Our good friends bought a boat this year. Her and I grew up water skiing with her dad's boat. It was really fun, some of my best memories. I was not sure how 5 kids and 4 adults would do on a boat for the day, but it was great.
Like we were reliving the good old days. But than later she showed up us all how easy it was for her to pick up skiing again.
Moose loved every minute of this day. He keeps asking when we are buying a boat. Commander keeps saying some of the best days of your life are the day you buy and boat and the day you sell your boat. He of course can not appreciate this.
The lake had a small beach. Kids enjoyed some sand, building and playing in the water.
I think you have to be really tired to sleep on a boat. A short cat nap and he was ready to go again. It was really fun. We all enjoyed ourselves.
We drove by the skate park a few days prior. The boys seemed interested.
So I made a deal. First we ran a few errands and than to the skate park.
When we showed up, there was another first timer just starting. So that made it nice.
I think it helped the boys. Some of the other kids were really experienced.
The boys took to it so well.
Even my 2yo wanted to do it. I think he LOVED it.
NOW they are begging to go back all the time.
I was testing lighting and he was my subject. He thought that showing me his stick and moving really fast was helping. I should of been glad that there were no tears. The area was ok for lighting, a little cool for what I was looking for and a lot shadows.

We tried to allow one kid form each family out of the car at a time. It worked for awhile. She cleaned up and got some really good deals. We were looking for a new bike. And still have not found the one we want.
My kids and I look at this guys flickr photo stream every once in awhile and we both enjoy it.
He did a lego representation of this guys work.

Look how involved it is to set up a picture.
Just another funny one......
Being an RN I cracked up at this one.
Wishing he would use his words and not cry out in the middle of the night like my two year old. I know it is a phase, but I hope it passes soon. When I see this picture my night time exhaustion fades. Those brown eyes make me melt.
