A friend that I work with invited us over to her house for a day of fun on the lake. She has quite a few toys!
The girls' decided to start out in the paddle boat & the 3 of us ladies took out the kayaks. I have never kayaked & have wanted to try for a long time. I wasn't sure if my lower back could withstand the sitting position, but soon found out it wasn't a problem at all. We went around the whole lake......can I just say that I've found another form of exercise I actually enjoy?? What a great upper body workout!
So while we're kayaking, the girls are following us in the paddle boat. We made it about halfway around when they headed back because their legs were so tired from paddling.....and they said they were being chased by a bee!
When we returned, it was the girls' turn to try their skills at kayaking......
Dani figured it out right away..
...making her way to the middle of the lake in no time. It's a very shallow lake, except in the very middle.
Kylie on the other hand.....
...took a little longer to get the hang of paddling & steering.....
....finally figuring out that she could put her paddle on the bottom of the lake & push. She eventually made her way out past the dock.
When they both found their way back in we took a ride on the jet ski. I was the driver & the girls sat behind me, laughing & screaming the whole time. What a blast! So since I was driving - there were no pictures of that adventure.
We took a break for lunch & then my friends' had to leave, but Wanda told the 3 of us to go out & play some more...needless to say, we didn't need to be told twice.
We all jumped into a kayak & headed out, Kylie getting better & better at her paddling & steering skills. Dani & I had a race to the neighbors raft = we pretty much tied, but decided the race was finished when we made it to the raft.....and took our time getting back to Kylie. We took a leisurely tour around the lake & then took some pictures.
Me & Kylie.
Me & Dani.
We tried to do a shot of all 3 of us, but almost tipped over. Not a good idea with a camera in hand.
So as the clouds started to come in, we decided it was time to end our day of fun on the lake........
....but we carry with us the memories of so much fun & a great week together.
I wish summer didn't have to come to an end......it's not over yet, but it will be before we know it.
