Out There

Happy Birthday Mom!

Posted in Uncategorized by Pete on May 1, 2008

Today is May 1, and my mom’s birthday. We sent her an e-card, and later Claire and Tammy and I will give her a call to let her know how special she is to us. We love you mom!

Yesterday was Claire’s 2nd birthday! She managed to wait ALL day without opening presents, and then had a blast opening boxes and boxes of stuff, mostly from her super generous grandparents (thanks you guys!). There was also a veggie tales movie (which we watched right away) from the Wolcotts, and several cards from Cousins and others. Her friend Karla even gave her some cool rubber boots! All in all a great day for her, I think. : – ) She even fielded Happy Birthday wishes on the VHF, answering “Thank You” in her soft voice over the airwaves. We opened so many presents that Tam and I never gave her OUR gift, a “Dora the Explorer” toddler bed, with matching furniture and toy-organizer shelves. That will be a weekend project for dad to put together, AFTER I take my very very very last final due Saturday morning at 9 am.

Lastly, with this being May 1, I just have to point out that in 2004, our first May in KUK, we were KAYAKING on this day. There was a lot of ice in the river and the lakes were almost entirely covered, but there was plenty of room to paddle. This was the day that Tammy famously fell in too, but I won’t go into that here. Anyway, May 1, 2008 is not so paddle-friendly. At 6 this morning it was 19 degrees out with 25 mph winds for a wind chill of -12. Boooo!!! Come spring, come!!! We’ll be driving, not boating, on the river for a while longer I guess.
