First Boating of the Year!

With the very warm/hot and dry days these past couple of weeks,
we couldn't wait to get out on the lake!  
We are so blessed to have such enjoyable, family fun available right in our neighborhood!
We were so thankful that Papa Bob and Meemom wanted and were able to take us
out for our first ride of the year
on both their speed boat and big pontoon boat! 
(Papa Bob and Meemom and myself were on the pontoon boat,
so unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of us or the big boat!)
We are also so grateful for the big water tube they purchased for the boys' early birthday present!
What an awesome gift that will keep on giving all summer long!
Thank you so much, Papa Bob and Meemom for such a fun time!
 We loaded up our friend Michael, neighbor Doug and his dog Penny,
and all the family but Richie and Lydia, who needed to finish haying one of their fields that afternoon. :-(  Next time, Richie and Lydia!
Brielle and Ben enjoyed hanging out in the boat,
eating lots of snacks,
 and talking horses with Michael.

 The rest of the kids enjoyed riding on the tube for a couple hours!
 And I enjoyed capturing some of the moments with my camera!
 Even after Victoria admits to trying to push Kyle off the tube at times,
he was still chivalrous, and helped pull her back on a few times! :-)


 Trying to do some tricks???
 Awww . . . they're holding hands! :-)

  Daddy takes great delight in trying his best to throw the kids off the tube.
 You can almost see his somewhat *evil* smile in the photo below!
 Kyle and Michael are up next!
They made it look easy!!!!
Kyle held on tight and was able to get back on after this near spill!

"I'm sailing! I'm sailing! I'm saaaaailing!"

"Guess what, Dr. Marvin?
Ahoy!  I sail!  I'm a sailor!  I sail!!!"

 Hands up in the air!
Beauty and grace . . .right???
 And lots of screaming!!

 Daddy didn't take it easy on the girls!

 Success!  High-fives!

What a fun day! I'd enjoy being pulled at a leisurely pace, but not whipped across the wake and thrown off. Those kids are brave!
