Day with the Fullers

Have I told you lately that I really enjoy our days out on the boat?  I do.

The day we went out with my sister's family was one of the best days for smooth water that we had.  Smooth enough we were able to convince Ivy to give it a try.  Harry and Luke gave skiing a try as well.  I love the trainer skis.  The front of the skis are connected and the rope is fastened to the skis.  Then the child holds on to the rope and an adult in the boat holds on to the other end.  Then as soon as the child crashes, the adult lets go.  I think I would have been willing to try water skiing again as a child, if they would have had the trainer skis back then.

Ivy did not get up.  But she promised to try it again on another day.  Maybe when she's five.

This outing was one of the most adventurous ones for the tube.  Luke flew.  Jade flew.  Harry changed seats. And the kids all had a blast.  But, I don't think Harry wants to ride in the tube again.  At least not for a while.  The flying didn't help Ivy get up the nerve to ride the tube.  She was happy staying inside the boat the whole day.  She and Z.
