It did :)
Since it was Margaret's birthday, she was the first to take a tube ride. . .
This was followed by Marie and Thomas together. . .then Margaret was back on until we got to our lunch spot. No one wanted to go over the wakes so it was a calm day on the tube.
And some relaxing time for our captain. . .
And I got a few pics with my kiddos too :)
We ate dinner at the dock -- Margaret's choice for her birthday. She was tired and not in the mood for much more than food by then, but I did manage one picture with my 9-yr-old daughter today. . .
here and. . .well. . .it was almost exactly the same (except four days earlier so there wasn't a birthday dinner included). . .so funny! And a great look back at how the kids have grown :)
Because it was Memorial Day weekend, we ended up visiting the lake again on Monday! This time the girls were invited to the beach (at the same marina that we put the boat in) with some friends and Thomas asked his soccer friend, JJ, to join us. It was another hot, perfect day! We didn't get out until almost 1 p.m. but stayed out until 6. . .another 5 hours added to the 9 on Saturday -- quite a weekend for sure! Hope to have many more like this one in 2011 :)
And then some skiing by the big boys. . .Thomas back up. . .
. . .and jumping today. . .
Here's to many more days doing our favorite summer "thing". . .
