Day at the Islands!!!

Today Brad and I took the kids on his parents boat with them over to Kelley's Island. Caiden loves going out on the boat. He asks all summer "when can we go out on grandma and grandpa's boat again". This was Hailey first time and she did pretty good. She didn't really like wearing the life jacket but other than that she loved watching the water and other boats.
When we got to the island we rented a golf cart and road around on it for about 3 1/2 hours, stoppping at parks and and the beach and just enjoying the nice weather. Both kids ended up falling asleep on the golf cart! (of course the only time they nap were out somewhere and we can't nap with them) We stopped and ate and got ice cream (double chocolate- it was so good) and just really relaxed.

Caiden had a blast at the beach but i couldn't help but feel uneasy all day being out on and by the water after hearing about little Hannah's horrible accident. Although i've never met her and have hardley ever read there blog I can't get her out of my head. I think about her nonstop and just pray that her family is doing okay. I couldn't even begin to image the pain they are going through. It really makes me realize how fragile life is and to cherish EVERY moment you have with your children because you never what what tomorrow will bring.

I hope you don't mind me reading your blog, but I was reading this post and I feel the same way you do. I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and I am super paranoid with them around water now. Just felt I needed to share that with you.
