Electric Boat Company
In honor of our twelfth anniversary and Father's Day we wanted to do something special as a family so we rented a boat from the Electric Boat Company on Lake Union. I have always wanted to rent one of these cute boats, so I figured now was as good a time as any. I spent a couple hours putting together a festive picnic with thoughtful touches like homemade lemonade and brownies and then rounded out the rest of the meal with our favorite Salt Spring Island cheese, crackers, baguette, salami, fresh fruit and veggies. With Cameron driving the boat and me chasing Jasper around it was a little less relaxing than I had anticipated, but Jasper was thrilled to see all the "big boats" and I never grow tired of watching a seaplane take off or come in for a landing.

A simple picnic to celebrate us!
Jasper is never far from the food.
On the boat there was an audio hook up so we listened to a few our favorite songs along with a heavy dose of Caspar Babypants for Jasper.
I am grateful for my little family and the life we have built together over the past twelve years. We might not have it all, but we have our health and each other and that is pretty much all I could ever ask for!
Ha! Our appropriately named boat, "Spoiled Watten"
