Well since this "baby" came first, we decided to name the sailboat Grassy Rose. Sorry Baby Girl, but you should not be waiting so long to come out!
We went to Ridgway on Friday for Ben to test out his skills. He got a few books from the library on sailing and so he was excited to go and do. And? He had a GREAT time and absolutely loved it! He had a little trouble getting off of the shore, but once he did he was off and running. . . I mean sailing. It was really fun watching him and it looked like he was doing a really job manning the boat. I think Miles was a little nervous for his Daddy. He was real quiet when Ben was getting ready and asked what would happen if the boat tipped over. When Ben was heading out Miles was calling, "Don't go too far Daddy." Another time he called, "Dad, the boat is tipping!" It was sweet. But then watching the ever-so-skillful Ben on the boat, Miles lost all nervousness and began to play and have fun himself!

He made it out there and looked good!
A nice shot of Ben-the-Sailor-Man.
And while Ben was out cruising around, what were we doing? Well, throwing rocks for one thing - of course!
The boys also had fun playing in the water - until they got out and the sun went behind the clouds - BRRRRRR.
We also played in the back of Daddy's Truck. They love it back there - are they boys or what?!
When Ben got back we had a "picnic" in the back of the truck. How fun. We really had a fun time - especially Ben, I think! Oh yes, Boys Just Wanna Have Fun, too.
