Living that Boat Life

Karl reserved the boat, and was probably the most excited to be be on the boat. We arrived at the rental shop, paid for the rental, and headed down the dock.
SO it is no surprise that we were the first family on the boat! The guys at the dock told us all about the boat, how to steer, rules, etc.
We had out life jackets on and we were ready to go!


Ready to be out on the water!

Look mom! A birdy!!

Yeah, we see it buddy.

Yep, a bird.

Everyone arrived and we all got our life jackets on and we were off!

Karl took us out.

This handsome driver.

The kids were all super excited.

 The girls are so cute… but can we just take a second to look at Lucas. WHY WHY WHY is he so freaking cute?? Look at those shorts! 

The first little bit on the boat was slow, and the kids were excited to look over the side.


Once we got out of port and into open water…

We made sure the kids we safe…



Then Karl let her rip!




Me and my perfect boy!!


Betsy with her ladies!


Betsy took a turn!



Karl took this chance to put his feet in the water.


I decided to take a set and enjoy the water too.

Betsy-with her sweet little co-pilot.

She wanted to drive the boat, all by herself.

We aren’t worried.

These kids!!!

Lucas with Zombie cheeto face. Sweetie.







Nick took his turn.

Trying to balance the boat.

Funny story.
There was a bag of starbursts on the boat. Asher had seen it and asked for a “Starbucks.”
Karl heard this, and had noticed that there was an empty Starbucks cup stashed in the back…

So he handed it to him.

This was funny, because none of us understood what he was asking for, and none of us knew that there was a cup in the boat.  Asher was confused as we were all amused.

At this point the sun had all but disappeared and we were getting chilly.

Mirah put her sweater on OVER her life jacket.

Karl’s glasses…

Lucas was loving it!

We were not loving the way he would jump so high…it seemed that he was about to jump out of the boat.











The wind picked up and it really started to get cold!



We pulled into port for a while and got sandwiches at the shop there. We ate our lunch. And had a few laughs. 

Nick and the girls:


Lucas at the wheel.







Lucas really wanted to keep driving.





The evolution of an okay family photo.

I got a shot to drive!

Then the birds arrived.

We told the group about when we fed birds off of the back of the cruise ship. So the kids started throughing food.


Then more birds arrived.

 Then more.

They ended up chancing us around the lake.

During one of Nick’s evasive maneuvers he turned, and a wave of water splashed up and SOAKED Rosy.


 We had a fun day!
We all agreed we would do it again, in the middle of the summer next time. With swim suits, and lots of food. It will be an awesome time someday.
