“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
Every summer since I was a kid I have spent almost every weekend boating on the water. Each year I feel like it somehow gets ever better. Maybe it is because now I can share with my kids my love of all things boating. If you are looking to get your feet wet check out Discover Boating which is an unbiased online resource to explore the enjoyment and accessibility of the boating lifestyle. It is full of so much information to get you started from information on rentals to the differences between different types of boats if you are having a hard time finding the right one for your family. They even list for you Youth Boating Programs that are located near you. I will have to check them out for my girls as they get older!
These are pictures from our adventures just this last week. I have been especially excited because this is the first summer my 5 year old has actually gone water skiing all by herself and on actual skis. She was flying and smiling the entire time. She did multiple loops around the smaller part of the lake and I think she would have gone all day if we had let her.
We also have been taking the boat out right after dinner but before bed for some peaceful rides. Nothing special just the wind in our face and the beautiful water and sky to enjoy looking at. Even my youngest enjoys boat riding since boating needs no minimum age.
We even checked out the Electrical Light Boat Parade at Disney World and we watched it from one of the resort boats. It was so incredibly cool to look at and it is the longest running parade at Disney World. I am hoping to get into kayaking with my little family next year as I love the idea of getting exercise while getting out on the water. Check out the Discover Boating website where you can learn more about Jake Owen, the famous country music star, and his lifelong love of boating. I just love his music! There is still plenty of summer to be had so check out some local boating options and give it a try!
