We got the chance to go water skiing with our good friends: Mary, Molly, Maggie, and Jack. It was our first time water skiing - Me, Lucy, and Jarin - And we all did great!
Jarin has always been timid in water so I wasn't sure if he'd do it, but he was begging for a turn on the skis and had a great time on his first run. His second turn, the board went to the side, wobbled a bit, he went down, and drank some lake, which he didn't like.
Russ enjoyed the boat ride, he did get in the water with me, ate lots of food, took a nap, and drove the boat!
Lucy tried both the beginner and the intermediate skis. She took on water with the intermediate skis and decided to take a break, but with a little more practice, she'd have it. Later she rode the beginner skis several times.
She moved from outside the wake to inside the wake!
Lucy threw a late night party with her friends. They roasted woof'ums, played board games, played tag, and watched, Honey I Shrunk the Kids outside under the stars.
Some other highlights of this month sans pictures were a BBQ and pool party at Mary's, Surf n' Swim wave pool, Bountiful aquatic center, swim lessons, story time at the library, the Ogden Rodeo, and we lit off fireworks for Pioneer day on our street with friends and family. I also made 54 cups of raspberry freezer jam from our berry patch and some from Mary's berry patch. Only 4 weeks of summer left...let's finish strong!
