We started the summer with a membership to Senobe, on lake Banook. Maeve was eager to paddle, but nervous as well. As you can see in these pictures though, she had SO much fun and really took to paddling. She and Athena spent the better part of July mastering the kayak, and tackled the canoes in August. Maren and Beckett also had fun at Kiddie Kayak, learning to paddle with some great teachers.
It took us a couple of weeks to really get into the groove of packing a million snacks, setting up the tent, towels, bathing suits, beach toys, etc., but it was a great way to spend the summer and we'll definitely do it again. :)
And then we had Maeve's 7th Birthday. The Maritime Reptile Zoo came out and did a great show. :)
