Rain Gutter Regatta

Rain Gutter Regatta

 

I’ve been so exhausted lately that I’ve not been visiting any fellow bloggers OR keeping you all up to date on what’s happening in the ‘Burbs!
I still need to share some photos about Broomball but first I want to tell you about the Rain Gutter Regatta! Last night Jacob and I won our first heat but lost in the second heat. I guess it’s a good thing because then we didn’t have to take on our friends in the final round.
Rain Gutter Regatta is apparently a Boy Scout tradition however I remember having our own kind with paper boats and the GIANT floods in our backyard. I was very excited to get to assemble a boat kit and decorate the sail and boat as I wished. When it was our turn we donned a life vest, blew wind into our sail through a straw and raced the boat to one end where my husband took over the life vest and the “wind” portion of the race. It was all pretty exciting!
This all took place at Cheeseburger in Paradise where the races will continue for the next 2 weeks. Go get your race on!
