We headed to the Lake Saturday morning with the Whelan family and Ingram was bound and determined to ride in the car with Collin. We rearranged kids and headed off on our journey with Madison and Emily in our car and Lindsey, Collin, and Ingram in the Whelan's car. Even though Ingram was in a separate car, , he hollered out the traditional "BBBOOOAAATTT!" as soon as he saw the first boat to let them know that they were now at the Lake. Some things never change and it sure was funny to hear their recap of the ride!
Once we hit the water, everyone wanted to head to the cliffs and jump; all five of the kids jumped off several times and then our water daredevil begged Daddy to let her jump from the stump! I held my breath for her while she got ready and shooting off she went into the water. After cliff jumping, everyone tubed and had a great time! Madison and Emily got the biggest air on the tube and then Lindsey, Collin, and Ingram unintentionally got a pretty big air too. Daddy is very lucky no one got hurt because he would have been in some serious trouble! Our kids wanted to teach Emily and Collin how to wake board and knee board; knee boarding was super easy for them, but wake boarding is just hard to learn for everyone! Amy and Tim tried out the tube, knee board, and skis, it was time to head home since it was already getting dark.
After a long day on the lake, we were all ready for some serious food, but we wound up at Waffle House. Don't get me wrong; we love eating at Waffle House, but it was almost 9pm and freezing cold inside! Luckily, we had some long sleeves and blankets in the cars and we brought them inside to keep warm from the icy blast of the air conditioners. I'm pretty sure both cars of kids fell asleep in record time and had dreams of donuts behind the boat all night long!
