We arrived home from five- yes five hours at the beach yesterday to find my Dad had cut out these cute little wooden boats for the Littles. After setting down in a shady spot under the back deck we got to work with the finishing aspects of Poppa's awesome little boats- after five hours of some intensive playing and swimming with friends this was the perfect remedy to help a couple of Littles unwind.
As always my Littles had a great time painting- The Boy going for more of a camouflage effect where as Miss Lo went mostly pink- quell surprise! A sturdy mast was glued in place and we topped their ships with sails made of craft foam- super simple- and water proof.
The Littles loved this post beach, pre-dinner project and so did the adults as we sat in the shade sipping a few libations- most essential after five hours at the beach! Today is our final day in Peachland and of course we are headed back down to he lake for more swimming- we will also set our boats out on their maiden voyage!
This week has flown by- filled with loads of family, lots of emotion, friends old and new and a whole lot of swimming. As much as I love visiting the Okanagan I am looking forward to being back in my own home- sometimes I think I go away just to have that feeling of coming home! My wish for you dear Friends is that this weekend is filled with sunshine, laughter and love- Happy Friday!
