AND apparently editing is not my strong suit...as if you didn't know! Long post ahead!
Our good friends, the Moss's, got a awesome new boat, so we HAD to go out with them and try it out! We had an amazingly fun, and ahem, adventurous time! We went early this morning, despite chances of scattered showers.
Right off, Ace and Misty got on the tube!
|Ace is an old pro and we were going too slow for his taste!|
|Me and the girls watching!|
|Em in (my) Costas!|
Then they got on the tube for another turn. This time Andy could drive a little faster!
|Still didn't knock them off though!|
After that ride, Em was super excited!
|Giggling over their rides!|
I HAD to film some of Em and Paytie's first solo ride!
Haydon had been too nervous to ride up to that point, but he couldn't let the GIRLS out do him!
|He was freaked out at first, but we finally got a "Woo Hoo!" out of him!|
|Potty break on-board! Ha!|
Then one LAST ride! ALL the little kids at one time! From nervous to fearless in a matter of hours!
They did great! UNTIL a big swell topped the front of the tube! No one went overboard and thankfully, they all laughed!
Then we just cruised around and relaxed for a while!
|Paytie was all about driving and steered us in circles and circles and circles!|
|Mischievousness, right there!|
|Em- "I'm NOT smiling!" Little heifer!|
|Andy is BRAVE man!|
|Love this picture! Silly kids!|
|Ace was very serious about driving!|
|Sun-bathing beauties! Ha!|
We got to the dock, Clinton got out to back the trailer down... And we waited. And waited. Thankfully, the rain was just a steady drizzle at this point! And the boat has a cover!
He finally came back and said the key wouldn't unlock Andy's truck door. Why not? Because it wasn't the right key! Andy happened to have TWO sets of truck keys in his truck, and when Clinton parked the truck, he dropped the keys, then grabbed the wrong set! Uh-oh!
No worries, though, because Andy said he had another set at his shop. Thankfully, not far from the lake! The men set off for the keys. Misty and I stayed on the boat with the kids, floating around (in the rain). And waited. And waited. By this time, we'd been on the water for about 5 hours.
Clinton came back alone and said Andy couldn't find the keys, but he was headed to the house to look (again not far!) Just funny at this point! Misty and I had seen some lightning, so we wanted the kids OFF the boat! Clinton and I got them off "rescue style" and he put them in his truck, out of the rain! Andy arrived then... no keys at the house! Bahaha!
So Misty and I, still on the boat, just floated around and chatted, and had a grand time with no kids or hubbies, while they tried to jimmy the door open!! No luck! They decided to cut their losses at the this point, and moved the boat trailer to the other truck! Finally, at 4:30 p.m. (6 hours on the water!) we pulled the boat out of the water. Andy's truck is still at the lake! :/
Clinton is a little embarrassed, (I think, he won't admit it!), but we all had a good laugh about it! Just had too good of a time today to do anything else!
We can't wait to do it all again, but maybe we'll double check the truck keys first! Ha!
