My parents' very good friends own a great big cabin right on the water at a nearby lake, so once a year my mom and dad borrow the cabin for a weekend in August and invite all the kids and their families to come out.

My sister in law brought up their boat, so we had fun out on the water. Artoo liked bumping on all the waves, but mostly he liked pretending to drive the boat when people were getting in and out of the water on the tube or the knee board.

Chewie was very brave this year, and went out on the tube with his cousin Kody, who was very patient because Chewie wanted to go pretty slowly, and Kody's a pro.
Once the boys all got to the lake, there were more adults around for child minding and for boat driving, so my sister in law kindly taught me how to kneeboard. I wouldn't say i'm going to become a professional kneeboarder anytime soon, but i did get up onto the board.
|So much laughing|
Pam, on the left, is laughing at me, on the right, because i couldn't get the strap up over my knees because i was sitting on it. There was a lot of laughter, and a lot of her spraying water into my face with her board. Good times.

Weekly Challenge #181: "Water"
Seeing as i spent the last five days in the water, i thought it'd be a good theme for a challenge this week.
|i smashed my right hand into the boat this weekend, my lines are all wonky, but i think it adds to the texture. ;)|
How will 'water' inspire you? Watery tangles? Watery colours? watercolours? water rings?
Have a great week!
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will put it in the slideshow. (send submissions to: weeklychallenge at mail.com) [not gmail, just mail]. I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine. - although to be honest the deadline is pretty forgiving.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
