How to Celebrate a 40th Birthday!
Friday, we took Kelli, John and family out on the boat. The kids had a great time! The girls (and Kelli) went on the tube for about 1 1/2 hrs. (Let's just say...Kelli's back and legs are a little on the "pink" side! Of course, I forgot my camera, so we'll have to take pics next time.
Saturday, Kim, Dan and family went to the lake for her 40th birthday. What...??? I have a daughter who is 40! When did that happen!!?? Eventhough it was overcast, she was brave and jumped on the tube w/one of the girls. They had a blast. After falling (or jumping as they recall)...the other girls got on. Things were fine until the boat started beeping. A little disconcerting when you're trying to have fun! Long story short...the boat died. We called the ranger patrol and 2 hrs. later, they towed us into shore. We kept drifting further and further away from where we told them we were. So much for the anchor! It was a Laurel and Hardy act pulling the boat around the launch to get it into position to be hauled into the trailer. 3:30 in the afternoon with people trying to get out of the water. We had a lady trying to help and Chuck and Kim were jumping on boats to throw the line around them to pull ours closer. Yeah...happy birthday Kim!
