Almost a Boat Ride....But Not Quite

It was June and the day had finally come to actually get the boat in the water.  A much anticipated day by the kids.  You see they were in the boat before Dad pulled it out of the garage.

We pulled it to the boat launch and backed it into the water.

I don't have a picture of Dad trying like h*** to start the motor, but as you can see things are not going as planned.  Then Dad confessed that the battery didn't take a real good charge and the batteries were from 2002 and 2003.  He continued to look things over for a while.  I think he was more disappointed than the rest of us.

And we waited.


And acted silly.

And then decided to head out to our swimming hole.  Dad and Emily are preparing for a race across and back. 

Joseph played in the sand while Dad and I figured out when the next trip to Fleet Farm would be.  I'm happy to report that since my blogging is a bit delayed these summer days, the batteries have been purchased, are fully charged and ready to go for this Fourth of July Weekend.
