This photo certainly won’t win an award, but I consider it my “best photo of the summer” mainly because it captured a very real, fun (worth remembering) moment with our family. Midway through the summer, Mark came across a “new” boat…at least it was new in 1987. Mark wants a much fancier boat, but this one is filling in quite nicely until we have money saved. What’s even better is that my sister got the same boat, one year newer. This made for fun excursions where all the cousins could get a chance to go tubing, knee-boarding, and jumping off the side of the boat. As this picture indicates, my kids can’t get enough of the water. Nathan (the oldest, most cautious one) really surprised us with how daring and adventurous he became when on the water.
