I give you, Pontunia the 3rd

We had visitors this past weekend.  Chris and Shannon were up with their two girls Kayla and Alexis.  Kayla and Avery are a month apart in age and Lexy (hiding behind Avery’s head) is a year younger than them.  It was good times in the wagon trailer!

Dylan liked taking care of all the little ladies.  He’ll be a good dad someday.

He was very concerned about a situation that came up on Pontunia on Friday night.

They key broke off in the ignition for NO reason at all!  No one was touching it!  We were just driving along, heard a snap and that was that.  Key broken!  And then someone turned the boat OFF just to see what would happen and sure enough, wouldn’t turn on again.  Turned out it was a blown fuse in the motor (what are the odds that the key breaks off AND a fuse blow at the same time!?) that was making it impossible to start the boat.  Luckily Shannon had her phone and we were able to call for a tow.

Wayne to the rescue!  It was real classy.

Here’s Dylan showing off some beans from the plants that he started from seed at school.  They are FINALLY producing something!

Shannon forgot her camera at home, so she took pictures of her girls swimming with our camera to commemorate the occasion.

I know she won’t want to forget this scene either!

While they were doing that, I zeroed in on a bee enjoying some pollen.  You’re welcome, bee!

Lake Dylan was back for the weekend!   So nice to have a second lake for the kids to play in.  HA.

Check it out!  We got a new pontoon this weekend too!  I shall call her…..wait for it…..wait for it……PONTUNIA the 3rd!  Clever, right?

Short a few cup holders.  I know where to find some. (On White Earth Lake, there is a woman super glueing her cup holders in place on her dock.)

I have sad news to report from this weekend, however.  The Honduran swing had finally had enough and snapped in half.

Good thing we had another swing waiting in the wings.

Out with the old, in with the new!  Dylan misses the Honduran swing though and requests that he get a new one or someone fix his.  This one is just not the same.  After all, it doesn’t have a hole for him to stick his head through while he swings.  ; )  So if anyone is in the neighborhood of Honduras, pick one up for him!

What’s happenin’ LOON?!

Avos the babos.  I have no idea why she looks tired here.  She took a 3 hour nap today.  We actually had to WAKE her up so we could get out on the lake.  Priorities!

Heading back in after our ride.

Well, nothing more to say tonight.  Later!

    so you were already planning on a 3rd pontoon boat when the second one broke? excellent timing!

    • Yep, new one was in the driveway. It wasnt/isn’t running tho. He got the old one running tho. Just needed a new fuse. And the new one is at the mechanics. The old one is up for sale on craigslist!
