I love the water. When we went camping last weekend, I spent a lot of time in the water. Our campsite was right on the lake. It was wonderful!
Mom and Dad brought my blow-up swimming pool to keep me cool.
We also brought our canoe. A canoe is a boat with pointed ends. You use paddles to make it go.
Mom and Dad have a rule. When anyone uses their canoe, they must wear a life jacket. In fact, every person in the boat must wear a life jacket.
Why is it important to wear a life jacket? Canoes are very tippy. If the canoe tips over, you will get very wet. A life jacket will help to keep your head above water.
