Nothing like paddling close to the house. Today we got one of the torrential downpours. I swear we got an inch in about 30 minutes. As I type this the sun is back out. This is me and my son in the canoe under the swing set.My daughter and son are in the boat having fun. I have to say the umbrellas make great foul weather gear.
It took them a little while to talk me into getting out the canoe. But we had fun. I know none of us are wearing life jackets but the water was barely deep enough to float the boat I figured we could risk it. They tried to talk me into the paddles but that was where I drew the line.
