Boating with Friends

Finally I am back to blogging after taking the last two weeks off! One week Keith was on vacation and we spent the week spending time with family and also we have been busy with summer activities and my computer time has been at about nothing. Summer is a time for being outside and enjoying life! Since I am back and I uploaded over 100 pictures from the last two weeks I am busy sorting through everything that has happened and what to blog about first, so, I asked Cara and Erica. They both agreed that boating should be first.

This last weekend we went boating twice. Friday night we were invited to go boating with Scott, Nicole and Tyler (our neighbors two doors down) on their boat. So late Friday afternoon, we packed up the cooler with sandwiches, chips, crackers, cookies and pop and headed to Pierce to Willow Lake for an evening of boating, swimming and tubing. Much to my dismay, my camera chose that evening for my battery to be dead so I have no pictures from a great evening. The kids had so much fun swimming in the lake and tubing. It was a great evening!!!

Sunday morning we were up bright and early and headed off to Mass. After Mass, we ate a quick breakfast, changed clothes and packed the cooler again. A different neighbor invited us to go to Yankton to Gavin's Point Dam and boat with them. We put the boat in the lake on the Nebraska side but we crossed over to the South Dakota side also.

Cara, Preston, Elliot, Sienna and Keaton tubing. The kids were jumping back and forth between tubes as we were cruising along. Sometimes they would fall off on purpose to cool off!

Keith joined in on the tubing occasionally.

Justin even cooled off in the lake with Keith and Elliot.

After boating twice this weekend, I foresee the purchase of a boat in the near future. Keith has had the itch for awhile and this weekend just made it stronger. The weather here has been very hot and what better a way to cool off then to go boating!

Take care,
