We also spent quite a bit of time in the accessories shop, since if the deal went through, we would need EVERYTHING...life vests for everyone, gas cans, locks, an anchor, first aid kit, etc. Of everything we looked at, Loudoun only wanted a flare gun. Can you blame him? They are pretty fun. We settled on an air horn.
We had an awesome salesman who was super friendly and was very accomodating with our 2 young kids. He even went home and grabbed his hitch to give to us, because he said he never used it. Who does that? I was impressed and so grateful.
I have to admit, too, that our kids were FANTASTIC. They were a little loud and giggly, and ran up and down the aisles a bit much for my liking, but they were in good moods and didn't break anything. And we were amongst bikers and boaters...they don't care about noise, right?
We signed some papers, walked a few more laps, and after a total of 3 hours (plus an hour drive to get there), it was finally time to pull our truck around to get our new Seadoo and trailer hitched up to our car.
Rick was a little nervous towing it for the first time, but he was successful and even got it into our driveway on his first attempt.
We took it out last Sunday to a local lake, because we just HAD to get it in the water. I see many lake weekends ahead of us....hmmmm, how about this weekend? Grandma is watching our kids for the weekend...I think it's the perfect time for Rick and I to see what our new "Green Machine" can do.
