Stand Up Paddleboarding

We've been pretty busy using all our spare time to work on the house, but this last weekend we took some time off to have some fun for Grammy's birthday! For her birthday, she got stand up paddleboards, and so we headed to the lake! I had never been before, but I really liked it. Ben wasn't crazy about it, he said he much prefers kayaking and sat down on his board and treated it like a kayak. Ellie loved it. It's actually kinda hard to stand up on one of those things, but not for her. She could just pop up like a daisy whenever she wanted. Aiden liked it too, he liked getting on the board, and then diving off into the water. It was nice to be able to just enjoy the break and spending time with  everyone at the lake.

I was not expecting her to be able to paddle at all on her own but she actually did a little bit.  Look at her go! 

Two standing up on the same board-not an easy feat!

We're off! 

And here's how the house is looking. New paint everywhere, new floors on their way to being done (we have a lot more than this done) and lots of other work done. Yay! Getting there!
