|The air mattress before it completely deflated Friday night|
|Base camp - notice the satellite dish?|
The next morning the ladies, two youngest children (including the birthday girl), and two men set out in the boat. It was the smoothest I've ever seen the lake! I was afraid the water would be too cold to enjoy, but I was so wrong. We've had such hot weather that it was perfect.
We had one more group hit the water for about 2 hours, and then it was time for cake & presents. It was so much fun in spite of the heat (it was epic, ya'll!) and the air mattress fail on Friday night that led to the purchase on a new one Saturday night. We even had a raid by some wild animal before we got up Sunday morning that I slept through because a) I was exhausted b)the fan was blowing right on my head and c) if it didn't invade the tent or turn the fan off I didn't care what it did.
