Canoe Trip 2009

Last year the baby girl stayed on the shore. This year she was the first one to hop into the canoe... it was fun, here some pics:


Choosing Paddles


Off we go!


The Gator Watch


Practicing gator whacking techniques


Poking underwater turtles


Turtle posing doing a Michael Jackson Tribute (only needs a hat)

That's all...

Happy 4th of July you all!

The next step is to see if the kid can ride a kayak on his own. I'll try that next week.

What river is that? I'm going to Blue Springs State Park this weekend. I thought about renting some kayaks, but I'm worried about the July 4th drunken boaters.
