I have to apologize for the lack of photographs and only boring text! It’s sad how busy our regular home life can get and probably why I appreciate the slow travel days with a more relaxed schedule!

But last Friday we did have a day of fun. Everyone had a day off work or switched schedules, public school is back in session (as homeschoolers we like having places to ourselves) and so we took a pontoon boat out for a day of boating, picnicking, and fishing. It was lovely just hanging out together.

Here’s Ben:

Ben and brothers all wanted to drive. It’s so nice to sit back and do nothing on these trips!


And our fashion boating queen Charlotte:


No fish were caught but no anchors were lost this boat trip and no one fell in. Just good fun with family.
