Messing Around in Boats

There is nothing- absolutely nothing-half so much worth doing
as simply messing about in boats.
-Ratty said to Mole in The Wind in the WillowsDad is such a sport!
It didn't take Leif long to figure out the steering wheel.
He is a boy who likes to be in control.
Great-grandpa got the short end of the stick.
Not sure how he ended up with the guy who couldn't reach the pedals!

Birthdays in our family are always an excuse to party. Lately, we don't get the chance to entertain nearly as often as we would like, so when a birthday rolls around we play it up!

Leif's first birthday was just such an occasion. Running with the Wind in the Willows theme, we started out the bash with a little paddle-boating! Not quite the same as rowing down a river, but it was jolly fun.

Funny! Peter loves to drive as well - anything with a steering wheel keeps him happily "in control" for a long while. :)
