Water skiing, hiking in a dry county

Yesterday and today were great days, though hot. We water-skied and tubed behind the Mary Jane, The Klausing’s boat; Jean got up almost right away, having done that quite a bit in her youth, while I ha less luck. Jimmy even got a chance to show off his “mad skills” while Bethany drove.
The fun day tired out the kids as usual, laying them out asleep on the deck of the boat house before we made it back up.
Today we took a break from the lakehouse in the morning, going to see the Wolf Creek Dam and same fishery, complete with walkthrougj and accompanying movie, which the kids enjoyed.
Mom treated us to lunch at the Lure Lodge, after which Jean and I took the kids on a hike and to the store to get fixins for tacos and tomorrow night’s dinner. As we were leaving the store we realized we had forgotten the beer and wine; turns out it’s a dry county and there isn’t a wet one for three counties over. We survived, but perhaps only because we had Derby Pie (from the Lure Lodge) with icecream.
Tomorrow we’re taking the kids fishing; that should be a blast:)
