jon is on the tail end of building a sail boat and jasper lilith finally gets to climb aboard and monkey around in it…  she loves to go out when he is working on it and is very active in trying to “help” jon with the boat – gives jon gray hairs as he works on the boat and makes she doesn’t get herself hurt all at the same time but she loves being out there with him…

when jon gets home, she likes to go out and check on the boat with him – she says, “boat!  daddy, boat!” and off they go to make sure that the boat hasn’t mysteriously disappeared from the garage!

it has been interesting watching jon slowly build the sailboat and seeing it come together bit by bit – it is now obvious as to what it is but for a long time, it looked like something unexplainable…  i will take more pictures the further along jon goes and the final project will be to take pictures of us out on the lake!!  the boat should be ready just as the season changes and how nice will it be to be out on the water to see the leaves change?

ooohhh, i wonder if jon will let me string lights on the boat for nightime?

she is going, “cheese!  cheese!”  for the camera – duncan taught her by example to say “cheese” when she is getting her picture taken 🙂

jon wears this mask when he is doing some major sanding and one of the first things that jasper lilith did when she got into the bones of the boat was to try to put this mask on…  she kept getting her pigtails stuck and jon finally had to lend a helping hand…  she also tried to back herself into that little cubby hole you see right behind her!

just hanging out!  she didn’t want to go inside, i think she thought that the obvious next step would be to get on the water 🙂
