Day 2 of Sailing with Friends

When you decide to entertain and your honey cleans the boat all shiny and white and your ice chest is stocked with beer and corn crack and the weather is perfect and the summer is ending and you have made so many promises, you might as well host as many people as you can fit into one holiday weekend.  So on Monday morning we rolled our children out of bed and forced them back into swimsuits and headed back to the boat (it's only 30 minutes) and this time we took these two cute kids and their parents with us.

They are yet another Mayo family we love. 

Cecilia is fearless like Lucy.

These two had so much fun playing together. They made a clubhouse down below and giggled as only five year old girls can.  

They played in the raft and swam until they were just tuckered out. 

We ate yummy spinach dip and roasted corn salad and delicious watermelon. And we talked about how everything tastes better on a boat. Emma Jane wants to open a restaurant called "better on a boat". I think she might be on to something. 

The weather today was absolutely perfect. It was in the mid eighties. The wind was perfect around 10-12 miles an hour. There were only white puffy clouds in the sky. Today was the kind of day you want when trying to introduce someone to the sport of sailing. Perfect. 

By one count there were 22 SAILboats on the water today. One of them was this lovely couple, Scott and Yolanda. They just took their boat, Della Grace, to Lake Superior for over a month and lived aboard. She is a beautiful boat owned by an equally beautiful couple. 

I hope your Labor Day was full of food and friends and sun and fun. Ours sure was.
