We (minus the boy...he had to work) spent the weekend with friends up at their cabin. And a lovely weekend it was. The weather? PERFECT. The kids...well, they were kids, but I will say given we had 6 girls ranging from 6-15 years, they did better than I expected.
Friday, we started out with a pontoon ride to a part of the lake that had this:
And they ALL jumped off of it. From the 6 year old:
It must be said, these boat rides are NOT all about the kids:
It was back to the ranch for fish tacos and a side of steak:
We were all up bright and early (OK...I exaggerated the bright part and flat out lied about "early"), made some breakfast burritos and had a late breakfast on the deck. Then, it was time to break out the fun boats. What, you may ask, are fun boats? Why...this is a fun boat:
It is a small boat, that runs on an electric battery that shoots water...or ferries passengers:
Yeah, right...they "claim" they're excellent drivers:
But it must be said...fun boats are NOT just for kids:
And to answer the age old question...exactly HOW many clowns can you fit on a water trampoline...well, you count:
And as luck would have it, Saturday was our friends' 17th anniversary. And boy...do they do up the gifts:
In case you're wondering, that beautiful 3D fish mug holds nine Miller Lite Silos. Yes, NINE.
The girls also did a little tubing. OH....a camera:
I think the girls had a good weekend.
Sunday was a fairly quiet day. There was the packing up, some brats cooked over an open fire, some fishing. What was really cool was that there was a next of young eagles that would occasionally screech (and not in unison). Occasionally we'd see one flying about:
How lucky are we?
