It was a good thing I didn't carry my phone with me!
Believe me, you aren't nearly the first person to ever do that.
I never did it with a peddle boat (I have one at my pond) but I did do it with my alum v hull....from dry land (as I was getting out of the boat from the bow..that's the pointy end for you landlubbers). I didn't actually get wet, but the boat shot out into open water and I'm standing on dry land looking at it wondering if I'm going to have to swim after it. (Wind saved me the trouble)

Oh My Pants! That could have gone wrong quick! I took mine out on a huge lake in our little Jon boat once. Some guys in a big boat went speeding past us and their wake flooded our boat. Of course it was our first one and we didn't know to put the battery to the trolling motor in the middle. So the back end started to sink.... We managed to get over to the shoreline but were headed into some hanging tree branches. There was a spider in its web going straight towards my face so I leaned back a wee bit. Hubbs thought I was going to stand so bear hugged me. Next thing I know I'm under the boat, feet weighing me down bc I had my boots on, not a good experience. Thankfully I was able to stand up and my head broke the surface. But my phone, that he insisted I bring so we could keep track of time, was a goner.

I’m getting nothing done today. DD texted that the youngest had a fever at day care, could I go pick her up? Of course I did and she is what I’ve done all day. :loveI’ll have her tomorrow too.
Hope her fever breaks soon. She gets to spend lots of cuddle time with grandma.
