I'M SAILLLLIIIIINNNNGGG!!!!!!

Well here has been our most recent hobby. We are having so much fun sailing on the Hobie Cat. We go to Lake Perris just a few miles away for the afternoon. It is amazing how fast those things go. The wind is blowing and you are halling. The Cat is maded up with two pontoons that keep you afloat and a trampoline in the middle of the those two things. You sit on the edge and go. When the wind is really good you go up on one side. So FUN! Kinda scary and yes we have tipped the boat a couple of times but that makes it even more fun. We invite lots of friends to go out with us. A family from our ward goes all the time and we have a ball together. They are good sailors and are learning a ton from them especially Steve"o". It's fun to get both boats going at the same time.

Please tell me that your "I'm sailing" quote is from "what about bob?" That is my favorite movie and we endlessly quote from it.
WHAT FUN to have a SAIL BOAT!!! I love it. You two are the best!

Awesome and fun hobby Erin. Was the sailboat a purchase or a rental? Either way- props to you two for figuring out how to sail!
We are great, Jake looks more and more like his Daddy all the time!

Erin take a look at Stephanie Meyers Website... she has some pic of what she thinks the characters look like! very interesting. I am 1/2 way into the 2nd book- it is still intense but not sure if i like it as much as the 1st book... tell me what you think & sailing looks like so much FUN!

Erin,
This is Chip. My wife showed me your comment on our blog a couple of weeks ago. It was so good to hear from. I cant believe you have been married for four years. Congrats on graduating from school. Hope all is well.

Growing up my Dad owned a Hobie Cat and we would sail in Mission Bay down in San Diego. Lots of good memories on one of those bad boys. I would like to formally request more pictures of the boat tipping and you guys swimming for safety.

Hi, I just bought an old 16 ft Hobie. I don't know how to sail but my boyfriend and I want to learn. How did you two learn? Did you take lessons? I would love it if you coud steer us in the right direction. Were you at the lake last weekend? I think I recognize your boat. We were biking around the lake.
Hope to hear from you!
