On the lake...

"Ah, Summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it." -- Russel Baker

..."suffer," at least in terms of the extreme high temps and humidity! :)

But what better way to beat the heat, than with a little tubing and wakeboarding with the kids on the lake!

A friend, Chase, suiting up with his board and life vest.

Ashley, below, about to get the hang of it!

Kevin and the kids were out on the lake at 6:45 Thursday morning, before the heat became unbearable. I joined them shortly after. When the boat is not moving, it gets warm real quick!

...Kid down, again... (below) ;)

Dalton, Chase's brother....

Dalton patiently "instructing" David.

...needs a little more practice! :)

Ash and David take a break from wakeboarding for tubing....

Looks like a lot more fun and less stressful to me!
....Just sayin'! :)

"Spending the summer on the lake with my AWESOME kids and their friends...priceless!!!"


  1. Looks like an absolutely wonderful way to spend the summer,Rhonda!

  2. Heaven on earth! What a wonderful blessing this is to you. The kids are growing so much it's just hard for me to believe! Have a great weekend.

  3. It looks like everyone was having a GREAT time. I am scared of being over my head in the water and I don't swim but I always envy those who enjoy it so much.

    take care,

  4. This looks like a blast, Rhonda!

    I loved water skiing when I was their age. Wakeboarding looks a little harder!
