Hagg Lake 2016

Each year we try to get in at least one trip to Hagg lake with my parents and their boat. It is a lot of fun to get out on the lake and even go tubing! Elias remembered from last year and was very excited. Simon was very nervous. This morning he was starting to say he was scared. Elias tried to help, but was actually doing the opposite by saying things like, “Don’t worry Simon. If you fall out you can just ask a stranger and they will help you find our boat.”

Oh boy. That kid has a few things to learn.

But we make our trips to the lake as safe as can be. No falling out!

We were hoping for a really warm day. Perhaps 90 degrees. Then the lake water feels very refreshing. When we got there, it was in the low 70’s and it was very cloudy. We call it arctic tubing as a family joke. (It’s actually quite pleasant until you get splashed)

Lunch loosened him up, though, and he agreed to ride on the tube if it went slowly and he sat on my lap. Eventually he decided to sit on his own if I held his hand, and then started asking when it was going to go faster. By the end he was having a blast laughing and riding along like a pro.
