Canyon Lake Trip 1

My brother, Jason, bought a boat recently and we were invited to be a part of his first boat-owner-trip-to-the-lake.
Canyon Lake was picked because they had RV set-ups right off the lake and because of it being Spring Break, my parents had planned on camping.
They are making it tradition to take the grandkids on RV campouts and my boys have LOVED them!!

Jason, Kevin, Katie, Shannon, and Allan all braved the chilly night, sleeping in the boat.

Grammy, Griffin, Kai, Lukas and Treyson all slept in the tent while Grandpa, Celynda, and Brooklyn were cozy in the RV. Well... as cozy as an RV could be.

For the most part, the boys were happy on the shore, making shadows and throwing rocks.

I designated myself to being photographer on the boat.
Here's Kevin:
The water was SO cold, thus Katie's face:


Shannon did a marvelous job being flag girl:
...And this is my favorite photo of the trip:

We worked hard, convincing Griffin to go out on the tube with Allan. "You won't get wet Griff. Jason will drive slow and you'll just stay on top. Come on! Be brave! It'll be fun!"
We finally got him out on it:
But slow boat driving + Allan forgetting to pull up on front of tube = water coming up over the front and practically forcing them to let go for fear of drowning.
Griffin was NOT happy about the cold water:
He still went on a short ride but insists that it was not fun at all.

It's going to be awesome having a boat owner in the family. I look forward to many pictures like the one seen above. :)

Jason in the sleeping bag, the back of Treyson and Katie funny face from the cold water. Those are my favorites! Nice work with your camera Carolyn!
