Family Fun Day

It is so easy to stay home and organize, work around the house, and be task-oriented on the weekend! Well, as Flylady suggests, it's vital to take some time each week for a Family Fun Day! Those messy junk drawers can wait. We have been long overdue for a Fun Day!

This week-end was our maiden voyage with our first little boat. Of course, the boat landing was packed with long lines as Iron Chef and I bumbled our way through the launch! (Our boat should have come with boat launch classes - I am thinking you need some type of degree to launch properly.) I won't even go into backing the thing into a two-lane launch. Oy! As all the other expert boat launchers came and went, we continued with our comedy of errors until, at long last ---WHo
oooSH! We were finally successful. It was as if the heavens were opened to us! Hallelujah!

I'm surprised the waiting camouflage-wearing, fancy fishing pole-carrying, imported beer-drinking mob didn't didn't break into applause!
We obviously were the only ones at the boat launch that were completely inept! LOL! Oh well - we definitely made an impression. : )

Have you had a Family Fun Day lately?

Hey, we are planning on getting a boat really soon too. And the type DH is looking at is like yours. He wants an open bough. I want a cabin, but to get that, we need more $$$. :o) I want a retreat from the sun. DH says they come with canopies so that isn't a problem. Hey if we have a nice canopy, I am ok with that. :o)

I loved your description of launching into the water. I wish I was there. :o) LOL Thankfully DH grew up having a boat, so he will know how to launch ours as well. And that is why he wants an open bough boat. He says the smaller they are, the easier to launch.

Thank for posting the pictures. It was great seeing what you all did for Family Fun!

I'm sure everybody there was remembering when they were new to this, too. Everybody has to start somewhere!

I love hanging out on the lake on a boat. One of my dreams to is have a lake house and a boat. Maybe someday...

Looks like you guys had a great time! Loved the pics and enjoyed the story! Wish we had room to store a boat. We love camping and water fun during the warm months. We're planning a bowling family fun day soon. Have a great week. I'll be updating my blog soon. Had a busy weekend. All the best!

Dh took our gang fishing twice last week on his off days and they are looking for more fun this week. We hadn't taken our boat out in a while. Maybe they can't hit the water this week if the sun stays. Looks like y'all had so much fun!
