This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.
The house we rented on Lake Sammamish came equipped with several different kinds of boats, including a two-seat kayak!
We decided to take this opportunity to knock a thing off our list. To start, Ben took Will out and taught him how to paddle.
Next it was Lucy’s turn. She had a bit more trouble with the paddle, but still did well enough to make it out to the buoy and back.
Ben also took Ryan and Max out for a bit. They were old hands; Tony’s taken them kayaking before.
The next day, Vanessa took Will and Lucy out too!
Ben decided he wanted to catch them.
BONUS ROUND: the house also had a stand-up paddle board. Ben couldn’t help himself, but it being his first time ever standing on one of these (and it being the end of a day on a lake that’s great for waterskiing), he didn’t have it very easy.
That’s all you get. There’s no photo of him falling in. Because he totally didn’t. I SO would have taken a picture of that.
