Row Your Boat

Now if I were a betting person (like a certain husband of mine who shall remain nameless), I would bet you a million dollars that if you told a little girl named Sophia that she had to wear a life jacket in order to go on a boat trip she would fight you to the death before she would allow said life jacket to come within five feet of her. And then, for spite, she would prove me wrong and I'd have to cough up that million. 

I really thought we were going to have an issue on our hands when we were handed this little beauty. But really she didn't fight it too much at all! Unlike the time I was three and I went on a a little field trip to a construction site with a bunch of other kids and our moms to visit our dads at work. We were told that we had to wear a hard hat before we could go out on the site. Well guess who flat out refused to put such an ungodly hat on her head, and instead sat in the office all day in defiance? Yeah, that would be me. I had a feeling that we would be waving from the dock as the boat pulled away. Wrong!

Glad she cooperated. I tried to get Lydia's on her this past weekend to make sure it still and she threw one hell of a fit!!! guess we will not be going on the boat this year

OMG, I had totally forgotten about that little fit of yours. I don't think Sophie is going to be quite as hard headed as her momma(I pray). Lord have mercy you were a handful. Sophie looks to cute!!!! Glad you had a good time.

She doesn't look too excited about it, but at least she has it on! Hope you all enjoyed the Stonewall Resort!

Ah, an unpleasant necessity but a necessity nonetheless. She looks so cute in it!

Avery loves life jackets and seatbelts now... you know why? Because Dora wears them "So we can be safe!" so they must be cool.
Maybe that would make it more attractive for Sophie, I know what a Dora fiend she is :)
