~~Rollin' on the River~~

*do do doo doo do do doo doo* (You're singing with me now, aren't you?)

Yep, yesterday we were rollin' on the river - the Ohio River that is. :)
Every summer, my family gets invited for a day out on my uncle's houseboat and yesterday was our day. We absolutely love it and the boys look forward to it all year long. We usus
ally meet up early afternoon, cruise along the river and then dock at one of the islands in between Kentucky and Indiana to cook out, play on the "beach" and explore.
It turned out to be unseasonably chilly this year, but we still were able to do most our usual activities with the exception of playing in the water and we got to do some new things too! Ethan learned how to tie a knot to help secure the boat when we docked, Carson got his first lesson in captaining (boy, am I going to have to watch out for this kid - he loves anything with a steering wheel!), and Turner kept busy with either of the two dogs my uncle had on board as they would let him! ;) We had a wonderful day, an amazing lunch and really enjoyed the fact that it wasn't as hot as normal for a change!












And
as usual, it wouldn't be right unless I shared a few pics!! Hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day (except for you, Dawn - NO LABOR FOR YOU!! 'k??!)
