This weekend was my birthday weekend, and although we had made plans ahead of time for my actual birthday on Sunday, we ended up having some other fun plans pop up at the last minute with some friends of ours here in Lakeway. The very first mom I met at the mom's group has turned out to become one of my closest friends here, and we do things probably 2-3 times a week with our kids. She has two boys, and they are sandwiched around the girls in age, with her oldest about a year older than the girls, and her youngest about 10 months younger than the girls, so they all get along really well! She and her husband own a boat and their neighborhood has its own boat ramp, so they invited us out on Saturday to spend some time with their family.
Since the girls had never been on a boat before, I was a little worried they might freak out once the engine revved and we gained some speed, but they loved it! Caroline (in pink) just closed her eyes and held out her hands, and Claire (in green) leaned back and stuck out her tongue.
