Usually we don't go to the river on Labor Day weekend. It just seems like it's back to school time, time to can tomatoes, and time to watch football. But A came home this weekend and surprised us, so we thought we should take advantage of our time together and spend it on the river. All 3 of my kids knee boarded. A went first:
Then Cara decided it was her turn. Usually she doesn't get up on her knees; she just likes to be pulled slowly and she stays on her tummy. Today was the day, though, she got up on her knees! Just look at that grin:
I love her smile in this one. She was so proud of herself. :)
It took some coaxing from all of us to get B to knee board. He prefers to just stay in the boat. But he humored us and let me take some pictures.
It was perfect weather and a nice, relaxing day for our last time on the river this year.
