Weekend at the lake





This past weekend (Sept. 6 & 7) we were invited to stay on our friends houseboat. Man, did we have so much fun! The kids could not get enough of the water, including Kade, he loved to eat the sand! Kobe and Kennedy's favorite activity was the seadoos, as was mine, and taking rides on the boat. Sometimes our friend drove so fast our faces were flapping in the wind and uncontrolled spit/slobber would creep out of our mouths:) (Just thought I would paint a picture for you.) It is so nice to have Lake Mead only 10 minutes away, especially since we live in the desert. It was definately a weekend that both Justin and I needed. Even though it is 10 minutes away we felt like we "got" away for the weekend. It was hard to leave, but our friends promised to have us back soon.....we can't wait!

Wow, what nice and rich friends you must have. We are not quite that lucky. Most of our friends only have motorhomes. I guess it depends on where you live what type of "toys" you have. As for us, our toys consist of the wii, the park behind our house, the trail... most that don't cost oodles of money! Love you.

Looks like loads of fun. I like your new pix on the side. You look great. Take care, good luck this weekend running 20 miles. You are almost there, only a couple more weeks.

Looks like fun! I'm glad you guys got away, eventhough it was only 10 miles from your house! I love all of the pictures... especially the new ones on the side! You look fabulous as usual! I know I used an exclamation point on every sentence... I am well aware, yet I still continue to do it!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so jealous! I love the lake! If I ever have enough money, I'm definately buying a houseboat! Looks like tons of fun!

Rach you guys look like you are having a blast. I am glad you were able to "get away". It is always nice to be able to relax. Hope you can do it more often.

I'm so jealous. It seems I'm always pregnant during skiing season. I bet you guys had a ton of fun!

Hey, I have never noticed before in your header picture little Kade is giving the thumbs up.... how stinkin' cute is that!

Rach,I was only joking. I hope you weren't offended by my "rich friends" comment. I am only now responding because I just now checked my own blog. I am not on top of things at all around here. :)

Hey! I got your comment about emailing you an invite but you left me your blog address instead of your email address. If you leave it in a comment, I'll be sure to delete it at the end of the day so you don't have to worry about your email address floating around. I'm glad you check out our blog. I love looking at yours! Your family is so cute! :)

Hey I found your site from Kim... Looks like you guys had fun. We are planning on heading out to the lake for the same thing tomorrow! I had fun at church last night and getting to know you a little better. We should try to get together some time!

How nice!! It's starting to cool down a little here, you're weather is probably perfect now.

I'm jealous, I can't remember the last time I was on a boat! Not that I would be caught dead in a swim suit right now!!!! It is so nice seeing pics of your family.
