Family, Dirty Water, Big Kid Toys, and A Lot of Sun





It's 11:00 at night and I am exhausted but....okay I fell asleep after writing that so now it is the next day and I am going to finish writing this post. Yesterday was such a fun day. Ricky's birthday is today and yesterday we celebrated by doing two of his favorite things in the world wakeboarding and jet skiing. We packed up the kids which felt like we were packing for a 7 day trip, prayed for them to be good and for no injuries, loaded up some friends and family and headed to the nasty, green, parasite infested Lake Elsinore. Despite the nasty water and a few nips on the legs from an unseen three-eyed fish the day was perfect. The boys boarded and rode the jet ski and played this crazy game which I guess you only understand the fun in if you're a boy. They all grouped together in one spot in the water and one of them would stand away from the group with a football and throw it to the group huddled together. Then they would push, shove, wrestle, drown, and jump on each other to try to catch the ball. They all looked like they were having fun and would come up from nearly being drowned by each other laughing. I have no idea how that is fun but hey, they're boys which means they're weird! We all had a great time and I even got on the wakeboard and the jet ski and managed to fall gracefully off of both and not make a complete fool of myself. The kids were well behaved for the most part and everyone had a lot of fun. The only problem is that today both Ricky and I have crispy skin because we didn't put sun block on and I was reminded that I am getting very old when I woke up this morning and could barely move because my body hurt all over.
   I tried to upload more pictures but after the fifteenth attempt, I almost punched a hole through the computer screen so I gave up. I apologize for the one stupid picture that now represents our entire trip, but I was not about to delete it after all that.

That day was so much fun... Thanks for trying out the jet ski first and encouraging me to take a ride on it! We need to go back!
