“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received collateral to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
My family loves summer. I grew up on the beach and around The Sound (kind of like a bay) and I have shared that love of the water to my kids. We spend as much time at the beach or lakes as possible, even though we don’t live to close to any anymore.
Since summer is in full swing, we wanted to get out on the water as soon as we could. I have a close family friend who owes a lovely boat, that given the chance I would buy from him in a heartbeat. It is small and manageable but is big enough to get everywhere and even has a sleeping cabin.
The first time I took my kids and husband out on the boat, was so much fun. We were able to stop the boat for a bit, dive off the sides and go for a swim. My husband, who cannot swim and is not a huge fan of water anyway, needed a bit more coaxing off the side but in the end, even he had fun.
Getting out on the water is a fun way to be outside and to have quality time with family. It doesn’t matter if it is a boat like this or out in a small kyack. Grab some canoes or if you are luck enough, get on some jet skies, a lot of places offer them for rent. It doesn’t matter what you do, get out together and enjoy the water. Discover Boating offers tons of resources to help you and your family, even if you aren’t sure what activities would work for your family and even where to start.
