July 6th - 8th: Lake House Weekend

We spent last weekend at the Lake House with the Larsons and Bellitos, Mom, Dad and Kelsey. We had beautiful weather the entire time, and had so much fun out on the boat.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of our evening playing Cranium - of Matt trying to hum "Love Shack", of Jeff firing the Love Bazooka, of Rob spelling Mississippi, of the girls winning... But here's what I did catch:

A view of the house from the lake.

Getting started...

Rob slaloming like a pro.

Matt tearing up the wake (definitely the most entertaining skier!)

Becky's tattoo, which was beautiful.

Jeff coming in from a great run... on Dad's ski!

He even remembered to tuck his head when he fell.

Kelsey loved hanging out with the girls, and we loved having her there.

Becki's surprising stunt - over the wake and back for the first time, and she stayed up like a champ!

Becki and Matt Bellito

Becky and Jeff Larson

Dad and Rob enjoying the show that either Matt or Jeff are probably putting on at the moment...

The girls (Me and "the Beckies")

Unfortunately we had a freak accident during the weekend... When many people slalom, they start out getting up on 2 skis and then they drop one. The risk you run is that when you drop that 2nd ski, you have to leave it floating out in the lake until the skier is done slaloming. When we went back to pick up the ski Rob kicked, this is how we found it. A boat had obviously driven right over it - and probably did a number on their prop too.

The upside: we have 1/2 a ski boot to make a new family trophy out of!

Rob and I with the casualty.

Favorite group picture! (Jeff, Becky, Rob, Me, Matt and Becki - just before we left to go home)

Thanks for the great weekend guys! It was special for so many reasons (...you know why!)

We love you.
