80 Degrees and Beautiful

We have been enjoying the beautiful weather here in Florida. For the past few days it's been around 80 and just gorgeous outside. Our family, who has been on vacation, left the beach early to spend their last day with us before heading back to cold Ohio. We had a great day...a busy day. After lunch we all headed out on the boat to Lake Dalhousie. Lake Dalhousie is a lake near our house that we always go wakeboarding on. It is spring feed and at certain points you can see the bottom pretty clearly. We try to go as often as we can and it usually isn't too hard to find more than willing friends to go with us...the boat may even be the reason we have friends. Just kidding. Sting'em even loves to go out on the boat. He loves to lay there and bask in the sun- a true Florida dog. I had to cut the trip short to go home and start cooking for the missionaries. So Sting'em (who was ready to go back home and take a nap) and I headed back home while everyone else got to stay a play a little longer in the sun.


If it was up to our little dog, Sting'em, he would spend all day outside enjoying the sun.

After the boat and feeding the hungry Elders, we took the family over to see some of our friends, the Shofkoms, in our ward who own horses. Vanessa and Isabella, our nieces, had never ridden horses before, or at least not since they were very little. And us, now living in the "country" part of Florida, there are many horses around. So we finished out the evening riding their horses Logan, Sugar, and Dollar.

It was a wonderful day. We were very thankful that Jeff, Rita, Vanessa, and Bella were able to spend the day with us before heading back home to chilly Ohio...brrrrr.

Lake Dalhousie was the first lake that we fell in love with in central Florida. It is awesome. I think that picture of Sting'em is just the cutest thing ever!

Sounds like you had a great time. I love the nice weather. Too bad it is really nice (80 degrees) in Vegas, but in about 1 1/2 months it turns into a burning oven!

That looked like a super fun day! Sting'em looks awesome in that picture, like he's the captain of the boat and he knows it!
