row, row, row your boat.

On Tuesday Jonathon, the kids and I decided to go canoeing downtown Austin on Lady Bird Lake. It was so fun! The weather was perfect. We saw turtles, fish, a crane, ducks, and a big ugly black swan that was a little too close for comfort. (we used out mad paddling skills to get out of his way.) The kids loved it. Lyndon was excited from the second he put on his life jacket. Maddie--or should I say Nervous Nelly--was a bit more cautious. She loosened up after 20 minutes and ever since can't wait to go again. Just one of the many fun things to do in Austin.

(I didn't want to risk taking my camera in the boat so I got some pictures when we were finished.)

Wow you guys are so brave! I would have been worried the kids would jump overboard :) Austin sounds awesome, how crazy just to go canoeing in the middle of the city!
