A couple of weeks ago, Kristin called to see if we wanted to go to the lake with them! Um...let me think about that for a second...YES!!!! Going on out on a boat is my favorite thing to do. It's a piece of heaven for me.
We had a quick picnic before heading out to the boat!
Laney & Ella!
Ella was so pumped! She's only been on a boat a few times and it had been a really long time, so I'm not sure if she even remembered.
Ella & Kristin!
Me & my sweet girl! Ella had some blue gatorade right before we got on the boat, so in every single picture I took this day she has blue teeth. Ha!
Ella & her daddy!
I'm not a big fan of tubing these days. I guess I'm getting to old because the last time I tubed a couple of summers ago, I fell off and hit the water so hard it knocked the breath out of me. So I've decided it's not for me. Needless to say, I was pretty nervous at this moment watching my little girl go out for her first tubing experience EVER!
And as you can see from this picture...she LOVED it! She was such a rock star. Heath said she cracked up laughing the entire time and she even learned the signal on how to tell the driver to go faster and used it often. My little daredevil.

Next it was my turn. I told Ella before we took off that I was a little nervous (because of the whole air being knocked out of me thing). She told me, "Mama stop worrying. It's FUN!" Ha! Love her!
We had a blast!!
While we were on the tube, I was wondering why we kept speeding up. I found out when we got off that Ella was giving the driver the thumbs up to go faster and I never saw her do it once!
This was the 1st time for all three of us to ever ride on a jet ski. It was love at first sight.
Heath and I took turns driving. And at one point, we may or may not have flipped it over. Not because we were going too fast, but because we were going too slow! That would only happen to us!
We took occasional breaks to jump in the lake to cool off.
Melissa was in the water catching all our babies.
My treasured friends, Melissa & Kristin!
