Maiden Voyage of the SS Bellyflop

Our little community had their countywide yard sale weekend this past weekend.  The kidlets scored BIG. They found a Coleman 4 person rubber raft ( not sure I want to see 4 persons in that raft)  and oars for a whole $20.00. Of course, being the cooperative angels that they are, they each coughed up $10.00 of their hard earned lawn mowing money.  They were now the very proud owners of the SS Bellyflop.  Let us hope it fares better than the SS Minnow.

Sunday was the BIG day and guess what? We found the air pump but no end thingys to fill the beast with air. We even stopped by our local Wally-World after church, but they only sold the complete air pump and attachments. What’s a kid to do? Caleb went out to the shop and used his noggin. He rigged up the air compressor and nozzle to fit. Naturally I didn’t get a pic of it. But it worked and made happy kidlets.

Here are a few pics of them on the pond. They even talked their parental units to take a spin. I am in trouble though, I fell in love with this little pond.

    Wow, that raft looks like a worthy investment! Pretty neat. So where are the pictures of Mom on the raft?

    yes Mom, the pics are a little blurry. Not too bad, just not crisp clear.
