Bye Bye Motorcyle...Hello Boat!!!

My hubby sold his motorcycle and bought a boat with his money. Today we took it on the water for the first time and we had a blast!!! We live so close to a lake that we have always wanted a boat and now we have one. Of course it is an older boat, but we don't care it runs and we were able to pull the Heather and Melissa on the tube.

The boat started to overheat so we had to pull it in, but Brian is sure he can figure out what is wrong. It was cheap enough if it only lasts us a couple of years we will be totally happy. I spent yesterday reupholstering the seats...I must say I didn't do to bad for my first try.

You should have seen how funny it was to watch me back up the trailer to the boat launch....it was hilarious. I obviously need to get the hang of that for sure. My family got a good laugh out of it..so I was glad to entertain them for awhile. Here are some pictures of our day.

I can't wait to go fishing!!! I love to fish, but I have never caught a fish. There is something about just being on the water in nature I just love. I am so excited about just being on the boat!! We are home now and totally exhausted, the sun sure takes it out of you. What a great weekend so far!!!

Wednesday Musings.

I just realized it has been awhile since my last blog. Where does the time go? This week is such a busy week, end of year stuff, graduation cake, and Community Group Summer Party. I need to pray that my time is expanded this week. Yikes.

I have been traing for the 3 day walk and it has been great. I am up to 7.5 miles and that is exciting. I can't wait for the actual event!! My donations are inching up there and I am blessed beyond measure.

School gets out this week and I better find stuff for Melissa to do or I will have to hear "I'm bored" every single minute of the day...LOL. I so remember being a teenager and saying that to my mom. My mom said I would hear those words and yes, she was right. So, I better get on the stick and figure out what to do with this 15 yo. She is going to do drivers ed, so that will take up a little time..tee hee. I think Mel is getting to the age where hanging out with mom just isn't that cool. I hate this part of teenage years.

Hey, on a great note...we tried one of those topsy turvy planters for tomatos and we have a tomato...it is still green, but hey it is working. You should see how Brian babies that plant it is so cute. God love him. We also have one for cucumbers and it has flowered but no cucumbers yet..LOL.

No pictures this week...I need to get some new family photos done, we haven't had any in years. I can already hear the moans of my family as I type this. But if I don't get them done before Heather goes to Lubbock in July who knows when the next time we are all together again will be. I wonder what colors we should wear...hmmm.
