Wednesday night, I was still in an awful lot of pain and was taking two Oxycontin's every three hours with two Advil's every 4 hours. Nothing was taking the edge off the pain. Thankfully, Spry started to see that Thursday was not going to happen for me, and that Friday would be a stretch. He realized that there was nothing about this weekend that would be fun for me. My mom talked to him and offered to "take" me and Dives for the weekend so that he could go to the lake with Bug. I love Spry for saying okay. I know he really wanted me to go, but I'm so thankful that he understood that I would have been going only for him. And let's be honest, how much of a downer would I have been to the whole group?!?
Thursday night Spry came home from work and packed their stuff. Nanny put together all of Bug's stuff. They set off to the lake leaving me with my parents.
Friday morning, they got up early and headed out to the lake. The lake was so smooth. The sky was a bit grey still, from the storms the night before. Bug jumped in with Spry but decided it was WAY too cold.
Because the lake is still pretty low, they have to drive the boat out a ways before they can take it off the trailer. They have this monster truck to help them get it out far enough.
Here are Bug and Anya spending time with Uncle Dale on the boat.
After they went out on the boat, they took the 4-wheelers for a ride. This was Bug's favorite part of the weekend because she got to "drive" with the help of Scott.
Below are some of the beautiful things they saw on their ride.
