Yesterday was fantastic! I woke up feeling great- and I felt great all day long until right after dinner (of which I ate way too much) and then I started feeling nauseous again. But I felt totally fine for all my birthday activities! God totally provided for me and answered my prayers. A whole day of relief! On my birthday! It was a TOTAL blessing.
Here’s a quick photo recap of the day:
This is all of us in the boat (minus Jared- he was off parking the boat trailer). It was so beauitful and the air was so crisp. I miss crisp air. There’s not much of it in Oklahoma due to all the humidity.
Jared, Kristy, Ezra, and I took the boat back out after awhile and went ‘Wake Surfing’ which is similar to wakeboarding except you aren’t strapped to the board. And the theory is that once you get into the right place in the wake you can LET GO OF THE TOW ROPE and just continue to surf behind the continuous wave of the boat’s wake. I never got to the place where I could let go of the rope, but it was a total blast and the water felt SO SO good. Totally refreshing.
After we got home, we showered and napped and then everyone came over for the yummiest BBQ dinner on record. I opened some presents and got lots of great maternity stuff (that Ezra picked out himself), a gift card to Old Navy (for more maternity goodness), a vintage copy of ‘Grapes Of Wrath’ by Steinbeck, and a collection of short stories by Roald Dahl. Great gifts!!!
After dinner I started to feel yucky again, so I went to bed early and slept like a rock. (Assuming rocks sleep.)
It was an amazing and perfect birthday. (Well, if Chris could have been here it would have been totally perfect. I missssss himmm!!)
Now… uh… On with the 26-ed-ness!
