Maiden Voyage

If there is one thing Andy and I agree on the most, it is spending quality time with our family. With Andy’s job as a business man it requires much of his time. Because of that, the boys are often times in bed before he gets home throughout the week and I’m usually tired and ready to just relax. So we definitely don’t get quantity, which makes it important for us to have quality. I feel I know we are spending quality time together when whatever we do is important enough to become a memory.

We decided that a good option for our family to spend quality time together, would be for us to get a boat.  Don’t get me wrong, that was not the only reason we decided to get one, it has been Andy’s dream to own a boat. Truth be told it’s always been mine as well, I have just never had the desire to take care of one or be the one to load it and unload it. It TERRIFIES me, so I have a lot to learn.

We had a fun/stressful time trying to design the boat together and it still didn’t end up looking quite like we had imagined. But we can’t complain.

It was an extremely exciting day when we got the boat and we couldn’t wait to take it out. Unfortunately Texas decided to become a rainforest this year and so far we have only taken it out a handful of times due to the lakes being closed from flooding 9 shouldn’t complain about the rain either. We have been grateful for the moisture) But the actual Maiden Voyage was a success (other than a minor tare in the seat from the surf board sliding into it… AAAH!) We brought our friends The Airhart’s with us and not long after we went with them again. The pics I have are a combination of both trips. Thanks to Melissa for taking some great shots!

Andy could not wipe this smile off his face the entire time!

We are grateful we have this opportunity to spend this quality time with our friends and family. I look forward to the memories that will come from being together on the lake.
