Boating over the 4th of July

we went up to magician lake over the weekend of the 4th to do a little "borrowed" boating.  our friend's luke & michelle let us use their boat while they were out of town...thanks guys!  the weather ended up being perfect that day at least up in michigan (at home i was told we missed some big storms). 

we had a few boating ills - an unplugged battery, a missing plug, anchor issues, and finally another dead battery that resulted in a friendly tow fom passerbys :)  but in spite of it all, we actually had a wonderful time.  we packed our lunches and brought lots of drinks and managed to relax a  little. 

my dad was able to come along too which was nice.  it reminded me of all the good times we had growing up at the lake with our bass boat.  we used to go tubing and fishing and just cruising around on the lake. i have such sweet memories of those days.   derek and i want to share the same with our kids... we dream of owning our own boat one day :)
