An afternoon at the lake!

Last Saturday we went out to the Trenton Lake. A bunch of our friends were camping at Macklin Bay for the weekend and we were invited to join them. We decided that instead of camping, we would just go out for awhile on Saturday & just hang out with everyone. It was a lot of fun even tho' the wind was horrible.

Kari, Jess, Britnee, Brian, Joe, Karla, Beth & Brody


Brody, Paige, Chance, Britnee & Peyton


Mindy & the kids playin' a mean game of tetherball!


I think she was trying to show them how to do jumping jacks...


All the kids playing


More tetherball!


Ok, this has got to be the funniest pic! I was also trying to show the kids how to do jumping jacks. (If I only exercised on a regular basis, I wouldn't have been so winded after this! LOL!)


And a' 1 and a' 2...


We had a fish fry that nite for supper. It was soooo good! Here, Karla & Gary are fryin' em up!


Paige & Peytie... best buds!


Paige is such a ham... she LOVES to have her picture taken.


Beth Ann... such an adorable diva!


Peyton had a blast on this little tractor... it was just her size & no petals - that was the best part!

Tee hee DG Teezers! The jumping jacks photo made me chuckle GREATLY! Funny stuff. Looks like a good time had by all--especially Mindy!

Oh yes, it was fun had by all, Dave! And Dave I am not sure if you would be proud of me for this or not, but I do have to tell the story. I was playing a racing game with the kids and that little Paige just kept winning! I finally couldn't handle it anymore so I just had to win once. Then the feeling was so amazing I wanted to do it again. And again and again and again.... but after one time Paige didn't want to play with me anymore. Is it sad that I was cheering about beating a little girl? Just a question to ponder today....
AND Sarah - thank you for inviting me - I did have a really good time!!

No, Mindy... you left the best part of the story out. I think the saddest thing about the tetherball game was not just that you beat her, but that you actually slapped her in the face with the ball!! Remember that Mindy? Ha Ha LMAO!! Oh... good times, good times! Never a dull moment when Mindy's around, Dave -never a dull moment... ;o)

Had a blast will have to pick a better weekend next year!

Mindy said...

OMG! I laughed so hard I may have peed a little! I completely forgot about knocking Paige in the face (an honest accident I swear!! SERIOUSLY!) That poor girl really took a beating from me. No wonder kids hate me!!!

MINDY~ Thats just mean knocking a lil girl down to win...jpjp look like a wonderful time for all of ya!!!! Sarah yes the jumping jack one was soooo funny!

Mindy Marie! What is wrong witchu?! Wait...I'm totally not surprised!

But tetherball? Really? Isn't that like volleyball for the disabled? And you were losing? And had to injure someone--a little girl--to actually win?

This is a delightful story. I need more of it!

BTW, speaking of volleyball for the disabled, I'm totes playing the vball with Mandy Howard this weekend in Hastings. Neat, huh? And I really feel like hitting someone in the face. I'll aim for the slow ones!

Dave - yeah I do think tetherball falls under the category of 'volleyball for the disabled' but I haven't played around here for awhile so technically I am disabled!
VB is great when you get to hit people in the face - I really am so jealous that you guys are going to be playing some court ball - disappointment right here on this girl's face! Hit someone for me - or better yet - take them out under the net! That's always fun! (I don't know where the meanness comes from!)
Sarah - and that pic of you doing your jumping jack - it must have been taken by a professional!?
