A few weeks ago we decided to go to the lake and hire a boat to take us around a bit and then go to a picnic spot for lunch. We invited R and her daughter and a relative to join us. It was a beautiful, peaceful day on the lake. Christiaan was out on the lake with some friends and a dad. We met up with them and others at the picnic spot. The other folks there had their boats as well and offered to take us skiing/tubing. The kids had a great time and I had a chance to water ski. For Ritha and her daughter and friend it was their first time ever out on the lake! It was so nice to get away for a while from the busyness and noisiness of our lives on the hill.
