So yet another set of more pictures than anyone cares to see: an afternoon spent on the lake at the Christians house last Friday ...(Thank goodness for nice, nice people with boats and water to share in this heat!). Cort, Brigham, and Ross got to practice their skills on the wake skate, and board, while a very ripe and pregnant Shalaine, (one of the cutest pregnant women I've known), a moderately pregnant me, and a 2 month post- prego Jenn, enjoyed the very hot breeze on our faces from the boat. My little girl loved the ride and was the mellowest Sophia I've seen in some time. I think the triple-digit-heat, mixed with the hum of the boat, and the hot wind forcing her to close her eyes, made for a sort of a hypnotic state. I just relished in the fact that she was letting me hold her for such an extended period of time.
But all "hottest-place-in-the-world humor" aside, being on that lake when the sun sets, with the silhouette of the palm trees and the mountains in the distance, with some fun friends and my sweet family---really does give me reason to love this place. I mean it really can be gorgeous.
