Brooklyn's First Boat Ride

Kind of hard to believe that we headed out to the lake in February! That's just one of the joys of living in Texas :)

Loni decided it would be a good idea to try the life jacket on Brooklyn before we got out to the lake. Mostly we had to make sure that it fit, but we also felt it might be wise to be prepared in case she hated it. But her little trusting eyes in this picture are looking up at her Grandpa to see what he thought.

Loni also lathered her up with Water Babies sunscreen, then said that Brooklyn smelled like a Cabbage Patch baby! Really it was a wonderful smell. And we did get some smiles from her as soon as we discovered that she vastly prefers to stand up so she can see the water out the back of the boat.

Her eyes closed and her nose in the wind - I do believe we have a little sailor baby amongst us! She even did a little dancing to the Alan Jackson song that was playing.

Of course, being out in the wind and the sun can really tire out a baby girl. What a little doll baby she is! And have I mentioned just how much I love my granddaughter??? :)
