What a Day!

We woke up early this morning and jumped in the car to head over to Lake James with our friends Bill and Kelly and their 3 boys: Three, Connor and Hayes. Man, did we have a blast! After taking the boat into a little inlet and swimming for a while they busted out the tube and Henry was psyched to go first. He wasn't scared at all (which is more than I can say for myself) and kept giving the thumbs up to go faster and faster while I yelled at Bill not to listen to him.




We didn't get photographic evidence of his fancy moves intended to give his poor mother a heart attack, like letting go with both hands and turning around to face backwards in the tube. Sheesh.

Three, much like myself, was not quite so sure about the whole getting-dragged-behind-a-boat thing...



We swam away the afternoon and got fairly impressive sunburns, the lot of us. Kyle and I couldn't stop talking about how lucky we are to live in such an amazingly beautiful place.




That first one in Henry's.

I'm thinking about starting to dabble in a little video blogging to take the camera on this new laptop for a spin. Is there anything you folks would be particularly interested in seeing a video blog entry about? I'm going to feel like a total dork doing it so any input from the peanut gallery would be much appreciated.

I'd like a tour of the new house! If not the whole house mayby your Cranypants headquarters?

Yes, Crankypants headquarters would be a great idea!

Well, unless you feel you have to clean it all up just to make it video worthy.
