Our 2nd Paddle Boat Day!



The weather started out yesterday not looking so good for our paddle boat ride but...out came the sun around 11:30 and radar showed storm north of us! 

So grandkids and I packed up our lunches, put Kalee in her kennel and off we went to Independence Oaks for the afternoon! 

We did the paddle boat last year for the first time and had a blast!  I did a post on it here.  So kids were anxious to go again.  No fishing this year, which did disappoint Amber a tad but she got over it quickly (thank goodness!).  The picture above is our 2nd boat we took out.  The first boat we each had peddles but on this neon one only those in the first row could peddle. 





The kids had fun sitting in the back and putting their feet in the water.  I didn't think we were going to make it back the 2nd time around!  The wind was really hitting us and it just felt like we weren't going anywhere!  Which at times we didn't!  Had to maneuver the boat to go with the current at times then swing around!  Geezz...who knew grandma was nautical! 

We did stop at the Nature Center but there was a school group so we couldn't go in.  Instead we walked along some of the trails that took us back to the car!  All in all a nice afternoon.  Although, my legs didn't think it was nice last night!  Advil to the rescue!
