The last couple years Keith has taken two weeks of vacation together. The first week of vacation the weather was very HOT! The first week we went boating up at the river a few times, visited our local water park a few times and took a day trip to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to an awesome water park there. Since we knew that we would be boating more than once in two weeks we left the boat in Bloomfield at Grandpa and Grandma Leader's house to save us from hauling it back and forth.
The kids love to hang out in the front of the boat and feel the wind blowing. These sailboats were all out one day when we were there. On this trip, Erica and Cara stayed at Grandpa and Grandma's house and helped Grandma learn more about her new Cricut machine.
Usually boating always involves jumping in and swimming around the boat to cool off. Boating also involves packing a cooler filled with sandwiches, drinks and snacks. We love vacation time at our house, but we were sad that our two weeks of fun were over.
