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. 

Bryce is a die hard skier, and it shows.  They even have pictures of him skiing right next to ice.  Fortunately they have a dry suit so he stays warm. :)
I love this picture of Bryce and Sharece doing what they enjoy. :)

Each of the boys took a turn driving the boat, that was entertaining and terrifying. 
Jason was so confident to just jump in the water, after all dad was all ready in there.  It was cold and he didn't last long, but it was fun just the same.
This picture shows how we all felt while out on the boat.  So happy!

Brandon was really good at steering the boat to a constant right, it was funny but not so fun. :)
All of the boys, except Brandon took naps.  Warm sun and a rocking boat - can't say that I blame them.
Pretty Sharece
I got talked into trying to wake board, I was never very good at skiing as a teen, and I had never tried wake boarding before, but I was assured that it was easy, and I felt confident that I could learn.  This is me putting on the dry suit.
Thought I was going to die trying to get my head through that hole - not good for the claustrophobic.
Ready, Set, Go
 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!!

You did get some great pictures! I looked at my pictures yesterday and realized I only got ONE! It is of you and Jared. It was so fun having you guys, we'll have to do it again. (When it ever warms up again.) And p.s. Why didn't anyone tell me to fix my hair?! I look crazy. Haha!
