Oh my gosh! We did it! We rented a pontoon boat and had an amazing (and sometimes scary) day on the lake. Hubby and I both acted as captain during the day, and we spent lots of time anchored and jumping in the water. We took a lunch in our cooler and had drinks and snacks and the company we rented from had life vests and noodles on board. It was a gorgeous day and we were glad to get out there and make sure we could handle boating on our own so when my mom and nephew come to stay with us in a couple of weeks we can take them out too!
Little Man's smile could not have been bigger!
Driving a boat where there are no clear paths or roads is such a weird feeling! And that except for NO WAKE zones there isn't a speed limit! Hubby was a lot happier to open the speed up than I was...I was a very scaredy cat driver! But I'm happy I did it and I look forward to getting better at it!

We had such a fun time visiting our friends in Georgia. We all drove to the town of Helen, GA, which is a town in the mountains that is completely German-themed. I can get the beer made in the town I lived in in Germany and food that tastes like I closed my eyes and wound up in Frankfurt. Seriously, we could break our stomachs eating the food is so good.
We've been friends with the parents since before any of the kids were born so they've known each other their whole lives and it's always such a good time getting together with them.
This trip we also did something new...river tubing! It was a great, winding trip down the river with some more wet parts at times.
To thank them for the idea, I came up with this little interactive card with a lady tubing down a river!

My sister was so sweet to host us while we were traveling through Jacksonville on our way to and back from Key West that I wanted to make sure to send her an extra special card. She LOVES tacos, and I remembered that SVGCuts had a taco truck box card design, so I sat down, whipped out my trusty Silhouette Cameo and started cutting out pieces. I love watching their assembly videos...Mary makes the assembly so easy to understand, AND it's like crafting with a fun friend...that you can rewind!
You may remember seeing other box card designs I've made...I have to say I love the dimensionality without having to worry about how I can ship them! It's a fun way to wow someone! Mary's designs are always super detailed too...the taco even has a vellum wrapper!! And can you see the headlights?!?!
