Look for 3 person Kayak

Dad and I love to kayak but would like to take our daughter. We were hoping to find a 3 person kayak but I am having trouble finding anything online.
I have seen a few families out using them but they usually have one small child. Ours is only 5 but she is already 80 pounds!

Anyone have any ideas besides splitting up and using 2 kayaks?

If you are looking for a kayak for three, consider a pirogue if a skirt is not needed. ** Cajun Pirogue Boat Kit Photos
You might find flat water hunting kayaks with a large enough cockpit for three also

I recommend one of these things.
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

Consider canoes. Start with an OC-2 and stick her in the middle (oc-3!). When she gets big enough then you go to two crafts. Either k-2 or oc-2 and k-1 or oc-1.

On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
