Lake Fun

This weekend I went to the lake with some really fabulous friends. We had a great time! The highlights were hanging out on the boat, tubing, attempting to water ski, yummy food, and having time to catch up with friends. The lowlight was sticking a knife into my hand while trying to cut an avocado. For some reason, I am repeatedly uncoordinated when it comes to knives. The hand injury put a damper on my plans to reattempt skiing on Saturday, but I had fun on the boat anyway! Here are some pictures from the weekend:

Anna and I (I have been missing this girl!)

Matt and Rachel

Benjie and Jen

Lauren and Rachel relaxing in the lake

Trying to figure out how to tie the ski rope...

Lace and I with skis on - proof that I made an attempt (I actually made several attempts, and got pretty close to getting up a couple of times. Was planning to keep trying, but a knife through the hand thwarted those plans...)

Keely skiing (clearly, our guys were successful with the rope)

Getting ready to go tubing

Apparently I was having a good time! Not sure what Anna is thinking...

Tubing fun

Trying not to fall out!

Jen and Lacey's turn

Lauren chillin' on the boat

Benjie - our fearless captain. This is apparently his boat driving face.

Me and my wounded hand, right after having water poured into my burning eye (evidence that I was a good nurse and applied my sunscreen)

My fabulous small group friends - the dirty and exhausted version
(complete with typical Matt behavior)

**Update - If you want to check out some videos of wipe-outs from the weekend, check out Trey's blog. The best wipe-out of the weekend award definitely goes to Benjie, though, while he was slaloming on a broken ski. His foot came out and sent him flying like a ragdoll, which pretty much gave me (the only nurse on the boat) a heart attack. Fortunately, he was fine. Unfortunately, that moment was not captured for your viewing pleasure.
