Skyler's last week of summer vacation was a bit of a bummer for both of us. It always seems like it all went too fast and you wish you could start over. So on our last official free day of summer break (the very next day which was the real last day of summer break - we spent roofing as a family -- sorry but I love that stuff!!) we went paddle boating on Lake George at Loud Thunder Forest Preserve with our friends Ali and Fran for the "Summer Sendoff." We have started a tradition of either canoeing or paddleboating at least once a summer at Lake George and it is always a good time. We had lots of laughs from a life jacket "for the little one" (the guy apparently thought Skyler was about 3 years old by the size of the life jackets he kept trying to make her wear) to "yeah, but there are only 2 people in our paddle boat..." guess you had to be there for that one... what a great way to spend one of our final days of summer together.
