Before we filled our house with people, my Mastermind Group (or at least most of them!) got together for paddleboarding. It was such a great workout and absolutely a soul-enhancing time. My smart business owner girlfriends inspire me.
Paddleboarding is all about the core – and I am SORE today! My legs hurt. My abs are wondering what hit them and my shoulders are protesting.
We went to the park yesterday and Jamisen absolutely hated his sun bonnet (or is it a manly cap? Isn’t it all semantics?). He did LOVE the slide. He kept climbing up the slide (it’s a small, slightly tilted piece of molded fiberglass) to his Daddy. Chris would turn him around and send him the 2 feet back to me. There was a lot of smiles, giggling and grunting. Jamisen loved it! And he took the LONGEST afternoon nap. All the climbing, walking (with Mommy’s help!) and crawling tuckered our little boy out.
Proving the fun doesn’t stop, we brought Mr. Jamisen to an afternoon party where I made salmon (fresh) en papillote and adult macaroni and cheese (cambozola cheese plus farmhouse cheddar). It makes it entirely Martha in little individual serving dishes.
We’re planning on walking the baby into Fairhaven today for Ski to Sea (this insane multi-leg race that starts out skiing and ends with kayaking in the Bay. He is going to be in his element with all the people (our baby is a people person!). Hopefully he’ll sit still enough for a few photos.
Happy Weekend – I hope you’re having a joyful weekend with your family and friends.
wow what great fun and your Jamisen is so cute..love the hat!
Would you share your yummy adult mac n cheese recipe?
We notice that you passed it fantastically!
Sounds like a fun weekend! Jamisen is so adorable. 🙂
Thank you for posting the link to that article. It is very important the we remember that Memorial Day is not about the cookouts and a 3-day weekend.
It is SO important that we remember that our three day weekend is designed to be a day of remembrance and gratitude. The article absolutely makes that clear. I sobbed when I read it the first time and I tried to explain the photo to my husband and ended up tearing up again (!!). That’s one powerful photo and narrative.
That paddle boarding looks super fun! And vaguely exhausting… Have a great weekend 🙂
