One of the best things about South Texas, the weather.
One of the worst things about South Texas, the weather.
One of the things that makes summer weather bearable, being able to take the boat out and go fishing.. the breeze off the water and the kids smiles, laughter and squeals of delight… make even a 100 degree day with sopping, heavy 100% humidity.. wonderful.
This is the first summer that we’ve had a boat and I cherish the memories that we’ve made.
Whether it was learning how to cast the Barbie Pole for the first time with Daddy.
Passing out from the sheer exhaustion and excitement and sleeping on the boat under Daddy’s jacket for 2 hours, which added a blissful bit of silence to the afternoon…
Or the best catch I could ever hope for…
The memories that my family and I made this summer out on the water, with our fishing poles are some that will always make me smile.
I cherish and am grateful for the laughter of my children, the wild eyed excitement as they experienced that sense of flying in a way that can only be experienced on a boat soaring down a smooth body of water with the wind whipping through their hair and ripping the screams of delight from their mouths and tossing them back onto the wake behind us.
Those smiles, laughter, screams and slimy fish scale covered days… they are what this summer was made of and I hope that my children will remember them with as much fondness as we do.
This post comes straight from my heart and I’m thrilled to add it to the Tuesday Tribute portion of Moxie Mona’s Around the Blogosphere in 5 Days
Below you can even see Mona helping to steer on one of our many summer fishing excursions.
