lake vacation: Lake Action

Monday, August 10, 2009

We rented a boat for the week because you can't get the whole lake experience without some lake action.

Here's Our Lake Action Captured

Aunt Cara and Sidney


Mike skiing


Grandpa Mark, CeCe, and Aunt Cara watching Aunt Sam knee board, or it was more like body board.


Uncle Tyson's wipe out...(one of them).


Grandma Sue is adventurous.
She loves tubing, roller coasters, and the thought of sky diving.
Her action on the lake was cut short though when she hurt her rib leaning over the side of the boat to pull in the knee board.



Aunt Sam and Sidney.
Thumbs up means "go faster" and thumbs down down means "go slower".

Aunt Sam liked it slower and Sidney just couldn't get enough speed.



A family picture.
Uncle Mark skiing, Aunt Cara, CeCe, and Sidney in the tube.
We had to snap some pictures quickly before CeCe freaked out. Tubing was not her favorite.



This picture captured the girls' opinions of their tube action perfectly.
CeCe had enough and Sidney could go on forever.



Sidney


Aunt Sam and Sidney on the left. Mike on the right.


CeCe was much more content riding in the boat.


Uncle Mark and Uncle Tyson dual skiing.

Cayman got some lake action too.
If you look close, you can see Cayman's hands up in the air.

She loved it!!


Cayman was so content on the lake that she even took a few afternoon naps on the boat.

Look at how long she is getting.


My last and final lake action I share with you is a video of Uncle Tyson and Mike tubing.

Tyson wipes out...
Mike's tube runs over him...
Tyson skips across the water twice before plunging into the lake...
And CeCe's adorable voice calls out, "Tyson, are you alright?"
And he was.




Happy Birthday today to my niece Sidney!

The REAL question is...did Uncle Tyson's trunks end up at the bottom of the lake....again?!?!?!?
