Meaghan and Kairi. They’re on a boat. =)

No, that just never gets old. I must’ve said “I’m on a boat” three or four times during the day, and nobody threw anything at me.

Matt arranged a perfect birthday for Meaghan, who pretty much grew up on boats: a trip on her brother’s boat from Brentwood to Portland Island, with food, ice cream cake, a row to shore, kid spinning, raccoon watching, and the nicest outhouse known to man or woman.

I was quite proud that I spent from 10:00 am-6:00 pm on an actual boat, and I didn’t die once.

As an added bonus, I ended the day by jumping (intentionally) off aforementioned boat onto another boat while holding a coil of rope in one hand.

Me = Indiana Jones. =)

This little boat was following us the entire time, there and back.

It kinda freaked me out, but I didn’t say anything ’cause I didn’t wanna worry everyone.

Drunk with the excitement that she’s on a boat, little duck Kitara gleefully waves to a passing buoy.
