A Dock Could Solve That Problem

The boat repairs took much longer than I would have liked.  We were disappointed that she wasn't ready when family visited VA in late July.  Still, we had a great time goofing like kids as we played up and down Nell & Lewis' riverfront lawn.  Hula hoops and corn hole games reignited competitive streaks.  Too funny.  Many needed to take Tylenol the next morning, given our ages.

Admittedly, the hardest thing about our boat repair adventure has been getting past the painful indigestion of its high cost.  Last weekend, I think my residual acid reflux may have finally settled down.  All it took was the pure joy of seeing a new generation learn to how to water ski and kneeboard along the gentle curves of the Corrotoman River.  Way to go, Parker and Madison, we're so proud of you!

Quickly proving that he's no slouch, sweet hubby hopped into the drink and absolutely carved it up.  Woo hoo, he's still got game!  What a blessing it is having our boat back in the water.  Time to make some wonderful new memories.  
Sure would be a lot easier to do so, if we didn't have to haul that big ol' boat by trailer each and every time.  (Hmmm... waterfront house, yeah that'll work!)
