Story at the Lake

Pictures are still on their way of our beach trip, but until then I have to tell this quick story from Sunday.

We were at the lake with Rodney's parents on Saturday and Sunday! The kids love swimming and have both become really good swimmers over this summer. Every time we go to the lake, the kids decide to ride the intertube/inner tube (spelling ?) a little longer or a little faster. Joshua is usually the one that wants to do it all. Ride the jet ski, the tube and jump off the boat into the water. Marah decided she would ride the tube with our cousin Sallie. So she did! About the time we took off, we saw lots of fish jumping out of the water. They were small and some looked like they were about to jump in the tube with Sallie and Marah. The ride got a little fast, so Marah was ready to get back in the boat. Marah and I decided to take a break and go back to the camper, so they let us off and Marah wanted to change out of her swimsuit. I saw something black that looked like a stain on her swimsuit. I looked down in it, trying not to let her see and little did I know, a small fish was trapped inside her swimsuit. Oh no! I tried to flick it out before she saw it, but too late. She spotted the fish and started screaming bloody murder. I was trying to get her swimsuit off as quick as possible, but it was not quick enough. The fish had pooped inside her swimsuit and she had grabbed a hold of it trying to get it out and she squeezed some of its guts onto her belly. yucky! The neighbor thought something bad had happened by the way Marah was screaming! She finally calmed down after she had a shower to wash everything off. But she still would cry and say that fish pooped on me.
On top of that, Joshua and Pappy flipped over on the jet ski. They were out stranded for awhile till we noticed the jet ski had been in one place for awhile. The jet ski had died. Pappy was in the water trying to get back on while Joshua was on the jet ski when the boat pulled up to them. Joshua said Pappy was going too fast and they turned over. What a day at the lake.

This has happened to me as well.. Although it was not at the lake, but at the beach.. When I was a little girl as I was taking off my swim suit I found a fish.. GROSS !!!!! But it happens to the best of us.. She will get over it, I did !!!
I do feel for her, but it makes for a very funny story !!!
