Fun in the Sun

Our manager rented jet skis for all the guys so that they could have a day to play. It was actually an incentive that they earned a while back that never seemed to work out before since it's always raining here. But today was a beautiful day, so we drove down to Clear Lake and got to ride jet skis for a while.

No, Caleb didn't actually get to ride the jet ski, but I think he found sitting on it just as exhilarating. Actually, given his natural tendency to cry when he gets scared and his mild dislike (or maybe just distrust) of the water, he probably liked sitting on the stationary jet ski way better than riding one.

We did take him in the pool -- the jet ski place was attached to the Hilton, so while the guys took turns riding, everyone else hung out by the poolside. He did better at the pool this time then the last time we took him. Granted, this pool was a lot warmer than the one at our complex was back in May when we went. So he did a little better. Lasted several minutes even. But then decided it wasn't for him. Oh well. There's still hopes that he could be a basketball star. We'll just have to find another way to get him tan (though having inherited his mommy's olive skin, that shouldn't be too hard).

In all honesty, I thought jet skiing was a little nervewracking. I'm sure if I'd had more time to get accustomed to it, I would have been fine, but we only had them for a limited amount of time, so I let Brandon go out without me after a while. He had a lot of fun. And maybe one day we'll be rich and can buy our own for non-stop family fun.

Is Brandon holding Caleb in his hand or how is it that Caleb is standing there by himself? Magic! I'm glad you guys had a good time and they finally made good on their jetski date. Anxiously awaiting your arrival back home!!!!
