We hit the lake earlier than we have been because it’s our last day. It turns out for the best because of two things.
First, it’s Friday, and the weekend visitors are starting to roll in. That makes for a busy lake and crappy boarding water.
Second, the clouds have moved in and threaten to bring in some rain. At the very least, the wind is picking up. Great for heat relief. Crappy boarding water.
Seeing a trend?
I get back to the music basics and pull out the CD that was last year’s soundtrack almost exclusively: Cross Canadian Ragweed’s Back to Tulsa. Great music to watch Max tear it up on the board by going out of the wake both directions (hard to believe this is the same kid who was literally shaking when we put him in the water with skis last year…and we didn’t even move the boat then).

Not to be outdone on a number of fronts, Mara kicks it into gear and loses a tooth plus also goes outside the wake.
|Tooth in hand…but hard to see a gap when her mouth is shut|
We manage to hold on to our new anchor, have one last round of shaved ice and a final campfire complete with burnt marshmallow s’mores. Plus, we are packed and ready to hit the road bright and early back to KC.
|Love that green apple with extra sour…Yum!|
|The flash sorta dims the light of the fire…|
