oh, gentle reader, it is most assuredly that time of year.
what time of year? you maybe asking...it's the time of year that it's time to take the boats off magic lake. i truly dislike this time of year, for sure.
especially this year...we had such a funky summer and it seemed so short...plus, we weren't able to put our boats onto magic lake until about the 4th of july...so that made our boating season extremely short this year...boo!!!!
and no, gentle reader, i have not forgotten to wrap up the republica dominica trip...that post is still coming, i promise!!!
here is our weekend wrap up:
i was the first to arrive...i unloaded sister, hell hound and the rest o' the crap...which consisted of over night bags and groceries...and awaited the arrival of my tribe!
once the tribe arrived, we decided we needed to make a trip around magic lake on hee haw...because it was still a tad chilly to be taking the moomba out!
we didn't even uncover the moomba on saturday! we took a few trips around on hee haw, started supper and hung out!
let me tell you, gentle reader...sister is nothing but full of personality!!! and she loves to have her tummy rubbed...and she has no problem letting you know that you have fallen down in your duties!
kiroman was up bright and early sunday morning and he snapped this photo and the next two. annnd, as i look at them, i can see that i have posted them completely backwards...oh well...at least they are posted!
soooo...later sunday, it kinda sorta warmed up. kirogirl wanted to get on that wake board one more time. kiroman said that if she went, he'd go but she had to get in first! the water was a chill 72* and the air temp wasn't much warmer. she really did get in. and she really did knock it a few times around the lake. she was freezing by the time she was done...it's a good thing i brought a dozen towels along!

kirogirl was a little disappointed that i failed to get her complete "up"...whoopsie!
how cool is this photo? kirogirl was sleeping when we headed to the city. we had a few things to pick up that we didn't know we needed until we got to magic lake...and she snapped this pic while she was waiting for us to get back.
and, that, gentle reader, is the wrap of the end of the boating season at magic lake.
stay tuned for snow mobile and ice skating season...as soon as weather permits...we will be ice skating and maybe playing a little pond hockey...and of course, there is snow mobiling to be done!
i am grateful:
- to have driven both boats onto their trailers without wrecking anything! whew!
- to have great weather to end our boating season
- to have had great weather to load the boats [ we've done it in the cold rain previously...no fun ]
- to have had the weekend with kiroman and kirogirl
- to have photos to document our weekend!
just breathing isn't living!
