Since I reported on boating last, we have been to Rockport and back up to Hyrum. Rockport was filled with great company, Luke, the Platts, Hodlmairs, and Butlers. The water, however, was not great. The waves were ridiculous. We did have a wonderful time. Here is my friend Carrie wakeboarding like a champ:
And here's uncle Luke on the tube with the kids:
Hyrum was a blast, again. We were one of maybe 2 boats on the lake all morning. The water was like glass, perfect. We had Luke, my dad, and Debbie with us. It was such a great day!
As you can see, my kids LOVE the water. They have no trouble jumping right in and enjoying themselves...
...Something that you may not know about me is that I have a great fear of the water. Weird, I know. I am a boat owner and I am terrified of the water. I don't know how to swim. I am very comfortable wearing my life jacket and sitting in the middle of the boat. I thoroughly enjoy watching everyone else playing in the water. I would like to overcome this fear of mine though. And even though Luke and Chad think that I am stupid/annoying for being so afraid, I think that I made huge progress this trip. The purpose of this post is to give myself a little pat on the back. Baby steps! I got in the water eventually, and only for a minute, but I did it and I am proud of myself. Way to go me!
