A weekend at the lake

This past weekend my family went to the lake. The weather was beautiful!!! (see picture below)



After we got the boat all covered and ran for cover the rain slowed a little. Luckily we had a cabin for the weekend because the weather pretty much stayed the same.

When there was a break in the clouds my husband and a friend of ours took the boys out in the boat. The lake was extremely shallow. At one point the depth finder went from 12 feet to 1 foot in a matter of seconds, sadly not long enough to raise the prop. So you ask, what happens when the lake is only one foot deep and did I mention there was a large boulder on the bottom.......(see picture below)



Thankfully we had another prop. After the boating incident my hubby was getting something from the truck, before locking the truck he checked his pocket. yup keys are there, so he locked the truck up. DOH! that would be the boat keys in his pocket, now we were locked out of the truck. (See picture below)



Eventually we did see the sun, so we went out for another boat ride, carefully this time. Here is a cool shot of the lake I got.



Just when I thought nothing else bad could happen.... I got stung in the face by a wasp! Nice! (No picture)

All and all it was an eventful trip, it wasn't all bad though, we were there with great friends and made the best of our rainy weekend. Here are a few other shots I got.










I'm really going to try harder to start blogging more often, I am going to start tomorrow by going to visit everyones blogs and see what you have all been up to.

Lovely weekend! (Ever since I locked the truck keys in the truck my wife has carried her key with her. Interesting how pissed off she was!!)

But you did get some nice photos.

Great to see a man locking the
keys in the car! Glad you had
fun, inspite of the weather.

Pictures awesome as usual.

Well, I'm glad some of it was fun despite the minor setbacks!

Beautiful pictures, of course. Clouds on the lake and the first shot of the foggy boats are my favorites.
