You should have heard Mr. Chris and our daughter laughing as the boat pulled the tube across the lake.  As the velocity increased, so did the volume of their screams of delight. Our summer is coming to a close as more kids and teachers are going back to school. We want to take a moment to wish everyone a year full of learning, creativity and FUN! 

As always, we look forward to watching the glow grow brighter with the many stories and words we can share together!

Floating along the water, we saw different types of boats. There were speed boats, yachts, row boats, fishing boats and even a few kayaks. All these boats serve a purpose. This fishing trawler pictured above was for...you guessed it. Fishing! See those nets? Those are thrown out and dragged along at different depths behind the boat to catch fish.
