Today we took the "Decompression" out on her inaugural voyage...around Clinton Lake in Lawrence, KS. It seems every year we have some major boating issue that prevents us from even launching from the dock on our first outing. This year was the exception...we must be getting better at this boating thing!
I find the "Decompression" to be a bit of an oxymoron. Something that is supposed to be relaxing, and well, decompressing, often leads to more angst and headaches then is necessary. And really, does anyone find boating with toddlers and preschoolers relaxing? I suppose my husband does...as he's driving the boat and rocking out to classic '80s rock. Hmmmm...
Just a few pics from today. The weather was absolutely beautiful. We reached a high of 87...the warmest day of spring thus far. The water was still a bit chilly, but refreshing when one needed a quick cool down. Looking forward to a restful Sunday as we recover from excessive sun exposure!
Can you see the excitement? This is old hat for Mary...Ben's not quite sure what to think!
Ben loves his crab floatation device.
Mary sporting her new sun hat. So sweet!
