My pumpkins, their pumpkins and Pontunia. And the hideous dock.

Eric is threatening emptying the hot tub.  I know it must come to an end, but I shall miss it.  My hair won’t miss it though.  And my skin.  But I know two kids who will miss it.  (Dylan wasn’t in the mood to cooperate for a picture, in case you were wondering why I didn’t select a picture with him in it)

They were all in the hot tub and I was out (my hair had had enough chlorine for one day, thank you very much) waiting for the sun to set so I could get some good pumpkin pics.

And here they are!  The “Grandpa Danny” pumpkin…

Yesterday was the final pontoon ride of the year.  And there were very few pictures taken b/c I didn’t want my hands to freeze and fall off!  I guess there was a reason why we are one of the last pontoons to leave the lake?  Its cold?! What?!

Parking the boat at “Laudy’s” (what Avery calls Larry) so we can pull the dock.  Sigh.

Preparing for dock departure.  I like the clouds reflecting on the lake here.

Everywhere she went yesterday, people stopped to compliment her.

I don’t know how this happened, but they both just happened to sit still in the wagon ON THEIR OWN ACCORD so I could take some pictures of them.  This rarely happens….enjoy…

Always making her laugh!

This picture is for Grandpa Danny.  Eric thought you’d like to see how far Larry’s motor spits.

Stop taking pictures of me!  I’m too beautiful!

And finally, dock removal.  Last year, we left this hunk of junk in the water (feared it wouldn’t survive the pull).  The year before, we pulled it out and it made a mess of the yard and nearly fell apart.  This year, it had to go.  So Laudy and Eric jacked it waaaaaay up.

Hooked it to “Trail.”

And let it rip.  Which we thought might be literal.

DSC 1057DSC 1059

Amazing!  It came out in one piece!  Look at the bent poles tho!  What a quality dock!

Purdy lawn ornament!

Wait a minute – where’s he goin’ with that?!

DSC 1064

Yep, up to the road.  It will get a giant “FREE” sign slapped on it later today.  And someone better bite because I don’t want to look at it in my driveway any longer than I have to!  Anyone???  Anyone????  Its niiiiiiiiice.
