Tyler and Melinda were kind enough to invite us to go to Roosavelt with them for the day. Mike got this grand idea to get this old, old, old (you get the picture) boat from his dad that his dad traded for a car without a motor. (That tells you how much it was worth!) Mike wanted to try it out on the water and see if it would work. It was a perfect opportunity for him because Tyler would be there to tow him in if he broke down.
That would have all been fine and good if he had even gotten away from the dock.......... The boat would start but would die as soon as he put it in gear to go. Except once...... when he forgot to take the boat out of gear. He was in the back of the boat holding the charges to the battery ( I know it sounds crazy but if you knew Mike it wouldn't surprise you) and Katlyn was in the front turning the key to start it. So, he held the charges, she turned the key and due to the fact that he forgot to take the boat out of gear it shot off across the water. Not slowly I might add. Kate's face was priceless and Mike's reaction time was pretty good. We were just lucky we were the only boats at the dock!
Needless to say we parked the old boat and enjoyed the rest of the day on Tyler and Melinda's boat.
Thanks for the fun guys! We had a blast! I didn't get many pictures......

1st Day of Preschool!

Gage was so sad not to be able to go to kindergarten this year, but he was super happy to go to his 1st day of preschool! He's got an amazing teacher and the cutest kids in his class. He is learning a ton and is a much happier boy now!
