Here are the gals all lotioned up and ready to go.
Asher loved riding on the boat... and just wanted to jump around. Peyton loved eating her hat, and fell asleep both times we got on the boat.
This is her "happy smile" btw.
We started out with Ned and Wes on the tube. Their facial expressions were priceless. I really wish we had it on film. Butter-grip Ned was the first to let go. As he wiped out, Ella who was a little freaked out with the whole idea as it was, had a pretty traumatic moment! She thought Ned was lost to the world. She started sobbing and frantically screaming "daddy, daddy, Noooooo!!!!!!!" It was sad and hilarious at the same time.
After the spill, they switched to riding this way... which was equally funny.
Then, it was Asher's turn. He took it well. Ella came next, it was pretty much the same as when Ned wiped out. Only this time she yelled.... "He tricked me! Forrest tricked me!" Me, Kim and Heidi had a good laugh at that one.
After tubing for a while, we went back, bbq'd some wieners and corn. Hung out in the water for a bit. Then headed back out.
Peyton absolutely LOVED the water and wanted me to dunk her and throw her in. It was so cute and funny.
Here Forrest gave Wes, Ned and myself a crazy ride. We were all flying in the air. I swear at one point we got up like 6 feet. It felt like forever before the tube hit the water again. Too bad we didn't get any photos of that ride.
The best part of the day was that it was a 3 minute ride home. We had so much fun. And, are so grateful to have such great friends!!!!!!! Thanks again Hernandez's. :) Seriously, we had a blast!!!
