Summertime Fun

We have been blessed with some beautiful weather, so we've been spending all our time on the lake.  Now that Tony finally started skiing, I can't keep him off the ski's and it turns out my son is a chip off the ole' block - he's a natural waterskiing demon!

Even though she prefers to wakeboard, we talked Chablis into skiing a little...

Louie even got out there.  Not bad for a guy who hasn't skiied in a few years.

And I NEVER have to be asked twice - I am the original waterskiing hot dog in this family!

After spending the day skiing, we hit our favorite bay at 6 pm for some white bass fishing.  Abby caught a nice one on her first cast and there was no stopping her after that.  She does really good for a 7 year old.

I have to say the fish were really jumping!  We were catching them like crazy and Louie had all he could do to keep up with us.  It was his job to take the fish off the hooks and get them in to the live well.

Apparently Abby had a great time!

Our friends from down the street followed us out in their boat.  They had never fished for white bass before but they caught on very quickly.

After filling our live wells and coolers with fish, we headed back to our dock to clean them.  All the guys helped, including Cameron who got to try his hand at filleting a fish with an electric knife like Louie does it.

Afterwards we started a campfire and roasted hot dogs and polish sausage.  After catching all those fish, we were starving!

It was a perfect way to end the day!
