sail away!

 A few weeks ago, we were able to go sailing with an awesome couple from church.  It had been raining most of that day, but by the time we were ready to set sail, it had cleared up and it was gorgeous weather.
 Of course the boys were all fascinated by everything!  The water, the ropes, the sails, the bathroom, the seats in the back, climbing on the front, the pelicans in the water, the steering wheel, the gauges and switches and knobs, etc.

 We had a yummy dinner, and enjoyed being together.  Krew got a little restless in the middle of our trip, but then he calmed down and enjoyed the rest.
 We turned around simply based on how far out we were and what time we wanted to be back so we could get the kids to bed.  It's a good thing that we didn't turn around ten minutes later!  As we were coming back in, this storm started building and following us.  It kept getting darker, and closer.  We we about 5-10 minutes out when it started raining, and the wind picked up a lot just as we were pulling into the dock.  It sure made for an exciting trip!
 Check out the storm behind my cute boys!
