We decided to paddle a second day in a row. With 3 boats loaded on the trailer and a 10×10 pop up, we were ready to weather the sun and hang out for the morning.
Corvin and I hung out in the shade while Danelle and Maggie paddled in the canoe.
Sonora followed next in Tangelo
And Hannah came in last. But to be fair, she was in the slowest boat!
Eventually, Kelly, Jeff, and Mason came out to join us. Kelly, Mason, and I paddled the canoe around the lake for a bit having a good time. Jeff didn’t want to get in the water, but he did walk around the lake! It was a nice refreshing day to share with friends and family.
Paddling is something that I mostly do and the rest of the family puts up with. We don’t do it enough together even though we have enough boats. Since we got a trailer earlier this year, there is no excuse not to get the family out together and paddle! So here we go!
You can see that we have 3 boats on the trailer, 2 up top and one below. When I say family paddle, I mean substitute Danelle for Maggie and Corvin for Hannah 🙂 You can see 3 of the 4 of us in this shot going up Grand Glaze Creek.
It was great seeing the girls enjoy the freedom of paddling. Maggie and Hannah don’t get much time in a kayak and it took a long time after we finished for their smiles to fade! I”m glad I was able to bring more of our boats our tonight and bring joy to our extended family!
My parents have had several large pieces of wood in the back yard for a few years. Mom had mentioned getting rid of it and I offered to chop it up. Not to be out done, my dad said he wanted first crack at it! Unfortunately, he had so much fun, there wasn’t much for me to do but clean up the mess when he finished up!
