the cocktail cruise {sparkling glass}

the cocktail cruise.
every night after dinner.
with your drink of choice.
although by the last night i was wishing i had brought no drink b/c i spent the entire time giving my drink {red, might i add} to everyone but myself.
strawberry jarritos.
not very relaxing.
but intermitently tasty.
lesson learned:
do not bring personal drink on cocktail cruise in the future.
there will be nothing personal about it.
despite the drink charade,
the cocktail cruise is my most favorite part of the day.
all cozied up in sweatshirts and pajama pants.
admiring the houses and campers around the lake.
with the sun setting.
and the moon starting to shine down.
making the lake glow like sparkling glass.

 and here my friends is my parent's lake house:
 just kidding!!!
this is what is fondly referred to as the
"miami vice"
you can see why.
wish we could have seen it when a party was going on.
i wonder if anyone wears white suits with tourqoise green shirts when they go to a party there.
i definitely would
so hot right now.
and of course,
no boating trip would be complete without a good pee off the back of the boat. 
a DAILY occurance.

and that was just the first day.

Awww... Your children look so happy in all of those photos! I especially love the one where Max is looking off the side... and the one with Brennan's shorts down... and the one of you and Max's eyes... oh and all of them! How very fun.

One of Kevin's co-workers said something a guy had to do before settling down and getting married was to pee off the back of a boat in a different country. I think that's going to be Brennan's ultimate goal in his future ;)

LOL! I love that pic of the baby gripping the rail on the boat!
And my sister just came back from vacation in northern Wisc and posted a pic of her son peeing of the edge of a dock. What is up with boys and water??!
