Out on the lake

We had the best afternoon with my dad today. We went out on the boat right after a storm and it was beautiful. The water was so peaceful and calm. I am in love with this place and can never soak up enough of the sights, smells, sounds, etc.

I love this picture of my daddy. My mom has been gone a lot lately. She is taking care of her mom, who is terminally sick with cancer. It's a rough time and I know my dad is getting quite lonely. He loves this old boat and I am so glad we could accompany him today.
Kaden had a blast. I had to dive to grab him a few times. He has no fear at all, and I think he would have toppled over the side of the boat, head first, a few times. He loved letting the water spray his arms and face.

Couldn't get the rascal to hold still for one second.

"I do it, Papa!" He's in that, "I-want-to-do-everything-by-myself, don't-help-me, I-will-melt-down-if-it-doesn't-work-how-I-want-it-to," stage. Sometimes endearing, sometimes downright annoying. I'm glad he is wanting to be independent, though. I love that Kaden and his Papa are such good pals.

And this picture is just too silly. I told him to stop jumping in the boat and he pulled this face. And what is up with those flared nostrils? He totally looks like a monkey and that bottom lip couldn't stick out any further. He is such a faker and I don't fall for these faces. He gets mad when I laugh at him, but seriously....that is the goofiest thing I have seen in a while.
