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.
Me and Ezra. Ezra thought the boat was awesome. And so did I.
We found a small cove and anchored the boat just offshore. This beach was beautiful and perfect for a day of lounging. It was smoky from all the CA fires, but not as bad as it has been.
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.
Ezra was such a good boy all day. I loved watching him climb and explore. I borrowed my mommy's swimsuit because mine was suddenly MUCH too tight around the midsection. Ahem.
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!
