Pop and grandsons first kayaking!
Submitted: Jul 31, '09
Great Travel Moment
This was the first time our grandsons, Joseph and Tristan, got to go paddling in our kayak with my husband, their "Pop." It was so special to watch, with 5 year old Tristan in the middle, never having held a kayak paddle before that day! Big brother Joseph, age 11, did very well at the bow, but all three sets of paddles seemed to go into the water at different times, making tracking a bit hard for Pop. This year, Tristan is seven, and he said "I hope I don't have to paddle the kayak this time, I don't do it so good!" I fondly recall that day every time we are back at Little River in East Boothbay, Maine, where we share our vacation home with our family as often as possible! Even noticing how much the boys have grown in two years since then brings a tear to my eyes. We are SO blessed to have them at this time in our lives, and thankful they love Maine as much as my husband and I do.
