It had been a while since I'd been out on the boat for a tubing run, and I quickly remembered why. I. don't. enjoy. it. AT. ALL. I'm way too nervous about the tubers, the wake, the boat bouncing, the turning, the leaning, and the possibility of getting sprayed by water. Or a beverage. (The least of my worries, actually, but it happens.) :)
The boys, however, loved it. They loved going really fast, catching air, and going side to side over the wake. I mostly kept my eyes closed. I managed to get a couple of pictures (when I wasn't hanging on for dear life), but it was definitely during the tamer portions of the run.
Back in the cove, Riley gives me a thumbs up.
The boys had a really fun day together, without a fuss or a cross word. We are thankful for the opportunity for them to make special memories.
On Friday morning, I made the traditional flag dessert. I started making a cake version back when I was in high school, and it has evolved to a fruit pizza with cream cheese frosting and a flag design. Yum!
Noah spent some time snoozing in the swing.
We were happy to have Courtney's parents join us for supper on Friday, but I didn't get any pictures since I was busy getting food ready and other hostessing affairs. Of course, there was a little wedding talk that slipped into the conversation. We are all looking forward to Adam and Courtney's big day, on March 21!
After supper, we took a cruise on the pontoon (much more my speed). We had a full boat, and I squeezed into the seat with Captain Jim. Jamalyn grabbed my phone to take a picture, even though she had a hard time stomaching my (David's) Carolina sweatshirt.
David, Shylah, and Mackey.
On Saturday, Dave had a wedding to officiate, Jennifer had a wedding to photograph, and Jim and I had a wedding to attend. 'Tis the season!
As we were leaving for our wedding, I snapped this one of Jamalyn and the kids on the watermat. Everyone loves the watermat!
Later, Bryan and Noah got ready for a boat ride in their matching stripes. Ahoy, matey!
In the busyness of the weekend, I realized I didn't have a photo of Jennifer. So after my 'Tuesday with Noah' I got one of her with that sweet little one when she got home from work.
