Today we had a mission and it couldn't get underway fast enough! Living in North Carolina has changed our life in so many ways but we have learned not to take things for granted. Since we have left Florida we have missed the ability to go to a pool or beach anytime we choose. Granted, there have not been very many pool days in NC so far, but I know they are near.
Thankful for a 3 day weekend where we could steal away for a mini vacay with the family, we made sure the pool and/or beach was going to be one of the top things we chose to do. Jake knew something exciting was going to happen because he could feel it in the air. I know the minute we got out of the car in the parking lot he could sense the excitment, hear the laughter and splashing, and I know he could smell the sweet coconut air from all of the sunscreened bodies playing in the water. Really, he is cool like that!
Jake took to the water like he was meant for it. He was all relaxed and mellow with his daddy but after I got to him, he was cheesing it up and loving every minute. He smiled, laughed and cooed for over an hour!
After all of us had fun squeezing the life out of the pool experience, we dried off and warmed up. Jake was at peace.
And promptly fell asleep.
Such a good day. Hoping for a replay tomorrow.
