One of the things we like to do is sail. When Charlie and I were dating, one of the most frequent dates was to go sailing at the university sailing club. One of the first major purchases we mad as a married couple was a sailboat. After the kids were born we didn't use it much. Wonder Boy and Jophus (pronounced Jo-fus) are very close in age, only twenty-one months apart. By the time Wonder Boy was old enough to be on the boat, Jophus was too little.

Last year we joined a yacht club, which sounds very snobby and ritzy, but is not. At any rate now we can sail a lot more. Today the weather was perfect-- clear, warm, nice wind. Even though I really didn't want to go because was tired and have a little cold, I sucked it up and did because I knew once we were out there it would be great. And it was! Probably the best sail we've had as a family. (Last summer Pookie didn't like it much, mostly I think because her PFD was uncomfortable.)

We had a picnic there and after the sail the boys swam at the beach even though the water was cold enough to make your toes a little numb. What a great way to end the day!
