Spring is barely peeking its head out here in Utah. We've experienced an unusually damp spring, which is great for the water levels, but not for spring/summer activities. We're all trying to be patient (NOT an Anderson trait), but it's sometimes frustrating.
A few weeks ago, the weekend forecast called for highs in the 70s, so we jumped at the chance to take our first boat out for the first time. It was amazing! This shot below was taken at Pineview Reservoir--a local spot that isn't too far from our house.
Kailee on the other hand didn't like being out of control. She was a bit skeptical about being out on the water. Once she got used to it though, it was smooth sailing--or shall I say, speeding.
Rhett's a natural--you can tell he spent his childhood boating.
*LOVE* this image of Josh. This smile tells it all: it doesn't get better than this!
And this big kid? Well, he was daring enough to get out into the lake and try waterskiing for the first time. (Let me just say that I had to get in the water to load the boat onto the trailer, and it was NOT a pleasant temperature. This kid is brave! Way to go, Zack!)
Zack almost got up the second attempt, but his lips were turning blue. I told him that we'd try later. Can't believe he turns 13 next week. Happy birthday big kid!
Here's my weekend challenge to you. Hand over the camera! You know who you are, and it's okay that you love taking pictures. But if you don't hand over the camera, how will you show your kids that you were actually there and had a great time? Just do it!
Have a wonderful memorial day weekend!
