Kayaking on the Lake

We've been meaning to take the kayaks out on the lake by our house since we moved here a year ago. Last summer we were busy painting, doing house projects, and getting unpacked. And of course, this summer Jack has been gone, so I decided we should just go, and see how we fared doing it on our own. This was our first time kayaking without Jack, so it was a little more complicated getting the boat in and out of the water, but Leo and I managed.

It was a nice (somewhat cooler) day, and the lake setting could not have more beautiful. We enjoyed looking at all the trees, and the clear blue skies. As we paddled around I taught Leo the names of all the animals we saw: duck, goose, frog, fish, turtle.  (He is really learning new words quickly now)  We had a great time!
