anna's first boat ride

We took Anna on her first paddle boat ride at Lake Fairfax and I think it was fair to say that she didn't like it one bit. I should have suspected...this was her reaction when we put the life jacket on her.

She eventually calmed down, got on the boat and actually sat still (perhaps involuntary since the jacket restrained any movement) for a while. It was hot and the jacket only made it worse. Poor girl. She toughed it out for about 20 minutes until she finally lost it. Luckily, we were almost at the dock anyway.

This shot is just funny to me!

Once on land and on her feet, she was happy again and we actually got to take in the pretty scenery.

Sigh, oh well. Can't expect all excursions out to be successful and happy. This may not make it as one of the best moments of Summer 2011, but I think I will look back to the pictures with a laugh. See more of them here.

    Nothing like the sound of a wailing baby in the middle of a lake to make everyone's summer outing a little bit more special...
