"I want to go on the Ferry!!"

Yesterday was family home evening and we decided to do something a little different.  A friend of mine had a baby a few weeks ago and it was our opportunity to bring her and her family a meal.  The fun part about this is she lives right by a ferry.  So we thought why not take the girls on their first ferry ride.  It did not disappoint.  Unless your name is Savannah and you wanted to know "Where Tinker Bell was?"

  Favorite quotes from the ferry...
"What is that big thing?"
"That's not a fairy, that's a boat."
"What happens if our car falls in the water?"
"Dad, how does this float on the water and hold all of these cars?"
"Look!!  Look!!  Look!!"
"I know this isn't Tinkerbell, but I like this ferry too!"

So we had a great trip across Lake WI.  However, I got a little sea sick...I KNOW!!  Hopefully, that is not some new permanent thing I have.  So, sadly we could not take the ferry back home.  Some one in the car was NOT HAPPY about this...
"I want to go on the Ferry!!"

I think my favorite part is when Ellie and Savannah decided to impersonate their younger Sister...
You know what they say...imitation is the highest form of flattery.  Madelyn however wasn't so sure.  Moroni and I gave it two thumbs up and decided that our life is a pretty great ride!  With or with out the ferry.


  1. Last time we took the ferry it took us an extra 45 minutes of driving through country roads we'd never seen before trying to find it and almost running out of gas but it was worth it. The kiddos love it!

  2. So fun! Looks like your kiddos had a blast! I LOVE the imitation photo. I imitated my 2-year-old when he got mad at me the other day. He laughed, then kicked me. :)

  3. It reminds me of Vashon Island! I think I have to come out and ride the ferry just for old times... I would be disappointed if I was expecting Tinkerbell too! So cute!
