Ahhhhhhhhhhhh..........................

We did it! We got to take the boat out this weekend! We haven't had it out since November!

Saturday evening we took our friends Rob and Bev McKissick out to Chuckanut Bay and anchored in a cove and barbequed a nice little dinner on the water! It was so relaxing, an absolutely beautiful calm evening on the water!

Then, on Sunday it was Marla's birthday, so Kathi, Marla and I went to the mall in the morning for a little birthday retail therapy, and then we met the boys at the marina at 1pm to head out to Sucia Island.

You'll notice we all got the white denim jacket memo!!


Once again the water was like glass and the weather was beautiful!! We enjoyed crackers w/cheese and salami on the way out, and then once we were on the island, we cut open the crusty bread and munched on that for a while. For dinner Dan barbequed some awesome steaks, we had potatoes and onions cooked in packets on the grill, and Jeff brought our favorite salad!! Nothing like a day spent with friends, relaxing, eating and sitting around a fire! The best therapy I know!


After dinner, Kathi brought out the birthday cupcakes her niece Hannah made for Marla and we lit a candle and sang to the birthday girl!

I can't ever get enough of the islands! Lord willing, this is just one trip of many in the months to come!

Looks like super fun, relaxing time... can't wait to see the digital collage you make of it when it gets scrapped! :-) Tanya is now up on using the scrapbooks etc. collage templates, so you can hit her up for advice too!! :-)
