Summer Days at the Lake

It's enough just to be able to go out to the lake to cool off on hot days.
Boats make it even more fun!
Wyatt got this RC boat for his birthday a couple of years ago.

And even more fun... Grampa Grasshopper brought his boat down and took us all for a ride.
Gunnar is loving it!

Wyatt and Tate, too.

Doesn't he look grown up?

Saw this little paddle-wheeler tied up at a dock.

Gunnar likes tubing, if they don't go too fast.

Tate is more of a wild child.

And Wyatt decided he'd rather do this.

I settled for swimming.
And no one needs a picture of that ;D

There is nothing so fun as messing around in boats! I love the pictures of the lake- what a beautiful place.

I always love your posts that show the area you live in. Really beautiful part of God's creation you have there!

Can it be any more gorgeous?!? We only have scenery like that when we head up north. That looks so fun! Is waterskiing going to be attempted someday too?

Looks like you all are having a fantastic summer!
Great photos...

Ruby, I'll try to include more photos. It is beautiful here, especially in the summer... a very different kind of beauty than Australia :D

So far the boys would rather just go tubing, though we have skis. I grew up living right on the lake and we skied a lot, but I haven't for probably 20 years. I'm happy just to swim!
