Last night, the Nobles invited us out on their boat. It was so fun, especially since the weather was so HOT yesterday. Boating on the lake was the perfect way to cool off after Shane got home from work. They had this great tube, which had four reclining seats, so you got to just sit and relax while being pulled by the boat (unless Jeremy decided to go really fast). :) Emma had no fear, and when it was her turn with Shane, she jumped right on and then laughed and screamed the whole time. After she was back in the boat, she kept saying, "I want to go again!". She loved it! Henry slept for most of the first part, all bundled up in his life jacket.
After a while we stopped the boat and hung out for a while. We had pizza & snacks, and then swam off the boat in the middle of the lake. It was beautiful, and even Henry got in the water for a bit (he didn't like it at all--water a little cold). Shane was adventurous and tried a few back flips off the boat and Emma just kicked and played with her friend Maggie on their water noodles.
Thanks for the great evening Nobles and Nihipalis! We are grateful for good friends and the beautiful place that we live.
