Wow, a long time between blogs

Well we finally bit the bullet and bought a boat. It will not win any beauty contests, but it will hopefully provide good memories for our boys. We got it really cheap, it is a 15 foot 1974 Glastron. We took it out 2 weekends ago for the 1st time. Here is a VERY crowded boat. lol

I don't know if you can see everyone or not, but it's first time off the dock we had Dustin, myself, our friend Hollis, his son Clayton, my 2 nephews H & C, and our 3 boys

On the way to the lake it started raining and I mean pouring!!! We waited it out for almost an hour and a half. It finally let up and we went out. We were still out and it let go again. I mean poured on us. My mom took this picture and I think you can see how completely drenched everyone got and how hard it was raining. It was a lot of fun though.

Here is a picture of the boat trailered. Like I said not a beauty, but it is perfect for us. It goes 30+ mph and is strong enough for us to ski behind.

It has been raining so much here lately (like everyday at some point for almost 4 weeks). I don't know if that is the cause, but I have been in such a funk lately...thus the no blog for 1 month almost. We were driving back from Austin on Sunday and we saw the most beautiful rainbow. I couldn't get the whole thing in a picture, but you could see where it touched the ground on both sides. It was amazing and even had a shadow rainbow as well (a 2nd rainbow that wasn't nearly as bright). You could see each of the colors clearly. It was just what I needed, it was like God reached out and said "I am here and I do care"

Hey girl, welcome to my world!! LOL!! The rain is finally starting to let up some here and we're having some warm days. Today it was 80! Woo hoo! In a couple days though it will be back in the 60's and raining!

Anyway, I'm sorry you've been in a funk, I think it's directly related to the weather. I know I'm a much happier person on the sunny days. That's one of the reasons why I'm ready to come home!!
