Is that the waterpark you told me about on the phone? That looks like a lot of fun!

Sometime my family will have to visit you and your town. Take care!

Joey,

Yes that is the waterpark I told you about on the phone......and the sailboat I am on with my mother in law and Jerry with Captain Shaun in the background (my husband was in the cabin below setting up everything before we took his Mom out) is the one I had my first date with my husband on and the one he proposed on........
