The new boat...summer fun begins!

Not sure that most of you know (well, how would you if I never blogged about it??) but our family has had a boat for the last 7 years. The hubby and I bought it before we had kids, before we were even married. It was a great boat for us. Fast. Fun. I got tan. Not a care in the world. We would trailer it back and forth from our house to water.
What happens next? Kids happen. Boating trips seem to get less frequent. The boat is not really family friendly as it does not have a cabin or a bathroom. We have taken Christopher out on it and even trailered it up to Lake George, NY on vacation. But since having Anthony last year, I have not gone on it and nor have the kids. So, as we had discussed many times before, we were thinking about getting a new boat a few weeks ago. Well, you live once, so we decided to go ahead and do it! It has a small cabin and a bathroom. It is perfect for now. If we decide in years to come we need something bigger we can always trade this one in.

So, the hubby decided to 'name' the boat without telling me. Our other boat never had a name. To my suprise, we picked up the boat and it was named....

The hubs calls me 'his Jenni' so it is named after me. How sweet....

We took the kids out  this weekend since the weather was beautiful. Christopher had to get used to it since he hadn't been on a boat in awhile. Anthony was not having the life jacket! He kept trying to take it off. The boys loved the little cabin. They thought it was so fun hiding in there!

Stinky ocean smells....
Alseep alas......

Oh fun! Congrats on the new boat! I would love to have a boat one of these days if we ever get close to the coast again.

Enjoy your summer!!!
