Rowing Down the River

The weather finally cooperated this weekend and my husband and Little Guy headed to do something they have had on their "to do" list for a while:  kayak.   It is on my list too, but I don't want to leave Big Guy home alone so until we get him to feeling well again I will wait.  

They packed lunches and plenty of water and headed out early for their 9:00 launch time at Leake County Water Park.  They were so excited.  I didn't know if they would take any photos, but I was so glad they managed to take a few.

Have I ever mentioned that the fact that my husband makes spending time with my boys a priority makes me fall in love with him over and over again??
