On the Lake Again

Saturday we went out on the boat with our friends Tony and Valerie and their son "little" Tony.  We met them through baseball (Tony is Nicholas Coach).  I know y'all are probably sick of hearing about all of our boating adventures, but I'm truly having the best time spending time with our friends out on the lake.

We've now gone to the lake enough times that we've got everything down to a science.  We load everyone up on the boat with all our food and coolers and head out to a little island.

We usually eat on the island and then leave our big coolers and just take snacks and a small cooler out for the rest of the day.  We've found a cove we like and we probably swam and floated for about 2 hours without seeing another soul.

We joked with Val and Tony that we had rented out the entire lake for them.  I swear this is Texas' best kept secret.

It definitely seemed like we were out there all alone.

Val and I floated around on our rafts and sent the kids back to the boat when we needed another beverage.  It was the perfect scenario.  Although, I bet a floating cooler would work out nicely too.

Of course the whole day couldn't be spent just sitting around and being lazy.  We had to let the Gonzalez family try to wake board.  Everyone gave it a try.

And Nicholas gave private instruction.

It wasn't a successful endeavor, but I think everyone had fun trying.

I keep telling everyone not to base their opinion about how hard or easy it might be on Nicholas because he makes it look so easy.  Tony and Val didn't really believe me until they tried.  Now they're believers that "it's not as easy at it looks".

After wake boarding we headed back to our island to pick up the coolers and have a snack.  This time the boys got their hands on our rafts. Not cool.

 Oh well, Val still made the best of it and floated around on her noodle.

By the time it was all said and done, we spent more than 7 hours at the lake.  I really can't think of anything I like to do better.  I love being on the water and in the sun with my family and great friends.
