Today we invited some friends to head out for a day sail with us. We only had one taker, Eric, and we had a blast! The winds were very gusty when we got underway and we were heeling like crazy, pulling 10 knots under reefed sails. After a while the wind settled in at 10-15 knots and we had a nice sail around Hat Island. Eric (in the pic!) took the helm way more than I ever have and did awesome! The funny moment of the day was when I was at the bow messing with the genoa furler as we pulled into the channel and got SMACKED by a wave! So cold and wet! The boys got a kick out of it. Despite wind right on the stern we moored easily, cracked open some adult beverages, and relaxed in the cockpit. Another great day out on the water!

I just got back from yet another week in San Diego and will be heading back there on Sunday. While I was there, Frank was super-Dad once again. Here he is washing dishes, even after I got home and offered to help! He even somehow found time to do laundry AND install a new toilet in the forward head! He is absolutely awesome!
Hopefully we will head out sailing with some friends tomorrow!

Though we've been pinned to the dock this weekend with high winds and I've been sick, we did manage to relax a bit and have a fun Easter. This morning I snuck out to do laundry and hide eggs, then Frank brought the kids up to hunt! It was so cute watching them run around. They even shared nicely!
