Rowing my boat

We went to Lake of the Woods today with the playgroup. It was great fun and I'm really glad that everyone showed up (despite the absolute downpour we sat through when we first got there). We've done this in the past with other friends and we've always had a less than stellar turn out. Today, that was not the case. Everyone that said they were coming, came and we ended up with nearly 30 people!

After the little rain shower, the weather was perfect. I paddled the tandem kayak and let people take turns just riding around the lake, plus we had the other boats for people that wanted to go it alone. Bubba was my first passenger, along with Ms Thang and he LOVED it! It was all I could do to get the kid out of the boat to give other people turns or to eat lunch or grab a drink. When I told him that I needed to stop to have lunch he waved his hands at me and yelled "NAH!"

I did manage to get Quigs in the boat with us and got a picture to prove it

X-man, MacTroll and Looseyfur were also able to join us. Looseyfur

and Mactroll each took a kayak out on their own but X-man was pretty much uninterested. He liked the boats on dry land but once he found out he couldn't swim but had to be in the boat, he wasn't going to go

Riley had great fun in the water, even if X-man wouldn't

Ms Thang went out once with Bubba and that was it. She spent the rest of the time on shore playing ball, running around and hanging out with PG

as well as eating, pretty much non-stop

We had a fun-fabulous time today with the Freak family. Thank you so much for hauling all the boats and jackets out there for us to use.

And I think Bubba's gonna demand a repeat!

LOVE it! We had SO much fun today - and poor Bub was whining almost the entire way home, saying 'boat.' But then as soon as his little head hit the pillow, he passed out for almost 3 hours.

But you can read about it in a minute when I blog. :)

(And Bubba for sure would go again! And again, and again, and again...)

Next time I'm leaving MT at home with you and taking Bubba. Way easier for all involved (except you maybe since MT is kind of a handful LOL)

I think that's a fab idea! I'll just take her out to eat. ;)

What happened to "in a minute"? I've been waiting 10 and there is no blog! Blog woman, blog!

It's up for your reading pleasure!
