Day 28 – Kayaking and Birthday Fun!
Today is my little boy’s 18th birthday. It’s hard to believe my little boy is a adultish type person (he can now buy spray paint and lottery tickets legally – WOW). I try to deny it by standing on my tippy toes next to him, but even wearing my highest heals and standing on my toes, he’s still taller than me. As much as everyone told me about how fast the time goes when you have children, I never believed it of course. I was much to busy sweeping cheerios off the floor and folding tiny shirts to believe that this would go by fast. Some days seemed to last forever especially when there was no nap. His years of popsicle-eating, pacifier -switching, and tail-wearing might be over, but we’re looking forward to what comes next for Jake.
I know I haven’t blogged for 2 days, but I decided that if I could blog for 25 days, I could do some serious exercise for the next 25 days so I committed to being an exercise machine. Today, I biked to the end of the village (about 5 miles) and later to the post office (2 miles) and then kayaked with my nephew, Gray. My arms are still in recovery from carrying Anabelle at the zoo and the kayaking almost did me in, but I did it. The bonus was we saw two dolphins up and down the creek that were with us the whole time! I even captured a picture of his dorsal fin and not the wake rings I usually photograph after the dolphin disappears under the water.
