Up the creek

Sometimes you just have to scratch that itch even when you know scratching might not be the best thing.

I had to have me some outdoors time.

But it's One Hot Summer.

JP and Fly indulged me anyway for a short while yesterday.



That's the bow of my kayak.



That's me, trying to balance a baby on my lap while not flipping us into the creek.



The creek has some nice things going for it, like scenery...



...and wildlife (that's an osprey)...



...and more scenery.

But did I mention how hot it is?

So what did Fly think of his first paddle?



(Orange is really not his color.)

I think I'll wait to go out and paddle again when it's cooler -- much cooler!

Were you scared ?

I have re-curring baby/water dreams/nightmares, so i'm a little anxious around the water ( plus i'm not the strongest swimmer )

Jealous though - i'd love to have the courage !

Looks like you had a nice time. Glad you enjoyed it but...whew...it's definitely on the hot side for anything outside right now.

Giood for you for getting out! I think it is so vital that jkids experience these things. And orange is a fabulous color, the color of a cautious mama!

Orange makes him look even hotter. Summer is a beast and should be thrown into the pit, never to return.

I am impressed! I have never done that before, especially with a baby. You must have very good balance. You pics are great!

Great pictures! I don't think that I'm coordinated enough to have pulled that off!

I think he's just precious in orange!

(I, on the other hand, look jaundiced.)

Can't believe you ventured out into this wretched heat. Please, humor me now and go make yourself some iced tea. (lots of sugar. we here in the south know that sweet tea is the ONLY tea.)

You are brave! I am avoiding all places without a/c this summer. It looks like fun though, perhaps in October... :)

I went kayaking the other day as well... and it is hot, hot, hot here as well... and I had a little guy on my lap as well... and so I am quite impressed that you actually took photos during it! How on earth did you manage that one? I'm impressed.

Sounds like a fun time!

You are brave though with him on the canoe...I have no sense of balance so we would have been tipped!

you're brave! I won't go in a little boat in the river. The airboat was enough!
