Boating in October

Our friends the Jensen’s took us boating last weekend.  That’s right, October 9th and we’re out boating.  Hope this warm weather lasts!  We went on the river 5 minutes from our house.  We only went for a couple hours because it was late and I didn’t know how long the boys would last.  But they did great.  They were mostly just quite and still….just taking it all in.  There were a lot of new sounds and sights to observe being on a boat for the first time :) IMG_7862The Christensen’s came too.  They are some of LIncoln’s favorite people.  Emily & Ty are his nursery leaders and Emily works at the daycare at the gym.  Now they’re his boating buddies too!IMG_7865Lincoln’s jacket was just a hair too big.  Not the safest, but dang cute.  It was all we had.  He was great about keeping it on though!IMG_7866IMG_7868IMG_7870IMG_7872Ryan hadn’t been wakeboarding in three years.  But he got up and did great.  I went earlier this summer with the Jensen’s but before that it had been three years for me too.  Way too long.IMG_7874IMG_7877IMG_7878IMG_7880Captain Chase and his Dad Chad.  This little guy has been boating since he was an infant.  He’s a natural.IMG_7879Ty’s turn.  He and Chad are super good wake boarders.IMG_7884At one point towards the end we hit a wave and the four of us got soaked up in the front, especially Sawyer.  The water was really cold so we stripped him down, borrowed one of Chase’s hoodies and wrapped him in a towel.  That’s why he’s not wearing his life jacket.  I know…not the wisest, but it was cold and he was freezing and we were almost done.IMG_7885IMG_7890Good times with great friends.  Summer went by way too fast but I must say this was an excellent way to end it :)

I am so surprised that Lincoln kept that jacket on. Looks like good times.

So fun. Yeah for the Jensens. It looks like they have a very nice boat. (with a tower) Why no pictures of you water skiing Cheryl? I wish someone would go boating with me. It has been more than 3 years for me.

Lincoln loves water so much ... did he at least go swimming? Or was it too cold. In a year or so I bet he can go kneeboarding, or at least tubing.

Love Grandpa

That jacket is pretty cute on Lincoln. Was the boys not scared? I want to take Hannah boating but am afraid it would be too bumpy. Glad you get to go every once and a while!
