We hope everyone is having a good summer so far.  We spend most of our summer out on the lake. We have a pontoon boat and we take it out almost every weekend and sometimes in the evenings through the week.  We really enjoy being on the water.  We take Bumper with us most of the time and he absolutely loves it.
