They’re not old enough to drive a jetski or a boat, but they can still explore the lake.

Fortunately our cove is large enough that they are always in sight of us as we sit on the dock. They stay out of the main channel when alone.

We have 2 more kayaks and a canoe so when all 6 grandkids are here at the same time, we look like an expedition.

They don’t even think of it as “exercise” and that’s how it should be. It should be fun to move your body.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

    I had a hard weekend, but I'm blessed!!! I spent 15 hours with no phone, no internet, no TV, and still I have no emergency companion service. I had lightning hit, and it took everything out!!! This whole month has been one magnetic area for lightning. My air conditioner took a hit about 2 weeks ago, and it took them 10 days to get to me, because of all the other people that had called in front of me. PRAISE THE LORD, it's fixed now!!!

I love the pictures of your grands, they're all beautiful!!! Now, don't tell the boys that I called them beautiful!!! I should just say that the boys are handsome!!!

God bless all of you,

  I know what you mean as my son kayaks beside me when I am open water swimming. He says it is hard to believe it is exercise as the dog sits on the top portion of the kayak

    The water will be "in their blood," and they will always want to spend time around it! My husband is this way with salt water.

    We put our daughter on a kayak for the first time when she was six months old. At six she had her own boat (Perception Sparky). At 16 she got a Manta Ray sit-on-top. Kids just need to learn to wave that paddle and always wear their pfd and whistle.

    Totally agree: "It should be fun to move your body. "

If we all just take on the mindset of a curious and healthy child... we would be moving more without even thinking about it! emoticon Hug 'em tight!

    Isn't it wonderful how exercise can seem like play? Kayaking, volleyball, badminton, a backyard baseball or kickball game...The list goes on, but overall we've lost the joy in these things. Where did it go?
Lovely pics, it looks like so much fun.

    That's so great. I agree, we should not think, 'Ugh, I have to exercise.' We just need to get out there and have fun!

Great pics!
