4th of july weekend -- part 2

...continued from part 1.

The weekend fun continued on the river... houseboat & jet-ski style!

It was Lola's first boating trip and I'm pretty sure she loved it!

She jumped OFF the boat before we even left the dock though... she is fearless!! I'm used to Kosmo who won't leave Josh's side on the boat.

After a nice little ride, we docked at 12 Mile Island.

And the dogs were off like they owned the place!

It was nice to feel my toes in the sand, even if it was a muddy river instead of a crystal clear beach in front of me.

The dogs didn't seem to mind the dirt... the dirty Ohio was just fine with them.

After some swimming with the Boston Terriers, Josh and I took a little ride on the jet ski.

Everything was going swimmingly...

Until we went overboard.
And because I'm a genius, I forgot to strap the key to my wrist like you're supposed to and as soon as we fell off, the jet ski kept going by itself!

Luckily Josh is a fast swimmer (or maybe the jet ski is slow?) and he caught it! No harm done.

After that we let Josh drive :)

And that was our wonderful holiday weekend.

Happy Birthday, America.
Live it up.

From my little family to your's, hope you had an enjoyable weekend too.
