A day at the lake.

Unfortunately life has been so busy we rarely get out on the boat. Luckily we were able to make it up to Jordanelle for some boating and family fun. I love sleeping on the boat because it rocks me to sleep most of the time. It was a little crazy trying to get the boys to sleep. They pretended the cabin was everything from a fort to the Bat Cave.

We headed up Tuesday night so we could get in some fishing. I simply adore this picture of Mike teaching the boys how to cast off. Everett is like his momma and had more fun casting than actually trying to catch something. Tracy is just like daddy and was very impatient with the fact the fish weren't biting.
Summer sure enjoyed her Oreo cookies.
She did NOT enjoy wearing her life jacket. Sorry Summy!
Wednesday the water was smoothe but VERY COLD!!! Mike was brave and skied long before I did.
The kids loved this fun tube. Everett kept wanting to go faster and faster. It was cute watching him give the "thumbs up" signal to speed up.
My boys.
It finally started warming up enough for me to venture out into the water.....
...but not without my FULL WETSUIT! Everett asked if I was a Power Ranger. Of course I told him I was and busted out my best moves. He loved it! I hope he still loves it when I bust out those same moves when he's older and with his friends. Mwahahahahaha!
Summer is such a water baby. We had to physically restrain her from jumping in while the boat was moving.
Everett was so tuckered out he couldn't even finish his liquorish. Notice it in BOTH hands. Silly little guy.
I LOVE driving the boat. I dream of living somewhere on the water where you get around by boat.
We found the perfect beach for lunch. Tracy thought he was really sneaky camouflaged into the scenery.
Water, here I come!
Clean is overrated.
We had such a wonderful time. I really want to make more of an effort to get out. There is nothing like being in close quarters with the ones you love, on the water, in the sunshine, surrounded by BEAUTIFUL mountains......I loved it! Hooray for Utah!
