PSF and the tube

On July 4, we all headed out to Eatonton, GA to visit with some college friends and hang out on Lake Oconee.

The weather was amazing. We all swam in the lake. Even me, which is amazing since I basically think a lake is a glorified puddle. We went out on the boat and did some tubing as well.

Jack was thrilled to get to go tubing. And I only had to bribe him a little bit.

Here we are starting out. I love the determined look on his face.

Lots of laughter accompanied that great smile.

The boat speed up a bit and the water was already a bit choppy due to all the lake traffic but we were still having a ball.

I'm pretty sure this is the point where I almost fell off. It's harder than I thought it would be to hang on to the tube and a six-year-old at the same time.



How did you celebrate Independence Day?

Looks like SO much fun, but what the heck?? You look better when you're about to go on a tubing ride than I do when I go to church! Geez!

Kmama said...

Look at you tubing with earrings on! LOL Looks like you had a good time!

Buddy has gotten a bit braver this year when it comes to tubing.

Tubing is hard work! I'm always sore after! We usually put our butt in the center though and have our feet hang over the front and hang on.

You look like you got all dolled up to go tubing. Super cute pictures. Your looking great!

Kelli said...

That looks like a ton of fun. I bet that would be hard to hang onto the tube and your baby. Great pictures.

I am completely impressed with your ability to look great AND wear earrings while on a tube with a kid being pulled behind a boat surrounded by tons o' water. Good job! :)

Incidentally, do you read kanji? Just curious 'cause it looks like you have some international fans commenting :)

I'm not a big fan of getting in lakes either...I barely like to get in the ocean either! But that looks like SO MUCH fun! I've never done that before...I'd be too scared! Yay for Jack! Really cute pics!
