Quail Lake With Friends

Note: I've been meaning to post about this for quite some time, but I'm just barely getting around to it. Sorry about that.
My friends and I have been talking about going boating at the lake for quite some time. Well, a couple of weeks ago, my good friend Camber, finally invited us to go! I was so excited!

That weekend, my friend, Kennedy, had to stay at my house for the weekend because her parents were gone on a cruise for the week. Anyways, on Friday night we were so excited that we were counting down the hours until we had to get up in the morning. Haha! We finally went to bed after long conversations about random things at one in the morning. {Shame on us!} Next thing we knew, the alarm clock was going off at 6:45 AM. 

We eventually got up, got dressed in our swimming suits, grabbed our life jackets, and headed out the door. We arrived to Camber's house around 7:30. That's when I saw Kenzie there too! We greeted each other with hugs, and got ready to leave.

After about 25 minutes, we finally arrived to the lake. This is when I started to get really excited. I haven't been boating for a couple years, so I know I was up for something awesome. We docked the boat, and before I knew it, we were out on the lake! The lake that we went to was called Quail Lake.

Unfortunately,  the skies started to look grey and gloomy. The waves were also really, really choppy which is not too good for wake boarding and tubing.

First we started off with wake boarding. Camber went first and then followed by Kennedy. After a while, it started to rain. :( So we had to dock the boat for a little bit until it stopped. We didn't wait too long until the sky had finally cleared up.

Once the skies were cleared up, we docked our boat onto the water once again. Now, we decided we would just go tubing for the rest of the time. So we buckled our life jackets and jumped onto the tube. Once he started that boat, lemme tell ya... it was INTENSE!!

I was holding on for dear life! Me and Kenzie were screaming the most because Kennedy and Camber considered themselves "pros". Psh. Anyways, after a while Camber and Kennedy eventually fell off after me and Kenzie. It was SO fun though! Although, the water was very choppy and not very smooth at all, we still had a blast!

When the rest of Camber's family came, we had to get off the boat because there wasn't enough room for everyone on one boat. We took the cooler with the food and laid our towels out on the dock. That's where we had a delicious lunch. :)

We put or feet in the water, and also found a random duck swimming near us. Haha!

Anyways, we came home that afternoon with blisters on our hands, aching bodies, and we were all very tired. But it was all worth it, and I would do it again any day! Good times, good memories.

Have you ever been boating or tubing?? If not, I totally recommend it!
