In a previous blog post, I mentioned that we hoped to go canoeing and kayaking one more time before the weather gets cooler – and we did! Sunday morning we went kayaking with our good friends Catalina, Craig, and their son.
We started at our usual place at the boathouse under the Key Bridge in Georgetown. Here are a few fun pictures of the boys getting ready to go.
It was a little windy, so the boathouse crew recommended that everyone use kayaks instead of canoes (kayaks are easier to maneuver in the wind). Noah has gone canoeing a handful of times, but this was his first time in a kayak – very cool!
We paddled upstream from the boathouse for a while…
And then we paddled downstream from the boathouse too and went by Roosevelt Island, the Kennedy Center, and the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington.
Here’s a short video from our kayaking trip. Yep, we had a very fun crew! (As a quick reminder: If you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video.

We were on the Potomac River for just over an hour. It was definitely a HOT, HOT, HOT morning, but we had a great time! Noah’s only complaint was that his butt got wet from the damp kayak seat. Other than that, his first ride in a kayak was a success!
