Last weekend we went down to the Willamette river in Newberg to watch my dad launch his boat. He built it himself, so we were all very excited when it supported at least three adults and one child without capsizing! Really, he did an amazing job and it was a beautiful piece of nautical craftsmanship.
James and I played a little football while we waited for our turn (sadly, we didn't have any "size 5 months" life jackets, so Jamesy had to sit this one out).
Among others, my sister and grandparents on my Mom's side came down to witness history
Julie and Daphne took a long walk down a slightly longer pier. Daphne was heard to say to herself slowly and somberly "Don't fall in, you get verrrry saaaad."
