Kayaking (Take 2)
There are several posts I have lined-up to share from a few of our summer adventures, but I've been lacking in time management to organize and get them up.
Today, I am sharing a kayaking trip Beau and I went on with a couple of kiddos from church. During Beau's birthday week, we took the hour-long drive to French Creek State Park to go kayaking. Beau and I had such a great time the first time, we wanted to try it again. We brought the kiddies along because they have become like family to us. We often bring them to Sunday school with us and Beau usually counsels them in the way of the Lord, as that is where his heart is at the moment. I often think that if I were to have children (2 boys specifically), they would be just like these two: a little reserved, but fun to be around. In any case, we also thought it would be a good experience for them as they didn't even know what kayaking was. They were nervous at first, but loved it in the end. We had a great time also. Of course, Beau did most of the paddling in our tandem boat because, weak arms. The day was beautifully overcast (my favorite since the sun seems to literally set my skin ablaze... no, seriously), and I wore a golf visor which apparently reminded my husband of little Asian women. We enjoyed our day trip and the guys did as well. Kayaking has easily become my favorite outdoor activity. I would love to try it in the ocean, though I'm not so keen on sharks.
