|From Treasure Lake Fireworks July 4 2009|
The day before, her dad took us out on the lake on his boat. Jamie's aunt Beth was there too, and she had a death grip on my wrist for much of the ride. I guess she doesn't like sitting in the rear backwards-facing seats while the boat is tilted up 40° and looking down at the motor shredding the water. :) Turns out we had the better seats though, as Jamie and her sister were in the bow seats and got the amusement park white water rapids ride treatment as we hit someone else's wake in an unfortunate way. Then to add insult to injury, as we returned to the dock, apparently we were headed straight into a steady wind, and even at low speed it was blowing spray in some way that wrapped around and over the bow, showering the entire length of the boat. None of us were dressed to get wet.
