Today is BOAT DAY!

Today is the day that the boat comes out of dry storage! I think there might still be ice, but we are troopers and that is what wet suits are for! Can't wait for the really warm weather and to jump in the lake:)

I am fairly jealous of Roger and LindyLoo, I want a boat! I am currently short a large sum of money to buy one so I will have to mooch off the parentals for another year.

C2 LOVES the boating action. Roger and LindyLoo have already purchased new flippy floppies and a life vest for him. He talks about them every day, and is constantly asking where his grandpa's boat is. Well today, my little friend, the boat comes out of hiding!

LindyLoo said they were going to take it out of storage and just drive south. To this I suggest that we all move to St. George so that boating can be a year-round activity.

Some of my fondest memories are from family boating trips. I remember our first trip to Lake Powell. It was the first and last time we ever camped there. We are more of boat during the day and stay in a hotel at night peeps. I love going to Lake Powell! It is so beautiful there and peaceful. I wish that I could move to Page, Arizona and boat everyday!

There are so many summers that were spent just on the boat. I grew up about 20 minutes away from Deer Creek Reservoir and we went there almost every day. The wind and the fresh water are amazing.

Thank you for going along with me on this trip down memory lane, it was at least fun for me:)

  1. 1. Didn't the parents buy the boat for family outings (ie kids and granddkids?) I wouldn't worry about getting one of your own anytime soon.
    2. I'm pretty sure they also bought it for nieces - their spouses and kids. So, I'll be needing to take advantage of that soon. At least Dave needs to, or else he may negotiate trading our house for one.....
