Lake Day Last Sunday

So I am not posting pictures today but I had to get this story out (to my 5 or less blog readers).

Last Sunday Allen and I took my parents out on the boat after church. We took Muggs, Laci and Kaylen along with us. So, needless to say, we had our hands full! We had the jet ski out there as well.

Incident #1: We were all out in the lake floating around (with the snakes, kat). Allen was the last to get in the water and he decided the dogs would be fine on the boat without supervision (i would have put laci in her crate). Anyway, he gets back on the boat to find that Laci has torn into the choc. chip cookies and half of them were gone! That is a heck of a lot of chocolate for a little 5 pound dog!

Incident #2: My mom and I went out on the jetski and had a great time riding around. I let her drive and she did great. I told her that we should switch places because if Allen was going to gripe at one of us for barely bumping the boat, it might as well be me. Well what do you think happened? I barely bumped the boat (I really tried not to but i got nervous). Of course Allen yelled at me and made me feel stupid. So I got all upset at him because I knew he would do that! Anyway, so that put me in a bad mood.

Incident #3: #2 led to #3 happening. I was annoyed at Allen and so I wasnt in the best of moods but i wanted to have fun on my way in. So my mom and I were on the jetski again and we were right at the boat mart (where our boat lives) and I was doing doughnuts. We were going slow - my mom and i still have no idea how this happened. It felt like slow motion to us as well. My mom said she was going off. I didnt want to hit her with the jetski and she was pulling me with her anyway so i started scooting back but I was connected to the jetski key so i pulled the jetski with me... you guessed where this is going yet? You would be right if you guessed that the jetski ended upside down in the water. We have never done this after 2 summers of use! So since I had no idea that there was a right and a wrong way to flip a jetski back over... which way did i choose? The WRONG way!!!!!!! Of course! If there is an option between two paths I would choose the wrong one! that is just like me! Anyway, the estimate to fix the sucker? $500! Yikes - that was one expensive mistake! Luckily we ended up replacing the spark plugs for $12 and it was fine. Shew! Bad news: I lost my shirt, shorts, cover up, sunglasses, and Allen's hat to the bottom of Lake Guntersville! you cant see an inch in front of your face in that lake! So there was no way in the world i would ever see any of those items again and i really loved them! Sad!

Hey you are lucky with little Laci. Our family dog ate brownies and died! Ah! Not even joking it's the truth.

It seems like when any of us are at the lake- not even together-that SOMETHING has to happen. Wouldn't be a lake day without some drama. :)Hope the snakes were nice to you in the lake. :)

We may have rolled the thing but we had a blast. It was a fun day even with the drama. We just like to keep things interesting so we have a good story to tell.
