at the beginning of august, some friends invited us to come hang out at the lake. as much time as i spent at the lake in my younger years, this was something that the little people here had never done before. it didn't take long, however, for them to decide that they loved it!
ready to go!
if they didn't have to eat, i promise you that they could have lived on and around the boat! every single time the boat stopped, six kids were jumping off and swimming!
the tube was by far the favorite (well, it was for everybody except james!), and they even loved getting thrown off!! they all put up a good fight, but the tube was always the winner!!
it was fun to watch and listen them to cheer each other on while they were skiing!
they even cheered for mama, who still remembers how to slalom after a 13 year hiatus!
one of our gracious hosts! very thankful for sweet miss becky!
these boys got every drop of sunshine out of the day, and they had the exhaustion afterwards to prove it!
my kids wrote miss becky and mr. gary thank you notes, and each one of them said something along the lines of "thank you for letting us come to your lake. i can't wait to do it again." or, "i can't wait to come back next year." they better watch out, or they may have 6 new grandsons to add to their brood!! :)
