apparently a roadside bargain canoe is just too much for my love to resist - and so it was that after wanting such a beast for the past 2 years daddy came home with this bad boy on top of the car last week.
the children were giddy with glee!
mumma, not so much (hello, you were due home over an hour ago and i was starting to worry, plus did you just spend the grocery money on a canoe??)
so up we went to the lake. lifevests on. breath held as we waited to see if it would sink or not! (my "i-told-you-so" speech just waiting to burst out of my mouth)
hooray! it floats!
and with cute little bottoms like these, and the peacefulness of being way out on the lake how could i possibly stay mad? we had such a lovely family time together (rare these days) and even saw an incredible beaver dam. it was so special. stay tuned for more canoe adventures!
