This past weekend marked your first voyage on a boat.
But when the pace of the boat is nice and relaxed, you LOVE it. You laugh and look around and point to passing things like water slides that land in the lake and the big red balls that hang from the power lines over the water which you think are balloons. Also, there was a huge number of hawks and large birds of prey down at the lake circling and you would point at the birdies and make tweet-tweet noises. I had a blast playing with you on the boat. You thought it was great fun to be on a ride with the wind whipping past and NOT have to be in a carseat!
You made the most of the experience by standing as often as possible and playing cute little tickle games with me.I loved it!I wasn't the only one either!
I think we all fell in love with the new role of boat owners! Here are some pics - see if you agree with me!: Daddy chillin' with Rufus:
Cruisin the Lake!
I like to refer to this next one as "Oh Captain, My Captain" because it makes me think of the movie: Dead Poets Society and Carpe Diem and all that: Check out these grins! Life is good, isn't it?!?Daddy took to driving on the boat like he had done it a million times before. I was impressed!
Oh - and very importantly - on the JOB FRONT! We don't have any "official" offers yet, but it's looking good for us to stay in Saint Louis. Sounds like Daddy's company is working to create a job for him here in Saint Louis, so that takes a huge amount of stress off, but I'll feel better when we have it in writing!
