The result of Lucy and Boogie's "day at the beauty shop" playdate.
Getting loaded into the boat with Daddy. Yes, this life jacket looked crazy (and gave Lucy the appearance of a dog with one of those plastic cones around its head), but... it was the only Coast Guard-approved one we could find for babies. We'll just call it outdoor chic.
She was a little scared at the sound of the motor at first, but Lucy soon settled into Daddy's arms and started to enjoy the scenery.
Hand-off to Mommy in the back of the boat. Lucy really enjoyed watching for the birds flying over the lake -- she'd point them out and exclaim, "dog!".
We had a wonderful, relaxing boat ride (even thought it was around 97 degrees outside) and are already looking forward to doing it again next year. Andrew's completely convinced Lucy will be ready to fish next summer, and yes -- she does already have a fishing pole. It's black with hot pink glitter and is called the "Lady Angler." Pop Pop picked up it from Bass Pro for one of my baby showers last year. It was a big hit. :)
