Alright, I was just going to post the pictures...but thought I should probably tell the story. First there's a couple things you should know.
1. This was at the woman's retreat from Meadow Creek (so awesome!)
2. I finally got Meg to come with! It was so great to have her with!
3. Don't mess with Candi and Beth with pontoons or ping-pong. They turn into competitive 16 year old girls. I may have made some other comparisons that weekend...I'm sure Candi or Beth would be happy to share.

Alright, so it was a windy day and we knew that there would be a pontoon race. Last year the same race happened and Beth won. Beth also won ping-pong that year.

Fast forward a year...

So again, it was a windy day. Really windy. We left in our pontoon first, and then a few minutes into our leisurely boat ride we hear the other pontoon approaching, driven by Beth. We know that the race is going to happen!

Across the lake they see a canoe. What a great finish line we decide! And off we go on the race across the lake! In the mean time the canoe, already paddling in pretty good waves, had made their way left while we were still aiming at the previous point because we were going straight. Our pontoon was in the inside and Beth's was on the outside. All of a sudden Beth backs off and cuts behind us! With all of the ladies just giggling away! We very quickly realize that our finish line is still the canoe and they are going to try to beat us!

So image this if you can. Two very old style pontoons filled with giggling ladies driving are heading for the canoe (with two younger ladies in it). Beth's pontoon passes the canoe on the left and ours passes on the right. And then we realize...oh no...the wakes from the pontoons!!

Just then we see the two girls get hit by two huge waves! Thankfully they managed to keep the canoe upright! I mean, we would have circled back. :)

PS - Beth may have won the pontoon race, but Candi dominated ping-pong.
