A day on the lake....

Today we went out on Scott's dad's pontoon boat out at Codorus. I was a little apprehensive at first since Brayden had not been on a boat since he was about 7 months old. I was not sure how he would do with having to wear a life vest since he does not like to have one on while we are swimming. Well, to my surprise, he did very well. We had a BEAUTIFUL afternoon. Of course, I forgot my camera and I could kick myself because I missed a lot of memorable photos!! Hayley and Brayden both took turns helping Pappy Dave steer the boat. We beached the boat back in a cove and went in the water (with life vests on...of course!!) Hayley was swimming like a fish and Brayden & I caught fish with a net. He had a blast playing in the water. Hayley then went fishing with a fishing rod and caught a fish with Pappy Dave's help, although she didn't want to touch it!!! We decided to take another ride around on the boat and as we were down by the dam...the sky became very dark. We hightailed it back to the dock..well as fast as a 20 mph boat motor allowed us. Scott, the kids, & I made it off just in time! Unfortunately, Pappy Dave and Sue got soaked pulling the boat back on the trailer. It poured!! On the 15 minute drive home, both kids fell asleep! They had a wonderful day and our looking forward to spending another afternoon on Pappy Dave's pontoon boat....

You better not let the parks water cops see you catching fish with a net, that is a big no-no. They say it takes the challenge out of the sport...go figure!
