Once of twice a year, our staff team plans a Team Building event. This time, it was my turn to pick and so I chose an activity I love to do… but don’t get to do it very often: kayaking.
On Tuesday, instead of all heading into the office for a day of meetings like we normally do… we put on a little layered “outdoor wear” and headed for Crooked Lake. Al Steiff generously offered to be our guide (with little to no arm twisting) and off we went with 4 kayaks and two canoes.
The day turned out to be beautiful – the temperature was above average from what we had experienced lately and it was nice not to be bundled up in the sweatshirts and coats we had thought we would need. The lake was calm and gorgeous and we had a great time exploring little nooks and crannies.
Around noon we stopped at a small island and enjoyed a packed lunch and a little time to just hang out and chat. Then back to the lake and heading back in. It was fun to see Mike and Aaron experience this for the first time.
Later that evening we went out to Mark’s house with our spouses and enjoyed steaks on the grill, a fabulous dinner, and a great end to a wonderful day.
