Nothing like it

You know, there is nothing quite like skimming over the water at high rates of speed on an innertube.
There is nothing quite like the water splashing in your face so you can't see the next big wave.

There is nothing quite like "going flying" over the water.

There is nothing quite like being hoisted back up on the inntertube by your brother as one's grip slips. (Thanks Andrew!)

There is nothing quite like laughing so hard with your brother that you can barely hang on.
And, there is nothing quite like waking up the next morning and having your muscles tell you that there is nothing quite like it.

I love tubing, too, Bethany! My favorite part when you can get the tube out over the boat's wake--and go skipping across the sparkling clear water.

Hey Bethany,
Looks like you had a lot of fun!! When we went tubing at my Aunt and Uncle’s, we just rode single because the tube was so small, but we’ll have to try double sometime!!
See ya next weekend!

You are right. There is nothing like it...especially when it is your first time, and the rope breaks, and you can't hold on anymore, and you literally fly!!! (it's kinda scary when it's your first time just floating around in a lake with nothin holdin ya up except for the life jacket, and you don't know how to swim!) But, it was fun. Definitly one thing I'll never forget about last summer. LOL

Thanks for reminding me of the fun...

...and there's nothing quite like bouncing off the tube and landing either on or under the other person on the tube!!

It's amazing that you were able to take such good self portraits of yourself! :D You are amazing, Bethany! [smiles] Anyway, hope, no scratch that, I'm praying that you guys (and gals :) can come to North Dakota next month! :)

Wow!! You must of had fun!! Those pictures are so funny...! I like the best the part where "And, there is nothing quite like waking up the next morning and having your muscles tell you that there is nothing quite like it." That was the best!!

Tubing is so much fun! The holding on tight while laughing is really tough. But tons of fun! I think muscles hurt more when you fall off a lot. My sister and I were on top of each-other (I was on the bottom) and that made it especially fun, but challenging. :)
