So along with all the relatives - grandmas and grandpas and uncles and aunts and cousins, we came along to play in the water, eat good food and watch Candle Wish Cake Time. A good day (well, there was that heart stopping moment when my son jumped off a once upon a time bridge edge into the river...why can a 32 year old man make a mother's heart stop as if he were 6?), a very good time. And those salmon roll ups were amazing, Audrey!!! Yes, that would be fresh caught, wild salmon...
Nesta checking out the scene before her boy jumps
There he goes!
Ok, I can breathe again
I was thinking about Gus, how I didn't know him as a child,
but I could imagine him, with his love of the water, doing these things
Vrai's first jump
Surfboards and snorkels on the river
A little impromptu music - there is a lot of homegrown music out here
Grandma Janet, starting 'em young
Another jumping boy
Sammy making his wish...lucky guy, two cakes! two wishes!
End of the day...'
It's the little things that make the big things. Don't forget it!
Have a tenderfoot Thursday. Do something teachable.
