Last week I get a phone call just after 5 pm. It was our friend asking if we wanted to go to the lake for the evening. Instantly a list of all the reasons why tonight it not going to work pops into my head. So I kindly decline and inform him that Steve wasn’t even home from work and wouldn’t be for a while. I thought I was in the clear.

He quickly interjects…I’ve already talked to Steve, he bet me I couldn’t convince you…

Then I picture Steve sitting at his desk at work, crossing his fingers and his toes in hopes that his wife will be generous to say yes to Jared…and that very thought made me say yes. Jared was a little surprised, Steve was more surprised and within 20 minutes I was running out the door with all our gear to meet them at the lake. I met up with Steve so we could drive together and he was so excited and happy that this was the way he was going to end the day.

It was fun. Really fun. I know I’ve said it before but I really like being on a boat. Especially in the evening as the sun starts to set. It was a good night.
