Baby's First Boat Ride

By Natalie |

A weekend ago we took Huck with us to the Central Park Boat House to rent us a boat and go kicking around the pond near Bethesda Fountain with some friends. It was our first time taking Huck in a vehicle operated on water. For whatever reason, it felt sort of momentous to me.

I was vaguely worried that he’d get squirmy and fall off the boat, or we’d get squirmy and accidentally toss him off the boat (!!) or a rogue 10-foot wave would capsize our ship and Huck would slide right out of his little life vest and suddenly turn too slippery to grab and then the bottom of the shallow pond would give out and I’d forget how to swim! But, in the end, we were all totally safe.

And we saw turtles!

More after the jump.

Woohoo! It’s like a vacation slideshow!

Yes, that is Scooby Doo on his life vest.

I suppose all that is left now is Baby’s First Above-Ground Train, Baby’s First Helicopter, and possibly also Baby’s First Camel Ride. Yes?
