Jet Skiing is the BEST

So like I said, yesterday was TONS OF FUN!

Papa, Forrest, Elisa, and Owen went to Cougar on Wednesday and I got picked up on Thursday by Scott, Andy and Daniel. We got to the lake just as everyone else was getting there despite predictions of doom. :D

Daniel slipping on the slimy rocks.

Me getting ready to go out with Scott. Jet skiing is one of the best things ever! It's very different on a lake than on the river which is where we usually go. You can pull the gas all the way down and still want to go faster on the lake. It's very smooth, it feels like flying. :D

Andy trying out the stand up!

Elisa :)

Papa, Forrest, and Daniel each making weird faces. :D

The beautiful scenery!

I went out once by myself and went as fast as I possibly could on the sit down. It really wasn't fast enough...

After skiing Papa went to the cabin to start on dinner while the rest of us went hiking. :D We walked completely over the suspension bridge and all over slippery rocks and lots of cool stuff. Some of us obeyed the rules to stay on the trail. Note the "some".

By the time we got back to the truck it was getting dark. We drove to the cabin and had a fabulous dinner involving barbecued pork chops, mashed potatoes and gravy, and salad. YUM! Squirrel Nut Zippers was going on in the background. :D Thus, the song for today.

After dinner it was pretty late so Scott, Andy, Daniel, and I started home. Everyone else stayed another night and went jet skiing again today. :)
It was a nice drive home, Scott and I talked, Andy read, and Daniel slept.

I am very contented with that day. :D
