Tim's Birthday Outing...

Last Saturday was My Man's birthday so beings he loves being out on the water I planned a day of boating with just our little (?) family... We had been busy for awhile now and it seemed like we didn't get much time to be a family, so a few weeks before his birthday, I told Tim what I had planned. The day dawned a little cloudy and stormy so we didn't end up leaving until after lunch, but it was great anyway. We all did some swimming off the boat, the kids got to go tubing, and Tim trolled a little with his fishing pole... Our supper was hot dogs barbecued on the boat!  It ended up being a fun and relaxing day, just what we all needed!! Now for some picures:

My Rig

So a few months ago we started having issues with our rig.. Occassional bucking and loss of power.. Well we just kinda dealt with it.. Then a few weeks ago I went to leave and it wouldn't start.. The battery was dead.. Tim got it charged later, but then that weekend I went to head out again and the same thing.. Tyrel got it charged and so we were able to leave.. On the way home one day Tim stopped and had it tested.. the results came back that the battery and alternater were fine.. So Tim started googling possible reasons for that.. Looked like something was draining the battery so he tried all different things, unplugging this and that.. Still would be dead when we would try to start it.. I had to cancel a few things because of it, so I have been getting very frustrated!! Plus the bucking etc. was getting worse and worse.. So on Wednesday Tim got home from work early so he decided to bring it in to get a full diagnostics of it.. Weeelllllll...... they said the battery was completely gone (goes to show you can't always trust a first opinion) and it needed a tune up.. Tim bought the parts and changed them that evening.. Thursday we were able to pull the boat to the water and it was nice!! Such a relief to have it fixed (knock on wood..gonna take awhile for me to fully believe it's fine) and with 193,000 miles on it, it is sure nice that all that was wrong was the need for a tune up!

The Wedding

The wedding was beautiful.. Beautiful couple, beautiful setting, and yummy food!! The weather was a little on the warm side, but that is better than rain by far!! The only thing bad about the weekend was having issues with our rig, but I think we may have got that fixed, YAY!!! Anyway here are a few pictures of the wedding:
