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.
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 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.
