Grab your PFD and let's go!

To all the dads out here...HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! Hope everyone had a great day in whatever way you celebrated. Some had breakfast in bed. Some got a long afternoon nap on the couch. Some had a special dinner. Some got gifts. A lot of ways to celebrate this day...and I hope your way was fabulous!

For me...a relaxing day. A delicious dinner of steak on the grill, potatoes and corn on the cob for dinner.

And gifts! Well, really just one big gift...and a couple of accessories that go along with it. And what was this one big gift?!?!

A little sit-on-top kayak for the campground!

That's right, boys and girls, I'm ready to do some paddling! And just to make it more fun, we actually got two of them so I can go out on the lake with one of the kids or with my wife. I'm so excited, I can't wait for school to be over so we can head to the campground and get out on the lake.

If you're in the neighborhood, stop by. We'll go for a little paddle together!

Good for you, have fun at the lake.

Heh. Knowing me I'd sit on that and promptly capsize.

Great, I can't swim, but you'll save me won't you? cuz, I also don't have great balance.

And what's with the "sit on top"?? Wouldn't that make it even wobblier?

A belated Happy Father's Day!

A KAYAK!?! I am so jealous.

Looks fantastic!

The kayaks and camping sound fun. We're hoping to do more of that soon.

I will trade you my new external DVD burner (FD present) for the Kayak.

Now I am feeling slighted by my family

Ooh, honey, a sit-on-top! Fun. We always use the sit-down-in variety, but I once used a sit-on-top in the San Juan Islands of Washington, and it was a blast. Great day to you, Father Man.

That sounds like so much fun!

Have a great time :)

*grin* Hope you had fun out on your little kayak! And a much-belated Happy Father's Day!

I was seriously jealous till my school district handed me a new wireless laptop lab and my own personal multimedia laptop.

Damn you.
I still want the kayak.
