Relaxing On The Water

I hope everyone had a good Fourth of July.   Yesterday my kids and I spent the day on the water. Thing 1 went to the beach with his friends while Things 2 and 3 spent the day with me and some friends on their speedboat at Diamond Lake. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures, but Thing 3 had a huge grin on her face while bouncing along on the inner tube behind the speeding boat.  Amazingly none of us got sunburned (which is a first, I think!) even though it was very hot.  

The lake is very nice, and there’s an island in the center of the lake with houses on it.  A barge goes back and forth for vehicle transit.  There’s also a sand bar where lots of boats anchor and you can swim, relax on the boat, listen to music, and talk to other boaters. 

The water was the perfect temperature, and we stopped at different spots so the kids could dive off the boat.  At one point the rope tethering the inner tube came undone while the girls were on it.  We didn’t realize it had come undone until the girls started drifting away from us. Luckily they didn’t get far and were able to swim the tube back to the boat.

All in all it was a relaxing, fun day.
