We went to the lake Tuesday afternoon as a family since my husband has the night shift this week. I guess I shouldn't have complained about him being gone at night, because at least we get to do some extra things together during the day before he goes to bed in the afternoon. It is rather easy having him gone at night as I sleep through it all while he prepares fields for tournaments. It is almost like there isn't a difference...well except my husband begged me to stop at Big Lots in Lewisville so he could store up on energy drinks.
He bought twenty-four cans of energy drink. This is a lot for the man that tells me to quit drinking my caffeine.
Grapevine Lake was absolutely spectacular! The water was just the right temperature for me, the kids and Lily. Even my husband jumped in and played a little. I was really surprised that Lily enjoyed the water as she hates taking a bath. However, there she was jumping in and dog paddling to me and my husband. She totally looked like a wet tailless rat.
Enough making fun of Lily though...my husband put her to work after she decided to dry off on all the clean towels and the picnic blanket. Lily in the end taught us some lessons for some good family fun:
The only thing that would have made the day better would have been tubing on the lake. The last time I went tubing was on Joe's Valley Reservoir in central Utah. Oh what fun it was to ride until I fell off! Well, at least it was better than these guys who had to be towed by another boat.
I'll just keep counting my blessings.
