Hanging Out on the River

Happy Birthday, Erica!!!

Due to an electrical storm Friday night, I've been without internet service at home and will be at least until Monday morning. Marty laughs that I have to find other things to fill my time now! Ha! I decided to head up to the office while he and Heather had choir practice Sunday and catch up on some blogging!

Saturday our pastor Mitch called to see if we wanted to come over and hang out and have hamburgers. It sounded great to us so that afternoon we headed over to their house on the river and joined them along with our friends Jason and Erica and their kiddos, and Bill and Denise and their girls. We all enjoyed a relaxing afternoon visiting and playing games. Of course the teenagers, who never think it's too cold to ski, convinced Mitch to drag them around behind the boat for a while. Although no one else wanted to ski, most of us enjoyed the boat rides while the teenagers did.

What better way to spend a Saturday than hanging out with friends. Thanks Mitch and Reva!!!

Several of us just sitting around chatting.

Many other activities filled our afternoon/evening.

Most of us took a turn or two playing air hockey. Marty beat the socks off of me!

Denise and Bill. Denise won. Woo hoo!

I thought it was still too cold to get in the water, but the kids and teenagers didn't think so!

Erica's kids Riley and Cameron.

Katie didn't get in the water, but sure made some of us nervous with how close she got! Her mom (Denise) convinced her to lay down to watch the kids rather than stand and lean way over the dock. Whew!

Katie and Cameron.

Bethany had the right idea: just chillin' in the swing!

For a while there were several involved in a round of frisbie.

Heather's tosses sure weren't easy for Erica to catch.

As always the teenagers were able to convince Mitch they needed to ski and he was happy to take the boat out and drag them around.

All the kids LOVE riding in the front of the boat. Here are Katie, Bethany, Maggie, and Mathew.

Heather stayed up a long long time on the skis, and impressed me that she didn't fall a couple of times when the water seemed pretty rough. This was also the first time she was able to stay upright while the boat turned around. Go Heather!
