Like Little Big Town says--Get yourself a koozie, let's go!
We spent last weekend on the lake and were super excited to check out Boom Pa's new toy--the pontoon boat!
|We invited Brooklyn and her big brother, Ben, to go with us this time. On Friday afternoon, it was hot, but the weather was perfect for some tubing.|
|There is so much more room on the new boat! These 5 easily fit on the back.|
|The front has more than enough room for this little lady to do some fishing. She was in heaven every time we stopped to switch out tubers.|
|While we toured the lake, J took time to just enjoy the sun. Did I mention we love this boat?!|
|We tried pulling two tubes at once. |
It was alright until that long rope started coming across close to Ben's head!
|Lake Life. I think they could get used to it.|
|Even though we are some pretty rad tubers, we decided to just stick with one tube at a time. |
These boys were ready to conquer Lake Texoma.
|The boys did great--had some pretty sweet wipeouts--and then it was the girls' turn.|
|Everyone gave it a big thumbs up. They are fearless!|
|After her turn on the tube, little Missy took the wheel, announcing, "I'm the boss!"|
That she is. And don't think she lets us forget it!
|The next morning brought even more fun when Sawyer, Colby, Samantha and Riley brought their parents to hang out with us for the weekend.|
|Nine kids and six adults--we got this!|
|Cami and Sami. Love these little peas in a pod.|
|The big boys showed the little boys how to hang on for dear life!|
|Everyone took turns riding the wave runners. When Adam drove by and asked if anyone wanted to ride, these two girls were the first to holler, "Me!" They hopped right on and proceeded to tell him to go faster every chance they got.|
|Meanwhile, Colby was as happy as he could be pretending to be the Captain.|
|We swam, fished...|
|and just enjoyed being together so much.|
|We came in for lunch and the kids immediately all got in the new hot tub. Kid approved!|
|After lunch, there was a lot more tubing. Get it girls!|
|Many more rides on the big toys.|
|Everyone was a fan!|
|While we took it easy with the little kids, the thrill level was raised with the older ones. I took the boys to jump some big waves. We got sweet air and had so much FUN!|
|Jared took the girls for a spin or 50, too.|
|With our busy lives, I don't get to see Hayley and Emily as often as I would like. This was the perfect remedy for that. Love my girls.|
|We played until Cami just gave out. Sweet girl fell asleep with the fishing pole still in her hand.|
|Jackson took the boys on a ride up to the house...|
|and then kids did the slip 'n slide while we cooked dinner.|
|After we ate, we celebrated Matt's birthday. |
"Happy Birthday, dear Matt. Happy Birthday to YOU!"
|The next morning, we went to fill up the gas tank...|
|then it was time to hit the water again!|
|All the kids took turns tubing until we had to call it quits at noon. |
Baseball practice was calling Jackson's name back home. Bummer.
|My girl and I cannot wait to get back to Texoma this weekend with my cousin Leslie and Aunt Glenda! It's going to be another awesome time--on the pontoon!|
