I must admit that this 4th of July weekend was not the most fun 4th of July weekend I've ever had. Personally I thinked it sucked a little!!! The weather pretty much ruined half of our weekend and the other half there just wasn't shit for us to do because the humidity sucked the life right out of us. The only positive thing was that we got to spend time together....which is always good and made up for the fact that everything else sucked ass!
We were supposed to take our boat out on the 4th but the weather fucked that up but we did get to spend the afternoon with Nat, Joe and the kids. Can't go wrong watching the three terrorists rip shit up!!!
And then today the weather was supposed to be nice so we thought "hey...yesterday was a bust lets take the boat out today." So we did. We waited for 45 minutes to launch the damn thing and then putted around for 20 minutes until Nat got there with the kids and loaded them on.
Here is where I learned four important lessons. Lessons that I will take with me for the rest of my days!
1. Never ever trust the fuckin weather douche holes!!! I already knew that but I was being optimistic!
2. Never and I mean never take a 9 month old out on a boat when she has had NO nap. Not a good idea...not a good idea at all. Apparently they turn into this whole other non human thing!! And then when it comes time for bed she throws herself around in the crib and terrorizes her poor little bear. Monster!!
3. When you see that the sky is black and the tornado sirens go off....it might be a good idea to head back to the dock. (This one is acutally Justin's lesson....when your wife tells you that she is having a panick attack because of said wall cloud get the hell back to the dock)
4. Flip flops are not a good thing to run in when you are trying to out run the typhoon that has just attacked you....plus I had one kid and Nat had two so we were trying real hard not to eat pavement and make it back to the truck for some kind of shelter from the bowling ball size rain that was pelting us.
And No.....we had not been swimming!!! This was a good part of the kids first boating experience...in the truck.
