Drink a copious amount of beer.....Sure.
Eat copious amounts of food.....Why not.
Float copious amounts of time in the water, under the blazing 100 degree sun, till you have the most righteous tan lines EVAH on your face that make you look like you faceplanted in a dirt pile a month ago and decided not to wash your face since.....Yup. Did that. Done that. Currently sporting that!
The vacation was awesome. By far the best ever, besides my honeymoon. Of course.
Our friends Matt and Jess towed their bad-AZZ boat clear from TX, though Arkansas and Missouri construction filled curvy roads of death, to our little bitty cabin on Table Rock Lake. Needless to say, when they got there, they needed some refreshing beverages. Which we happily provided. Then a funny thing happened....we basically didn't stop drinking from that point on.
Just kidding. You can't sleep and drink at the same time. Duh.
Seriously, we're not a bunch of lushes, but we did put down a good amount of alcohol. Jess made the best Summer Beers. I made some delightful Bloody Mary's. This vacation was kickin'!

Oh, and the food. Holy mother of hungry monkey's. We had fajitas Friday; burgers, brats, salad and beans on Saturday; red beans and rice and cornbread on Sunday. Then many, MANY, snacks inbetween. It was endless. ENDLESS.
Anyways, on to what we did. Really we just boated, skied, wakeboarded, floated, drank, chatted, laughed, floated some more, drank some more, got sunburned, slept, then woke up and did it all over again. And of course played a little fetch with the little Wyatt. (Here ya go Cat!)
|Catching some air with that one!|
One day we went to what we call 'The Cliffs'. Some of the boys jumped off. I have before, but didn't feel like getting out of the boat.
|That would be Ryan jumping. Matt's waiting his turn.|
|Will and Jordan having some floating time.|
|It took some maneuvering to get on that raft, let me tell ya. That's why there's|
Jess, Matt, and I ALL holding him up.
|Too much boating...had to take a siesta.|
|Floating at our first stop in Full Moon Bay.|
|John and Lori's boat...cruising!|
The Doty's are just toodling along and their boat slips out of gear and won't start. Well, luckily we're right behind them, so we stop. Ends up we have to tow the boat to a semi-nearby marina. Boat is done. Poops. Capoot. But 2 of them hopped in with us, 2 hopped in with John, and their parents (the other 2 on the boat) went home to get the trailer and stuff. All in all, it could have been way worse, but it still sucked big blue donkey balls.
Well, we make it to Ahoy's to eat. Which was ok, not the best, but bar food and we were starving. By this point we are really behind in the time table. So we hurry off to the Tiki Bar. The LOOONNNGGGG awaited Tiki Bar with the BEST peach daiquiri's on the face of this earth.....And.....yup......they're closed.
|This is before I knew it was closed, otherwise that smile would NOT have|
been upon my face.
|Everyone that made it on the final lap of 'the cruise'.|
I think the group at our cabin has decided that 5 days just isn't enough, we need a full week. Weekend to weekend action. Yuppers. That just might suffice.
Oh, and something else totally insanely wonderfully fantastic happened on the 17th! My little nephew decided to come play in the big world!

I'm a new auntie!!!!
Copious amounts of fun had on that weekend! Lets do it again!
