We drove up yesterday, Gerry, the kids, Max’s friend, Charlie, Atticus and me – a car full!
Our trip to NJ – as fun as it was – was not really a vacation for anyone, and all the travel was exhausting for Gerry.
I’m actually back in St. Paul, I had to return with Hannah (she has an event tomorrow that she can’t miss, a school thing) but we’ll be driving back tomorrow afternoon and then I’ll be dark (no internet) until Thursday. So enjoy these shots now, I’ll be back at the end of the week!
I’d been toying with the idea of getting something like this, I know it’s not a ‘real’ kayak, but it will be very easy to store this winter and pull out for other lake weekends. And the cost was about what I’d expected to pay for a canoe or kayak rental.
After some paddling around and some swimming (yes, I joined the kids) we all had a killer game of Sorry!, where I was soundly trounced by all three kids. One would think they’d have more respect for their poor, old mom.
When Hannah and I left today the boys were heading out to the dock for some fishing. We started packing some stuff in the car and who should arrive but a blog reader with a plate of the best cookies I’ve had in a LONG time!
