Since that time we have taken every family vacation I can remember to the lake. And I love it to this day.
(I love his form...always arms straight back, right foot pointed forward, back foot kicked behind. Almost looks choreographed!)
And cruising in the boat. Nana can drive a mean boat. (As long as Popaw keeps barking instructions.)
And he's still the best skier I know at 62! I actually got up, too...kinda hard to take a picture of yourself skiing. And keep a baby from drowning. Or a camera.
The kids enjoyed jumping out of the boat into the middle of the lake. It was a bit of a thrill for them.
Riv: "Are there River Monsters in here?"
TB: "Or catfish? The big ones that eat people?"
Riv: "Or alligators?"
Guess who's been watching Discovery Channel? River Monsters will give you a healthy fear of the water for sure.
It took P a bit to warm up to the experience. Or the life jacket. Not sure which was more stressful for her. She'll be a river rat before it's all said and done. If Popaw has anything to do with it.
Good thing we live in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Too bad they freeze slap solid 6 months out of the year. We could always take up ice-fishing!
