Early Mother's Day

We had planned on going to Falls Lake today for Mother's Day, but the weather forecast was not very good. On the other hand, yesterday was a perfect day to be outside. The humidity was low, the sun was shining, and the air was in the high 70s. We packed up a picnic and went to Falls Lake with the kayaks.

I can say that we heartily endorse the Beaver Dam area of Falls Lake. We had lunch at a picnic table right by the water. Then we got to work on the kayaks. The only negative was that Noah had to poop not once, but twice while we were setting them up. Amanda looked on the bright side in that he didn't have to while we were out on the boats.

Amanda and Lily manned the hard kayak while Noah sat in the back of the inflatable. It took me a little time to get used to it, but once I did I had a nice time. We spent about an hour and a half on the lake. Noah napped through most of it. I guess he wanted to be like Jesus taking a nap in the stern of the boat.

We had a great time as a family, but we were certainly tired by the end of it all. The way the day is shaping up today it may end up being something of a dud, so I'm glad that we got out yesterday. The important thing is that Amanda said that she had a good time.
