Boats and Hoes, Boats and Hoes

June 12, 2013

I wanted to put some of the lyrics from the famed Stepbrothers’ song on here, but it turns out they’re too dirty even for ME to post.

One of the perks of our cabin rental?  It comes with a BOAT!

The boat is definitely no-frills, and looks like it might sink in a rainstorm, and doesn’t go more than about  5 miles an hour…but still, it’s a BOAT!

Yesterday, we revved up the engine and headed out on the lake.

Actually, yesterday, we flooded the engine…then we had to sit around and wait thirty minutes before trying again, at which point we THEN headed out on the lake.

In the meantime, Lila and I admired the little fish living under our dock:

The dogs were pretty interested as well.  Winking smile

When we finally got the boat going and got out on the water, Lila was a little apprehensive at first:

…but she was having fun soon enough!

Ryan manned the wheel:

Pretty fun afternoon activity!

Yesterday was pretty laidback, otherwise.  Lila and Ryan did a little hootenannying:

And we enjoyed dinner on the back porch:

I still can’t get used to how crazy light it stays here at night! This was around 7:30!

I think we’re going to head out on another hike today.  But we learned our lesson—we’ll be hiking AFTER little princess:

…has her morning nap.  Winking smile 

Have a great day!

    I can’t believe how big Lila is getting! She is so beautiful! We have a pontoon boat. I love the thing. No, it isn’t the fastest boat or the fanciest, but I LOVE have a floating dock that gets me out on the lake. Looks like you guys are having a blast!

    Anna, is Ryan wearing Dolce & Gabana glasses, or does he, like Dce, have an affinity for wearing women’s sunglasses? (To clarify, Dave doesn’t purchase women’s glasses, but he does seem to reach for mine all too often). Looks like a perfect vacation! So glad you’re having fun!

    That is the exact pontoon boat that we used to have on Lake Bistineau! I loved it! Now we can’t use one because of the salvinia all over the lake : ( Can’t wait to use it!
