Getting Ready for Summer Kayaking at Dick’s Sporting Goods

Going shopping with my husband is always an adventure! When we go to Target or Walmart he usually just pushes the cart around and I fill it up. He also helps carry the bags to the car, so that’s always a plus. Earlier this week he asked me if I wanted to go shopping and I immediately knew something was up. 


Apparently he had some Dick’s Sporting Goods gift cards that were burning a hole is his pocket. He has had these gift cards since Christmas, so I was really suspicious about why we had to go this week. He claimed he wasn’t shopping for anything specific, just looking to see what they had. When we pulled in the parking lot, I knew exactly why we had to go this week, Boat Sale!!


Not only did we see the huge boat sale sign enticing him to buy, but the Kayaks are everywhere in the store. Displays in the boating section, in the middle of the store, at the checkout , on the pillars outside. It seemed everywhere we turned in the store, there was some kind of Kayak, calling my husbands name. I am not sure my husband, needs a 2nd Kayak, but he seems to think so. 


Kayaking has been a great way for him to spend time with our family and get exercise to boot! I don’t really care what he does with his gift cards. Boating is a perfect addition to our monthly camping trips, so another kayak would fit right in.  There were so many boats on sale, he couldn’t decide if he really wanted another.


Before you know it there will probably be another kayak to join this one on the roof rack. Does your family enjoy boating? I would love to hear how you spend your time as a family in the summer.
