Fun In The Sun

One thing, probably the ONLY thing, I like about Summer is getting to go to the lake and play in the boat or on the jet ski's. We slather ourselves in Banana Boat Sunscreen for Kids. Initially this started out as a joke because it seemed like no matter which sunscreen I bought, they all burned Phillip's eyes and face. So i said "I'm gonna buy you baby sunblock! If that doesn't work I just don't know what will!" So then I did buy it and he used it and guess what? It works fantastic and doesn't burn our eyes. Go figure right?

Anyway, not too long ago we went out to the lake and had a really good time. Well, let me rephrase that. We lost Jonathon and Tyler once and then we lost Jonathon again lol. Both times due to slight mis-communication, nothing bad. After that, it was great. Everyone but me went tubing. I'm not a huge fan of water, so I don't get in the darn thing, but I LOVE the jet ski and since they were all tubing, I got to have lots of time on the jet ski without having to share lol.

Then I learned to drive the boat under a trial by fire type situation. Phillip jumped in the tube and said "pull me". I freaked out, muttered something about not wanting to kill him and then he told me what to do and I did it! And he's still ALIVE! I was pretty much terrified but it worked out well and now I can't wait to drive it again.

Anyway, no big news or anything to tell. We are getting ready for the family reunion this weekend which will be a lot of fun. I love seeing my family and showing off my fantastic kiddo's. It's a reunion for my Granny's side of the family so it will be a little sad in the fact that she won't be there. She died when I was a teen. I know she'd be very proud of me and my kids though and she always believed family was important. So despite the fact that I know very few of her relatives, we're going anyway. My uncles, aunts and cousins I haven't seen in forever will be there so that'll make it even more fun. I can't wait! Might even take the boat and jet ski's with us since it will be at a lake and we'll have free time.

Hope everyone else is having a wonderful summer!
