FLOATING LUNCH

We spent Labor Day on our son’s pontoon boat.  It had rained, and the temperatures had dropped just enough to make the day bearable.  It was a fabulous way to end the Summer.

First, we found some good ways to work up an appetite.

I had to take these pictures very quickly, because my family was already removing food from the table while I was snapping pictures.

At home, I can take pictures while everyone is somewhere else in the house.  On a boat, there is nowhere for everyone to go.  I briefly considered pushing them all overboard, so I could get my pictures, but then I decided I might be putting blogging before family, so I snapped while they ate.

We let the ants stay at the picnic, since they delivered our salt and pepper.

All of our food didn’t fit on the little table on the boat, but I’m not going to show you the “seat scape”.  Trust me, it wasn’t a pretty sight.

Our youngest grandson decided that he was the boat captain. Yes, this is the 1.14 pound baby that so many of you prayed for after his birth nine months ago.  Those chubby cheeks are proof that prayers work.  He is a miracle!  (Those are shadows on his check and his right side.  I didn’t want you to think we let him get sunburned.)

At the end of a fun day, it was finally time to leave the water, the Lilly pads, and the sun behind, and head back to reality.

I am posting some of my favorite inspiration photos on Friday.  I hope you’ll come back to see them.  Thank you for floating along with us today.  laurie
