The main entertainment

So, mom bought this boat 17 years ago. We have had a lot of fun on it in the past. It hadn't been used for a couple of years, so mom took it in for a big overhaul. We have to go in shifts on the boat. The girls were going first, then after an hour, they'd switch with the boys. Here they are anxiously waiting to take off. Oh, no, we can't start the boat and it's rapidly filling with water, there must be a hole in the bottom. We decided to load it back up, take it to the parking lot and jump the battery. By the time Brian, Krissy and Dad got it loaded up, the water had filled the boat up to the seats.

Mom and I had taken the girls back to the cabin and by the time we came back down, it was just in time to jump it.

Dad also discovered that there was no hole, but he'd forgotten to put the plug back in two years ago. Luckily, the plug was sitting in the cup holder, and after draining the boat (I swear we had half the lake in it.) and the jump, it was good to go!

This was Ella and Cynjyn's first time on the tube and they absolutly loved it.

Some guy had made this car boat and he drove the car up to the dock, pushed a few buttons and drove right into the lake, floated around and drove out!!

Kres was too little to ride the tube, but he enjoyed the ride around the lake on the boat.

Taz and Trey had been on the tube before, but it had been a couple of years. They truly loved it! Thanks Grandma, we love the boat and thanks Grandpa for spending hours riding us all around ALL day!

All the pictures are showing that you're having a great time. Lucky you! It is hard to believe a missing plug could almost take down that cute boat. Wow! I remember seeing those boat-car things back when I was a young thing--I always wanted one!
