In other news, Pink Moss has been LOVIN’ the warmer weather in July compared to June! July was spent at our cabin where it was much colder, especially in the water as we tried to play. Last Saturday we went boating and brought..well EVERYONE like usual. It’s a good thing our boat holds plenty of people because we use our space. We had 19 people on our boat! It is amazing that it can still stay afloat and pull people on toys.
True to my self, my camera battery died about 15 minutes into the trip so I didn’t have many pictures to choose from. I had to post the ones I had to give a glimpse of the fun time we had! I am so proud of all my girls for getting out there and tearing it up! A few years ago they were nervous, but now we have to beg them to get back into the boat!
We took the Leavitt’s and their good friends the Berooty’s (sp?). We also brought Whitney’s friend Angel and Sydney’s boyfriend Scott. He has become the house celebrity with all of the girls. He spent the afternoon throwing them off the boat.
I thought Jon had already given Scott the third degree, but this day proved to be the real test in his worthiness to date his daughter. Jon tortured Scott any chance he had. It was funny at first, and then it turned into another “Meet the Fockers”.
Once he was on the back of the boat and Jon pushed him off, another he was standing helping with Syd’s rope and Jon hit the gas! Scott pulled a quick Matrix move and literally laid back in half to avoid the rope close lining him. It skid up his chest and gave him a rope burn though!
Jon didn’t realize the rope would get him, but he just giggled when all 18 girls gave him the look of death! I couldn’t help but flash forward in my mind all the boyfriend beatings that would occur over the next 15 years. I couldn’t figure it out…was Jon mad? Was he playing hard because he is a boy?
I was rather shocked as Scott took it all with ease and big laughs,
*but I could see the revenge brewing in his eyes*.
Next thing I knew…he did it!
IT MEANING: HE PUSHED JON OFF THE BACK OF THE BOAT!
Now if you know Jon, you have an idea of how big of deal this is. He drives the boat, he rarely gets in unless he has to pee. He loathes cold water, or water that has a shock factor to it at all.
Sydney and I glanced at each other with a frantic stare and both lurched for the front of the boat! We are the only ones that fully understand what was on the horizon. Jon’s glasses came floating off and he climbed into the boat fully waterlogged.
All was quiet as Jon gave Scott an approving “YOUR dead” stare. I asked Jon later what THAT was all about and he simply said,
“I wanted to see if he was a wimp or not, and he passed the test.”
Heaven help me!
What a great time you all had. I love the shots, especially the sepia tone one. You have a great eye, even if a lame battery. 🙂 Stopping by from the #31DBBB. I know you're a little late, but no matter. Jump on in, the water's fine. Don't make all the rest of us go all Scott on you and push you! 🙂
Just over from SITS blog frog.
Your photos of a warm sunny July are making me so jealous! It's nice here today, but we've been having a lot of rain and cold winds in Scotland this summer.
I love the film Meet the Fockers, my Dad was like that with new boyfriends too!
Sounds like Jon got what was coming to him though!
Have a lovely day,
Stopping over from Blog Frog and the challenge. Love the look of your blog and the inclusion of so many wonderful pictures. Keep up the writing and the challenge. It's a lot of fun!.
Looks like ya'll had a great time.
Seeing your blog header and all your girls reminds me of my uncle who said he was going to have 5 girls before he was 40. He had 4, and after the 4th one, the doctor said his wife could not get pregnant again.
Stopping by from Blog Frog/SITS 31DBBB!
Sounds like everyone took it in stride thank goodness!
Stopping by from SITS 31 Day Blogging Challenge. You're not the only one who's behind!
I am sorry- by the way – to hear of your family's loss (you mentioned a funeral?)
Stopping by from the Pro Blogger challenge. Don't think I could pass the "wimp test" in your post but it did make me laugh. Have a great weekend.
Not only does this sound like you had a ton of fun but the whole boyfriend/dad story was just too funny. I have only one daughter and can't imagine how my husband is going to be when that time comes. I have a while she is only 4!.
Just stopping by from Blog Frog. I'm a new follower.
Stop by and say Hi if you like
Stopping by from 31DBBB and found your blog to be refreshingly delightful. You certainly have a beautiful family and as HOT as it is NYC, the water sports looked ever so inviting.
Hi there, I'm visiting from SITS 31 Day Blogging Challenge. I really love your summer shots – your family is so beautiful! Great blog design.
You girls are all so great! Thanks for your sweet words and encouragement! I think the reason I catch some good shots is because I take a million, narrow it down to a thousand, and only post hundreds….lol
Very funny! I know what u r saying…. U don't mess with Jon! Glad Scott passes the test! He is so cute. Doesn't it make u feel old when your daughter is old enough to date college guys…marriage pending…yikes!!!! Miss u!
Stopping by from a link Colleen posted.
I'm dreading the dating years! It's good that they both have a sense of humor!
You took some amazing shots and the view is killer!
