I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating.
I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Well we’re about half way through summertime, have you been boating yet?
I only gone boating a couple times this summer. And I’m SO bummed about that. We, as parents, go boating so much less than we did when we were kids and that’s just plain wrong! Mike and I keep talking about boating with our kids. We grew up boating, me more than him. I practically lived on the water, we spent most weekends on lakes. I am dying to get the kids out more! The most we have done is rented small fishing boats and pontoon boats when we visit a state park in our area. It’s pretty pricey though, and that’s why it would be better to purchase our own boat. When we’re ready to take that next step, I’ll be turning to DiscoverBoating.com for help and guidance.
DiscoverBoating.com is an online resource packed with interactive features to familiarize people with all aspects of the water including a boat selector guide, cost comparison tool, renting options, favorite boating destinations, links to education courses – even nautical lingo and how-to videos. Plus, DiscoverBoating.com offers tools and information for experienced boaters looking to learn more.
Discover Boating and Jake Owen

“Growing up on the water, boating has always been a part of my life. I can’t think of anything better than floating down the water, drinking a cold beverage and hanging with your friends.” – Jake Owen

Our Boating Memories
Every time I think about boating, I am brought back to putting my older three kids in the paddle boat at my dad’s cabin. We’d paddle over to the other side of the lake (it was a small lake). On the other side there was a beach and then the pool house. We’d play at the beach for a couple hours and then we’d head to the pool for a while. When we were done, we’d paddle on back to the ‘house’ and they’d all fall asleep. I miss that so much. I remember Gracie’s first time boating too. She was so curious.
We live right on the Fox River in Illinois and it goes on forever and ever… it’s so pretty.
I think it’s about time we take that next step and own our own boat so we can go out anytime we want. Living right on the Fox River has it’s advantages, and boating is surely one of them! We have a lot of marinas and so many places to go.
