Boating fun!

These are photo's from last weekend's boating trip. We spent Thursday thru Sunday out at the cabin. It was very hot! I loved the warm nights, we would put Allyson in her jammies and go for a late night walk! We took the boat out on Saturday, it was again a super hot day, so we were thankful to be on the boat! Even the wind was warm.
We had an interesting trip! It started off with me sitting on my Tuna Fish sandwich!! That was a real treat! It was open face of course! So I had to whip my swim suit bottoms off and try to rinse the TUNA off in the river! So I got to enjoy lunch bottomless wrapped up in a towel!
Next Larry was trying to figure out a way to put up the beach umbrella when a strong wind came along and blew the open umbrella out into the water. He had to dive in and rescue it!
You would think at this point we would just hang it up and call it a day, but no! We were not going to give up that easily.
So after lunch we headed out for a ride to Rainier. Along the way, Larry thought it would be fun to chase a duck and see how fast this bird could fly??!! Well in doing this he loosened up a bolt for something in the engine causing it to make a knocking noise. Well we pulled over to the shore so that Larry could tighten this bolt. He had to tear the engine apart to get to it, but he managed to do so. Well after using a few sentence enhancing words (a line taken from Sponge Bob) he informed me that he dropped the bolt and could not reach it!
So to finish up this long story, we had to use the trolling motor from about the mouth of the Cowlitz River to the Kalama Marina. Which means that it took us 2 1/2 hours to get home! Larry told me "well you wanted to spend the whole day on the boat" and we did, we pulled into the Marina about 7:00 pm! It really was a great day even with all the mishaps! I was with Larry and Bug on the boat with the sun shining it really just doesn't get any better than that!
Today we are heading to Ellensburg so that Larry and our partener can wire the new commerical building we are having built there. Allyson and I are tagging along, so everyone have a good week and weekend!

County Fair Time!

At the beginning of this month, we met Beth, Justin, Amanda, Nancy, Papa and DeDe at the Cowlitz County Fair. This was Allyson's first time riding the rides. Much to my dissmay, she WAS tall enough to ride all the kiddy rides. She had such a great time. I could not believe she was having so much fun! Justin and Amanda rode the rides with her so that made me feel much better. We had such a great time! Thanks Bethie and kids for letting us tag along!

It's About Time!

Yes I know once again I have been slacking on my posting! So let me catch you up.

In July we got to take Allyson to her first Mariner game in Seattle. She did so well. She really enjoyed watching all the people and clapping when everyone else did. Let's just say not a lot of clapping going on though? Game was not to exciting, but we had great seats and great sunny weather. After the game we went to dinner in Seattle on Lake Union. We eat at this reasturant called "Joey's" let's just say the average looking person need not apply. All the employees were HOT and PERFECT. The food was so GOOD!
