Our new ride!

Bayliners are us!

Ya should have seen me climbing up the swim step and crawling into this boat, very FUN with a skirt on. We only had flashlights inside and Steve gave it the go over outside. A nice clean boat, with a good trailer. Hopefully it will last a few+ years...with growing kids and all! The v berth is lovely! Very tall and long, with wide ledges all the way around. Yea for mom! Now to figure out the logistics involved in buying this boat. Steve's at work today and he just called to say that he forgot his glasses. I guess I should get ready to go bring him his barnacles. So much for not leaving the house today. ha!

Have a great Saturday!

Hunter made this for me!

Scout Weekend!

Very spoiled!

The kids finished up Christmas last night.

Hunter borrowed his dad's IPod Nano.

Steve is getting a new 20" Stihl, his belated Xmas. To chop down trees on the property! We finally dug out the area out front, the first time all winter. The motor home needs to be accessible. She's getting new brakes and rubber in the next month or so. That will feel good. We put a lot of miles on her in our travels. We're planning a trip to the property for spring break, which will be here before ya know it...the April clam tide is on the books now too. Both kids have swimming engagements for scouts this weekend, one at UAA today and one at H2Oasis tomorrow. Steve is working on Saturday now, so our routine is changing a bit. Rockfish for dinner tonight, per the chef. Sunday school and Confirmation start tomorrow, so the weekend is BOOKED. Life is good. Looking forward to the long weekend in a couple weeks, sans kids. We look forward to a fun summer in a new boat, if the right one comes along...the family would be so stoked!

It's sure nice to have time to post.
Peace be with you.

Happy trails,
wherever they may lead.
I'm off like a herd of turtles.
