Damien is 21!!!

Damien had the house to himself all week while we were out at Lake Powell, and it probably would have been fun if he wasn’t sick. He got a pretty cool gift today, we didn’t bother wrapping it.

Per his request, he wanted dinner at Famous Dave’s and invited only family over.

My son is 21!!!! First legal US drink 🍺

Petoonia

On Friday, August 4th, we picked up Petoonia, a 2018 Sun Tracker Party Barge 20 DLX. She is awesome! The very next day we spent a lot of time on the lake breaking her engine in.

Bartlett Lake

We decided to take our old boat out, since… well… why not? and join our friends on the lake. We went to Bartlett and that is such a nice lake and it’s not as busy as others we’ve been to.

We hung out with Camille, Randy, Karie, Steve, Marcia, Damon, Rose, Brendan and Berlin. The little fish were biting! If you had a mole or freckle, a fish would swim up and try to eat it!

There was only a couple of injuries, primarily regarding feet!

Pontoon 2

Jaime and I bought another pontoon bought today! How crazy are we?

It doesn’t come in for a few weeks.
