Another Teenager in the House....

All of our children are officially teenagers!
Our youngest, Regan, turned 13 on August 16, 2008 at 10:31p.m.
Of all the things she could do for her birthday, she chose to take a pontoon boat down the Verdigris River and go thru the lock and dam. We planned to leave about 10:00 a.m. when we discovered we had a dead battery on the boat. After two hours, we were tooling UP the river on our birthday adventure.
It was quite exciting! There was a lot of erosion from the recent flooding in our state. We had a beautiful day, cloudy, chilly and no rain. I think the temperature only reached 82 that day. It felt in the 70's for most of the trip.
We traveled almost to our house actually....it took about 2 hours. We found a nice campground and docked the boat, ate lunch and sat around for a bit.
We loaded the boat and headed back down river and the total trip was about 5 hours long.
I want to thank Mom and Paul for making Regan's birthday so memorable for all of us. I'm sure it was harder than they made it look to make it work.
I also want to thank Bonnie and Charles aka Grandma and Grandpa for spending the day with us.
My next few posts will be pics of the trip.
Happy Birthday Regan....welcome to the teens. I love you for your quirkiness, your passions, your love for others and for just being YOU.
