Lake Day with the Praise Team

Last weekend we had the opportunity to go to the lake with our Praise Team at church. It was such a fun afternoon. We are so thankful to Jay and Shannon (members of the praise team who invited all of us to their lake house) there were 26 of us there for the afternoon. What a blast we had. We jumped off boat houses, jet skied, water skied, relaxed on floats, ate... and much more. I however didn't take a single still picture but a lot of video clips. 
So without further ado here are a few clips from our day of fun. 
10 second clip of Daddy throwing Pierson off a boat house. (at Pierson's request by the way) The first time went great. The second time ended up being a belly buster... not so much fun. 

This one is Pierson learning to water ski. That may be a little bit of an overstatement but I was amazed at how well he did and the determination he had. 

Carson was so kind to Maylin. He kept jumping in with her and helped coax her off the boat house for the first time. He is such a sweet kid. This clip also shows the result of Pierson's belly buster... :o

This one is Adam's first go at water skiing. Snow skis are like second feet to him, but water skis were something he had never tried. This clip (even though he is hard to see) shows that there must be some similarities between the two because he hopped up and never looked back.

Maylin (my little dare devil) was a little timid about jumping. We were all shocked. But each time she jumped she ended up with a grin she didn't want to show off.

These video's are a little out of order. This was actually Pierson's first jump off the boat house. (Their first go round we insisted that they wear their life jackets just in case they panicked!) As you can see he was all smiles!
Teniah gave both of the kids a ride on the jet ski (along with several other adults at different times). It is safe to say that both of my kids are water bugs is a gross understatement. They both love to swim, love to go fast on water craft vehicles, and love to just be lazy bums in by the shore. My kind of kids!

Thanks Jay and Shannon for having all of us over! We had a great time!
