Sunday Sailing

We went sailing on Sunday at a local lake, which is only about 5 minutes from our house.  On the way there, Steve and I were talking about the fact that he had never been out on a boat at this lake.

He said, "Well, I am not really a lake person."  And after thinking for a moment, he said, "I am not really a boat person either."  He was taking one for the team since it was my nephew's birthday and he requested that we all go sailing together.

My sister-in-law's parents own a sailboat and took us all out.  Seth had been out on the sailboat once before and was an old pro.

Steve - before his dramamine had fully kicked in - with Captain Tim in the background.

Why yes, the water does look quite green.  Didn't stop the boys from swimming and even putting their heads under and using goggles to try and see.  Not sure that was very successful!

Captain Caleb - which he likes to refer to himself as - steering the boat.

My sister braved the radioactive green waters to swim with the boys - thanks sis!

My brother and the birthday boy!

Way to take one for the team, Steve! Did he do ok? At least his face isn't green like that water. :)

Wow, the water looks yummy. Oh well, those boys don't care. They just want to have fun.
