Day 162 – Saturday ~ Lake Oconee

June 12, 2010

Lake Oconee with dear friends. What a fantastic day in the sun (for the non-sun Bosters).

Michael was so thrilled the boat made bubbles and went fast!

Lucas & Katie were "Big Mable" friends. They both loved being towed FAST on this perfect-for-friends tube.

Michael & Sofia watched their older siblings show-off behind the boat.

This is one of my favorite photos. These two were notorious for simply jumping into the water without warning. They loved the simple pleasures of swimming with life jackets as much as playing with the "toys" on the lake.

Kelly is an expert jet skier. The kids were thrilled to do donuts in the water with her. I even loved my tour of the lake with her.

Nate loved playing on the jet ski too. Katie girl wasn't so fond on this innertube (her legs got caught underneath and water constantly splashed in her face).

Michael was constantly laughing and enjoying every minute with dad. These two are built from the same mold. I sure love my boys!

Naptimes in the afternoon and popcorn and a movie after dinner. What a fantastic day with great friends.

What I learned today.

1. That my kids are as much fun as their daddy. They love adventure. They love the water. They love laughing. They love the sun.

2. Life jackets really are this mom’s greatest invention. I’m so thankful that the kids loved them too.

3. A six-year-old’s strength and determination should never be under-estimated.(Katie had an amazing acrobatic feat we’re still talking about today. The boat crossed over it’s own wake, causing the “Big Mable” to catch air. Katie’s legs flew straight up over her head, falling off the side and into the water. All the while, she managed to hold onto the straps and right herself onto the tube again. Amazing!!)

4. Great friends really are among the best gifts God gives us here on earth. Love is most evident in smiles and laughter and conversations on the couch.

5. Sunscreen reapplied regularly does work even on ghost-white skin…adult and child alike.

We will be talking about today for months.
