Weekend of Camping and Boating!

I'm Back!!! I've been out of the bloggy world for almost a week now and I was starting to have with-drawls! haha

Last week I had Thurs-Sunday off, so Josh and I were able to join my family and our friends for my parents annual lake trip that they host for their company! It is by far my favorite trip of the summer!

So on Thursday Josh and I headed home to Livermore and picked up my brother from my parents house and then embarked on our journey! When we arrived at the check in gates we saw a hilarious Motor Home Fail - note the sign.
Once we squeezed by the stupid motorhome we headed toward our group camp and along the way we found a sweet whale!
flying whale!
Camp!
Camp!
Clay and Josh then set up their tent (I slept in the motorhome with my parents :) )
Then we hung out and waited for my parents to come back in from boating. Josh forgot a book to read so I loaned him The Time Traveler's Wife haha
Over the course of the weekend we spent a lot of time out on the water :)
Enjoyed a lot of pretty sunsets!
And did some fun water sports!

Clay getting ready to Sumo Tube!

vroom vroom!

then it was my turn!
fun stuff!
Joshy and I hanging out in camp!
We also went out on our daily Floatilla (where we all tie the boats off together and float in the water)
On Saturday we met up with some friends who had a house boat!
My Mom floatin' :)

Our friend's little boy Levi riding in our boat!
The boat!
Then on Sunday it was time to pack up!
my Dad's friend Stan found a Toad in the wood pile!
And the boys hung out with the dogs while we waited to leave
Then it was back on the road home :(
We helped my Dad put the toys away and unload the motorhome
Then we said goodbye to my brother Kevin who was leaving for college - Go Boise State!
And then Josh crashed and took a long nap!
It was an AWESOME weekend and I am so thankful that I was able to get the time off of work to join my family and friends. We had a blast!

ANNND I managed to stay sunburn free until the last day when I switched from No-Ad Sunscreen to Coppertone- so a word to the wise - if you are boating avoid Coppertone! It washes off!!!


Now it is back to work, but at least I have some sun to show off finally :)

I love camping, Mr. Pickle, not so much! Where did you guys go camping? I have never heard/seen sumo tubing before. Looks like fun!

Sarah Ann said...

Oh.my.gosh. That houseboat picture with the guy flying off it is hilarious! I was thinking, "Wait, is that a person?!" Haha, too funny.
And I'm pretty sure that I've been to that lake, but considering how many are up in NorCal and how many I've been to I'm not so sure which it is. My parents used to take us camping every summer to Lake Camanche for a week long trip, and we still take day trips to Lake Hogan and Berryessa in the summer!
