Paul came home from work one day and while I was about to start cooking dinner, he took it upon himself to load up the kayaks and told us to skip dinner because we are headed to the beach to go kayaking. There were no arguments there! We all dressed in our suites and hopped in the car and headed to Belmont Shores.
The boys did a loop around Naples, while the girls listened to Pamdora on the beach and played in the sand. Andrew was very helpful and decided he was big enough to row with the paddles. Paul said that every 2 strokes their paddles would hit and it took him twice a long to go, but it was worth it.
Then it was the girls turn to go out for a lap around the island. Allison talked the entire time. But since she was in front and with the wind I could barely hear her! That didn't stop her from rambling on and on about everything her little 3 year old brain could think of. I enjoyed every moment of our girl time on the water together.
Ashley Marie was content to sit this boat ride out. She did manage to entertain herself by rolling over in her car seat a few times. Her eyes look so blue in her bathing suit and white sun hat.
