24x24: Saturday, June 19, 2010

Location: Just North of Chattanooga at Wolftever Creek on Harrison Bay

9:40 a.m. - Morning boat ride to get the weekend off to a great start

9:45 a.m. - Haley laughs at Hannah's antics

9:46 a.m. - Nathaniel enjoys the boat ride to the fullest

9:48 a.m. - Nick grins at the jokes that big kids are telling, mostly quotes from their favorite TV shows, mostly centered around bodily functions

9:49 a.m. - Hannah shows me her new snaggletooth grin

11:26 a.m. - Back at the dock, Nathaniel perfects his cannonball

11:31 a.m. - Nick jumps off the dock frog-legged, the same way he's jumped since he was younger than Jake

11:37 a.m. - Jakey jumps off the dock to Grayson, fearless, for already the 200th time that day

1:31 p.m. - Jack practices driving the boat while it's docked

2:10 p.m. - Jakey jumps off the boat to Grayson ... he cannot be deterred from all the fun in the open water

2:10:02 p.m. - Jack cheers Jakey on as he hits the water

3:45 p.m. - Back at the dock, Haley hangs off the ski rope

3:51 p.m. - Nick practices diving off the dock

4:12 p.m. - Jakey gets back into the swing of things, jumping off the walkway to Grayson, six feet below

7:26 p.m. - Continuing the tradition of a sunset boat ride, the kids pile in the front of the boat for the best view, Jakey already half-asleep after the big day

7:34 p.m. - Nathaniel counts his blessings that we're back out on the boat

7:41 p.m. - Jack and Jake bond over fatigue and having little control over one's destiny

7:55 p.m. - Jack rebounds and gives us a big grin

8:11 p.m. - Haley's hair whips in the wind

8:22 p.m. - The kids raise their hands to try to touch the bridge as we pass under it

8:31 p.m. - Jakey, practically asleep sitting up, watches birds fly past the boat

8:39 p.m. - Jack and Hannah look forward, Jack's curls lit by the setting sun

8:49 p.m. - The kids soak up the last few minutes of daylight, OUR kids wondering how they got so lucky as to stay up -- and be out on a BOAT, no less -- after 9:00 at night

8:57 p.m.

8:58 p.m.
