What I Love

Saturday we went out for another boating trip to Sand Hallow... I'm loving this! Watching Todd ski always reminds me of when I was falling in love with him. This may sound silly but it was real important to me that whomever I ended up spending the rest of my life with HAD to love boating and being on the water. The first time I watched Todd behind the boat I knew it was meant to be! I love that he still gets out there and can rock the wake! Now I have a son that loves the water as much as his mom and dad. When we first mentioned boating Saturday morning he picked up on it right away & all we hear the rest of the day was "Boating?! Boating?!" When we got on the lake and blew up the tube he was the first that wanted to go, my little two year old - fearless! So I took him out and listened to him giggle and wave with a big smile on his face. He didn't want to get off but eventually we made him, kicking and screaming, so we could let Liv have a turn, kicking and screaming. My kids are so different. Liv was okay through the tube ride, but she didn't enjoy it. It did wear her out so she enjoyed drying and resting while we gave Gary another turn on the tube! But both kids thoroughly enjoyed playing on the beach! It is a good life!!

You're making me jealous... and really anxious for our Lake Powell trip in 4 weeks... skiing and boating EVERY day for a week...

Your family is beautiful! I love how much you love them. You're one of a kind!

It looks like you had so much fun! It makes me anxious for the summer to get here so I can go do fun outdoor stuff.

That's so cute how you wanted to marry someone who likes the water. I told my hubby when we were dating that if he didn't like to camp, that was a deal breaker. I don't know how serious my statement was, but he loves to camp so I guess I'll never know!

It's wonderful when you can share hobbies together that you love, then hopefully your kids love them too! :)

How fun! I am totally jealous as I sit here in the midwest 61 degree weather. Ugh! Just waiting for our warm up I tell you!

I actually grew up on the lakes in the Chicago area where we lived. We had so much fun skiing and tubing, it was a blast! A great memory from time spent with my dad.
