my happy place

My 50 year old dad...
Still kills it while water skiing!
So I had to prove that I can still wake board...
But this pregnant girl didn't attempt any jumps. Not worth the risk of wrecking bad!
Oh Eric...
My dad tried to kill him, ha ha.
Little brother knee boarding.
I mean seriously... 50 years old!!
Future grandad took us for a little put-put ride around the lake. Probably the only time he hasn't tried to throw us off the tube :)

I live for days like these!
Spending a day at the lake, on a boat, is definitely my happy time.
I'm hoping to enjoy a few more of these happy days before the summer ends!
 Who wants to join us next time?? :)

OMG what an incredible view!!! In TX, there are NO mountains surrounding our lake so I could not get over the hills behind the water!! SO gorgeous!!

PS-go dad!

Dee Stephens said...

We are lake people too but I won't even get on the tube while pregnant! Look at you!
I would be scared to death about falling and injuring myself!!
Be careful!

Ah this looks like so much fun! What a blast! And, I love that you took part in what you could, even pregnant! That lake reminds me a lot of Lake Mead in Nevada and makes a little homesick. Your family looks like tons of fun!

The background in these pictures is beautiful! Can't imagine seeing that all the time. All I have t look at is corn fields! Lame cakes :) happy Monday! Love ya, friend!!

Amy said...

Ahhh! These are so fun! I too have been spending the last few days tubing on the lake! Which is so unusual for me because I live on the salty coast of Carolina! Come check out some of my photos tomorrow from our time at the lake.
And that last one is too sweet! It will be a great keepsake.

Xo,
Amy

I love spending time on the water! It's one of my favorite summer activities! I'm sad though I haven't been out yet this summer. My dad owns two jet skis and I haven't gone once! =(

O'Melly said...

OH my gosh! I LOVE tubing and water skiing!! I can't wait to move back to Ontario and bomb around on the lakes there. (The mountain lakes are too damn cold!)

Ashley said...

You are like the most active/brave pregnant gal ever! (: Wake boarding while pregnant... you rock. I can barely wake board while not pregnant haha.

A day on the lake sounds amazing. I'm going back to MI in a couple weeks and am thrilled to get on the lake... this ocean stuff isn't really for me.

You look great, and what awesome skiers!!! Way to go Dad!

Looks like a lot of fun, you are brave! I would have never attempted to do this pregnant! Your comment made me laugh so hard but it's true I had to unbutton those pants after dinner I ate too much at Spaghetti Factory ;P
