Kayak Fever

We are loving the kayaks that Todd built. Summer with them will be fun. We had a couple of more opportunities to try them out lately. The week of 1st Communion, Noah invited his whole class over along with a few of their siblings over to Grandpa and Grandma Klauser's house. The kids had a BALL! They fished, kayaked, rode the paddle boat, jumped on the trampoline, and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows on the beach. It was a wonderful night. Drew is already planning a day this summer to have his friends out.

Grace and Mandy take a small break after their turn on the kayak.
The girls had no problems touching the fish OR the worms. Can't say the same for all of the boys!! LOL
The kids all had some good luck catching fish.
Ian was a kayak addict. I think he could have rowed all night.


The paddle boat was a hit too.
On Mother's Day we took the kayaks out again and this time I got to take a turn as well as Grandma Tunie and Grandpa Ken. Uncle Scott was a big ole wuss and wouldn't get in one. We need to work on him.

Drew takes Grandma on a ride while Grandpa take a solo run.
Me and Aiden take a ride. I was amazed at how relaxing and comfortable it was. I got to take a turn by myself and I could have paddled around all night. You definitely feel it in your arms later....at least you do if you're out of shape like me!

Noah and Drew take a spin around the lake.

With gorgeous weather in the forecast, we are heading out to my Dad's cabin to spend the whole day doing a little bit of everything. I can guarantee there will be some kayaking!!!
