sun, 7/18...day 199

It was a beautiful day, and we took advantage of the cool, sunny weather by going out on our first kayak outings of the summer.
Niall and I went out first, for a long paddle up the slough, much farther than we've ever gone before. He has more stamina for paddling this year than he did last year!

As we drifted on the current back downstream toward Grandma's, he kicked back and relaxed - but wanted to hold my hand. So sweet!

Cory and I also paddled further than we did last year, and also went downstream a ways too. We got to see the blue heron - so regal and striking. Cory decided to collect a few grasses, leaves, and other items so that he could "study them later."

He and Niall were both so funny: both wanting to be "in charge" and issue commands about paddling and stopping, going right or left. I guess someone forgot to tell them that the person in charge is the one paddling in the stern. :P
