Captain Reid

"Ok, I'm in charge here. Now, how does this thing work?"

"If I can't steer us anywhere, I guess I might as well taste it!"

We took Reid out on the boat for the first time today. Of course anything we do now has to be completely planned out to make sure that we don't forget anything that we might need! Checklist - paci, diapers, swim diapers, wipes, extra change of clothes, burp cloth, infant life vest, bebe pod, and I'm sure there's more that I bring that I'm just forgetting about now. So, nothing is just spontaneous now - that would throw a kink into everything! Anyway, back to the lake - he loved being on the boat but he wasn't quite sure about the water. We went with our good friends Nathan and Melissa and we all had a great time on the boat! (Note - I was going to get sun, but once again, I was unable to because I held Reid in the shade!) Oh well, I guess it really is safer to be out of the sun...but oh how I miss getting color! The guys wakeboarded and surfed, and Melissa surfed as well. Matt is really looking forward to when Reid can really enjoy the boat and other lake activities!

Daddy already teaching Reid how to drive a boat

But, Reid would much rather relax than worry about that!

Matt's goal: to drink a full beer while surfing. Lofty goals, huh!!

Our family loves being on the water! Check out the infant life vest - I think that should keep him afloat!

Going into the water...

Not quite sure what to think!

Reid's still upset about having been in the lake - Nathan and Melissa quickly calmed him down!

Reid was ready for bed after a long afternoon at the lake!
