Our good friends and neighbors invited us to go boating with them a few Saturdays ago. We were so excited to be out on the lake enjoying great weather and fun friends. Brandon and Grant have never been on a boat, so this was exciting.
Or not. :) I'm sure I tried at least a dozen times to get up, but I just could not maintain a grip long enough to get up. I even tried wrapping my arms through the rope hoping I would be able to hold on better like that, I couldn't, but I did get some great bruises to show for it. Brandon was a great cheer leader, so confident that I would get up. I felt a little bad that I couldn't do it for him. My ego was a little hurt, but practice makes perfect, so I'll try again. One thing is for sure, I will be prepared with sun screen, and I will not be wrapping my arms in the rope, ouch :) Despite the aches and pains following the outing, it was absolutely a wonderful, beautiful day!!
