Yesterday we were invited to go with my parents, boating at Jordanelle. We had never been there and we were excited to go. My parents have had this boat for probably 10 ten years, and we normally go up to their place at Flaming Gorge, but since they sold it, we haven't really been boating. I have many fond memories off being all together, with my sister's family, boating and playing on the beach. We had so much fun yesterday! That was probably one of my top 3 favorite times we've been boating. Rick had a blast trying to stay on the tube (my dad LOVES to try to dump the riders) - he even taunted Grandpa by getting on his knees and "riding" the tube like a cowboy. Of course, he got dumped! Alex rode and rode and rode that tube. He was so exhausted, he could hardly pull himself back up on the tube after Grandpa dumped him. During his last ride, Alex stayed on the tube, even though Grandpa was trying his hardest to make him fall off. During his ride, he decided to taunt Grandpa by flipping around and riding backwards. It was so funny. Of course, he got dumped! Matthew was hilarious. He would try to get on the tube (from the back of the boat) while Rick would steady it, but he was so worried about telling Grandpa to go "only 5 miles an hour" that he'd forget to grab the handles, and he'd flip the tube over and land in the water. He would do this 4 or 5 times before he could finally stay on. It was SO funny. We were all laughing so hard - Grandpa had to hold his stomach and couldn't sit up straight! I just remember Matthew saying "Grandpa, only go 5 miles an hour, I'll know if you go faster!" You'll see pictures of all of this when you watch the slide show. Grandpa wants to sell their boat and we really don't want them to. Maybe they had so much fun yesterday they won't sell it! I LOVE SUMMER!!!!!
