Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

We had a fun and relaxing weekend.

Yesterday we took Jakey canoeing. We had a blast! Canoeing is something Scot and I always enjoyed doing... then we had to take a break from it for a few years, but now Jake is old enough to come with us. And the kid loves it!
He was already so excited about the fact that he could ride a school bus to the drop-off area. He wore is life jacket very proud and enjoyed "helping" us paddle. We even saw a snake, geese, ducks, fish, tadpoles, and much more. He got to throw rocks with Daddy, climb trees all by himself, and even swam in the river ALONE (with a life jacket of course). I tell you this kid loves the water! I am glad we signed him up for swim lessons again.

After a long afternoon of canoeing we came back, took a nap and met some friends at Coney Island for some rides. It was a perfect way to end a perfect day.

Today it was raining off and on, so I decided to take Jakey to the $ movies and watch Horton hears a Who. It was fun, but I am glad just to be home now and to be able to take it easy!

Hope you had a great weekend too!
