The boys and I had a great time sailing with Uncle Dennis on Saturday. We headed down a little early so we could stop in at Namie's house and try and beat the traffic. It's been a few years, I think, since I've been out on Serenity Now. The boys have been out more than I have. Since they are getting older I was actually able to enjoy this trip and not have to worry about them or watch them so carefully this time. It was fun to see them so comfortable on the boat! Of course I did end up with Zach on my lap for the last part of the trip, but I guess there is only so much a young sailor can handle.
We got back into the dock and got to have a great dinner down by the water. What a treat to find an open picnic table on Labor Day weekend! Zach passed out on the way home as soon as we hit the freeway. Kevin, on the other hand, managed to stay awake the whole ride home listening to Harry Potter on tape and then wanted to watch the movie after we got home.
Oh, and one other special thing we gained from this trip..... meet "Red Head". Uncle Dennis so generously gave this to Kevin to borrow. It's a red tail hawk that is about 40 years old, as he made in while in college. It's been carefully protecting Kevin's legos for the past few nights.
