Labor Day Weekend Fun!

This Labor Day weekend has been filled with lots of family and fun! We got together with Marks sister Michele and her family as well as Marks mom (Nana). We went up to Marblehead, OH on Lake Erie and took their boat out onto the lake! We had a blast water skiiing, riding on the hot dog, and having tube wars! We missed Pops who is in Iraq right now but have posted a lot of pictures for him to see! We miss you and can't wait until next summer when you can come with us. But we're proud of what you are doing and know that it is important. We think of you everyday. We love you!!!

Aunt Michele and Natalie hanging out on the boat!

Riding on the JUMBO Dog!

Mark water skiing...he's good!

Me, Mackenzie, Nana, and Mark. Lance went a little crazy driving the boat and I went flying over the front of the JUMBO that happened I do not know...but I got run over by the dog and when I went to get back on I accidently tipped everyone else off of it! We were laughing so hard we couldn't get back up onto it!

Even Josh wanted a turn! He was so cute. Nana would wave to him from the back of the boat and he would lift his little hand and wave back.

Josh just loves his cousins! It is so nice to be so close to family again. We sure missed it when we lived in Idaho. Josh and Tyler were being way too cute I couldn't help but take a picture!

Lance showing off his wakeboarding skills!

Mark and Lance were stuntmen out there on the dog! They would switch places on it and stand up and go with no hands and they even got onto each others back!! They were tricky tricky boys! This particular time, as you can see, they got bucked off!

Cute Nana climbing back onto the boat after we had played on the beach for a little while!

Lance and Mark having tube wars! Pops we think you would of had a blast and come out the champ at this game!! However, because you weren't here...Mark is the reigning champ!

It is so nice you could be closer to family. That is really hard when they are far away. It looks like you guys had a really fun time. I love the water.
