Across the water

Yesterday Jason decided that we needed to go play at the lake. A few years ago he traded some work on some guys land for a kayak, and Chessa and I had never been out in it, (just him and Chloe), so we decided we would paddle across the lake and have a picnic dinner. It was a great afternoon, except for one thing... apparently I get very sick when out in a boat on the water! Oh so awful feeling! Barely made it to the other side.

Fortunately I felt better after sitting in the grass a while. The girls had a wonderful time playing in the sand and water, and just running around and exploring.

There were also many families of ducks to watch, but if I tried to get too close for pictures they quickly disappeared into the grasses. If you look real closely here you can kind of see them.

No pictures of the girls in the kayak because our camera battery didn't last long enough. I was going to take pictures of them heading back, since I decided to walk most of the way back around the lake. Just had to get in for a few minutes to get past the mouth of the river. We will go back soon, but I think I will have to stay on the shore!

Nicole, I have been sewing for so many years, but I wish I got as much knitting done as you do!
