Boating in the city

The other day there was a break in the ever-present clouds, and it just so happened to be Daniel's day off!  I quickly grabbed the picnic basket and started making peanut butter sandwiches, as if in a race against the rain.  The drear held off though, all day long, and we enjoyed a lazy boat ride on Green Lake, complete with take-out gyros and thermoses of hot tea for the adults, and thick brownie wedges for the kids.
The view from the boat.
The kids' "auntie," who is our house-helper/family-member came along, too. It wouldn't have been a family outing without her.
We got home just in time to put everyone down for a nap.  This is the stuff memories are made of.
