Good family fun.
My wife (aka the SheppyBrew Beer Model) has tried out paddle boarding a few times and seemed to enjoy it.
I thought that getting her a paddle board would be a something she would enjoy.
She had a birthday over the weekend, and this is the year I decided to buy her one.
Nothing too fancy. I decided to get an inflatable one that could be packed up so that transporting it would be fairly easy.
Over the weekend, we headed up to the Lake Dillon area to have her try out her new toy.
We headed to a day-use area along the lake with the new paddle board, the kayaks, my portable grill, and food to spend the day.
We pumped up the board, and found a spot on the shore to set up.
The wife tried out her new SUP (Stand up Paddleboard) for the first time.
She got up with no problems and took off over the lake.
While she and the boys were out kayaking and SUPing, I stayed on the shore and set up the grill.
We had burgers.
The boys each got to try the paddle board.
And I got a few turns in one of the kayaks.
It was a fun day.
The wife really enjoyed her new gift.
Impressively, she never fell into the water all day.
Hopefully, we'll get lots of use out of the board and that will prompt us to use the kayaks more.
We'll see how it goes.
