Memorial Day

We had a good Memorial Day with sunny weather. First everyone ran a practice 5K. Look at all those new shoes! Everyone was back in under 38 minutes. For one it was the first practice, for the others (except Adam) it was the second practice.

We headed to the bay with the jet ski and kayaks.
We rented a paddleboard for four hours. Everyone had a try. Yes, I was able to get up on it.

Adam had the most trouble balancing. For all his athlete ability, he does not have good balance. He also runs into things a lot!

We pulled everyone behind the jet ski on assorted inflatables.

And we had watermelon--except me because I don't care for it. But we also had steak, chips and smores!
These two disappeared with the kayaks for a while and came back covered with wet sand. If they weren't both so mature, I'd think they'd gotten into a sand fight somewhere : )
Um, did I really say mature???

So, what did all of you do for Memorial Day? Someone please leave a comment! It's been too quiet on here. I made it so you can post comments without being signed into any program, but if I start getting all the spams, I'll have to change it back.

Looks like fun!

I've been looking into used kayaks because we love to spend time at the water all summer. :)

We spent a day at the beach on Saturday ... 1 son got baptized on Sunday ... and we had lunch with friends on Monday. But ... the most fun was that our son and his family (our new grandson) came to visit for 4 1/2 days. We were BLESSED by our time with them!!!

We love our kayaks and we got a good price at Sam's Club (no longer a member). We had to get a kind that wouldn't tip over in the waves. We've even paddled down the street when we flood due to a tropical
depression : )

PS a child getting baptizes makes it all worth it.
