Picture proof. Lexi finally made it onto a boat with a life jacket. The purple life jacket to the rescue!
I’d say she enjoyed it. She was relaxed enough to almost fall asleep.
Emma, was of course ecstatic to get back on.
With of course a snack. Have I mentioned how much she is eating these days?!
We also got to visit this sandbar and let the kids swim.
My parents decided to invite themselves (glad you did!) since they hadn’t been out on a boat in forever.
The couple in the foreground (below) were our hosts. He is 92 and they have been married 70 years.
Can you imagine celebrating your 70th wedding anniversary? And actually now that I think about it, my parents have been married over 30 years so that’s over 100 years of marriage in that picture. Crazy.
But they are one of the sweetest set of people I’ve ever met. They like to treat Scott like a son and I’d say Scott is quite ok with that.
The kids also tested out their fishing rods. And…they hated it. Lexi was trying to catch a small fish and a catfish came out of nowhere, grabbed her line which pulled her forward a bit. It scared Lexi to death and she literally went running for the hills. Then of course Emma wouldn’t touch her rod. And honestly, I took over the rod and it scared me to death when a catfish grabbed my line. And no, I don’t think I’ve ever fished myself. I’m sure my parents my argue but it was definitely not a thing we did growing up. After Saturday, I’m guessing it’s not a family past time the girls want to take up.
They did, however, enjoy casting their line (is that what you say?!) with no hook or bait (again, right?) just to see how far it would go.
Scott redeemed the Bennett’s fishing prowess and caught a few fish for us. This picture is like a Where’s Waldo? The fish is hanging on the line..see if you can find it!
Definitely a great day. The only downside is it almost convinced Scott and I to go buy a boat one of these days. Someone stop us!
