Controlled Chaos

Four summers ago, we made a little leap and purchased our first family boat.  She was not anything fancy.  She certainly was not shiny new.  However, our little Viking ran good and allowed us the opportunity to give it a go boating with four little dudes.  True, we get our fair share of stares as we head out with our crew; however, our kids are at their finest out upon our little vessel. 

Our Viking made the trip up to Silver Lake with us the past two summers.  She proved to be of great value shuttling family members across the lake to the dunes.  She was a good 'ole boat, indeed!  Alas, during our recent trip we found ourselves needing something a little bigger and newer.  We began thinking open bow and dare I say faster?  With that, Eric's search began...

Last Sunday, as a family of six, we made a (wildly loud) eight hour round trip to pick up our new Yamaha Exciter.  We have lovingly named her Controlled Chaos.  Fitting, yes?  Sure enough, we headed out in her the same day! 

Backing her up to head out for the first time...

It did not take long for all of us to quickly fall in love...comfy seats, great storage, easy access in and out, and dare I mention again the speed?!


The boys have always enjoyed the opportunity to drop anchor and do a little swimming, toss around a ball, and now the ability to JUMP from the platform. 

Welcome to the family, Controlled Chaos!  We anticipate an overwhelming amount of family fun with you guiding the way!

Yeah for a new boat! My inlaws purchased one a few years back and we love to go up to the lake and enjoy the day. It makes it really nice that they live there and we just go out and have fun and come back in and rest and the go back out. Enjoy!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not
100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
