"Diver" is the word heard most often these days from little Zach. Since Dada is taking SCUBA, it seems he wants to be just like dada! Doug had a DVD from his SCUBA lessons that has a video montage of fish and divers set to mellow music. We don't allow Zach to watch TV or videos, but I figured this was harmless watching with dad -- and now he is hooked. He puts on the mask and snorkel and like to spot the different animals he sees... sharks, grouper, turtles, rays, mahi, stars, haha fishies (clown fish), humus (short for humu humu nuku nuku apua'a which is Hawaiian for Trigger Fish... don't ask)... you get the idea. He takes the fins and yells "kick kick kick".
I think he has something like 12.5 years to go before he can get certified. Hopefully the aquarium and a snorkel will do it until then.

Well... I should have done this when Zach was born, but I am slow. So I am going to post some photos to get us up to date from the past 19 months.
Zach was brought home from the hospital to the boat and has been a boat baby ever since. We are docked at our home port for now, but plan to head out again when Z is about 5-6 years old.
Here are some favorite photos from the past year and a half.
