Fun at the lake!

It's been HOT here, unusually hot for Southern California. Hot and miserable. Hot and humid. I am not one for heat, I like mild temperatures. So we decided to escape some of the heat and head to the lake. Of course it was 113 at the lake but close to the water, and having the water to dive into if the heat becomes too much to bear made it feel more like 102.

What a great day! Everything went perfect. We got there at 10:00 a.m. and were sad to have to pack up and leave at dusk. We didn't drive out of the parking lot until 10:00 p.m.

Since water skiing was almost impossible due to the choppy waters caused by the billion Sea Do's Scott decided to try the knee board. Not as easy as you would think since you have to velcro yourself in while on the move. He got a little help from his uncle close to shore.

He's up and he LOVES it! He can't wait to get out there and do it again.

Yes, he is proud of himself, he is hooked for sure!

Every knee boarder needs a brave flag man to hold up the red flag when the knee boarder goes down in the water or those nasty Sea Do's will run you down everytime. Christopher was pretty proud of the fact that he was picked to be the flagman for his brave big brother.

He held that flag high in anticipation of an ugly Sea Do trying to run down his brother. He did a great job!
Whew, that was actually a little tougher than he anticipated.

Tayler enjoyed just hanging out near shore playing on the Boogie Boards and collecting sea weed of all things.

That dang game boy stuff wins out every time with Jeff, my couch potato.

Elyse is hooked on the whole boat thing. She loved it and is still talking about it. She didn't even fight me on the life vest this time around. A true water rat like the rest of them.
