Zoe and I hung out down by the pond while waiting for her dad (my brother) and Uncle Chris to get back from their canoe ride around the pond. Chris bought a canoe off of Craigslist last Friday and it was the canoe’s first spin around our pond.
The pretty fall foliage behind them is the awful Chinese tallow. Its color in the fall is probably its only redeeming quality.
When we first told Zoe about the canoe she wasn’t interested in going. Well, she wanted everyone, all six of us, to go in the canoe at once. She didn’t quite understand that it wasn’t really feasible and got upset about it. Finally, she came around and her interested grew. We had bought both her and Grayson life jackets just in case, but only Zoe was able to go this time around.
Her excitment showed as Curt pushed the canoe into the water!
They let her figure out how the paddle worked…
and she could have become an old pro if she was out there longer!
How fun! Zoe’s going to want to take the canoe now every time she comes over 🙂 Btw, love that canoe. Is it a Grumman?
Yup, it’s a 17′ Grumman.
She is SUPER cute. Tom has always talked about getting a kayak… maybe someday!
Yay!!! Looks like fun! Can’t wait!
