Do they make infant life preservers? Would it matter if they did; could an infant actually preserve his life with one? My guess is a parent and their life jacket suffice…right?
Well, the Little Dude had his first boat ride yesterday…sans life jacket…please don’t tell Social Services.
It was perfect. We were watching that amazingly boring World Cup championship (Don’t get me wrong, I played soccer from kindergarten through college…I like it, but that game was lame even for soccer fans.), and Mrs. Dude’s Dad, aka Rex, saved us from boredom with a cruise on his power boat.
It was a gnarly summer day; bright sun, blue skies, calm water, hot, but with a good breeze.
Boats seem like a lot of work and money, but they sure are fun to be on. It’s a whole new perspective from the water; literally and figuratively. The trip refreshed all of us.
The Little Dude loved the motion and the breeze, and Mrs. Dude commented that it was the “most fun [she’s] had since being eight months pregnant”…when the real discomfort set in.
We made a point to stop a couple times to hop overboard to swim, so the Princess was delighted, and the Dude soaked in the entire experience…all the while silently singing I’m on a Boat in my head.
