gonna lie … we are thoroughly loving the lake life!
Our house came with a pier, dock and boat slip … minus the boat. So one of the first things I did was get ourselves a boat! In fact, as I was writing out the check on my tenth wedding anniversary … I thought, “happy anniversary to me!”
Just one glitch. I’ve never. ever. never. driven a boat before. True story.
And the thought of it freaked me out a tad.
And then there’s the thought of the whole-motor-under-the-boat-thing. And it didn’t help that when we picked up the boat, the dealer told us a story of just a few days before a man falling out of his boat and running himself over and losing limbs. True story.
I took it slow and learned what I could learn. Like for instance … the boat should be in the water before one starts the engine. Yeah. It’s like that.
But once we got that puppy in the water … off we went! And because the weather’s so warm, we’ve been out on the lake pretty much since we got here in May.
I took these photos of the girls mid-May …
And this past week, we found a new lake activity … wakeboarding! Three outta four gave it a try …
But only two could get out of the water. I’ve gotta tell you though … I’m so proud of her for giving it a try! She tried over and over …
Lastly … here we have our favorite pastime! The girls could spend hours on a tube! If you make it to .40 seconds or so, the girls take a wicked flip!
