Family Fun Day

I just wanted to say thanks for letting me have the day off yesterday. I could have posted last night when I got home but I decided that I was just going to take the entire day off. No work of any kind.

Yesterday was the day (not last Thursday) that my family got to head out to Point Mallard or "Point Allergy" as the little one called it. And it was a blast. Now I'm in my 20's and this is the first time I have ever been to Point Mallard. Apparently I missed out on something when I was younger, but everyone I know went when they were kids. But I know now it can be just as much fun as an adult as it is when you are a kid. Kinda like Disney Land, I enjoyed it way more as an adult than when I was a kid.

I spent a lot of time on the diving boards. I went off the low one about a gajillion times, I went off the high one but I didn't love it very much...lets just be honest, I was too scared to try any tricks off the high one. And I made one daring leap off the platform. Every little scaredy bone in my body wanted to climb back down that ladder but I didn't, I was a big girl and jumped off the platform.

We also played on the slides a little bit, one of them I went down and completely came out of my float, didn't hurt and soooooo fun. The other slide I participated in was the one that looks like a big toilet bowl. I really didn't like this one. You slid for a short time and then rolled around a toilet bowl that scratched your back and then "flushed." I busted when I fell out of the toilet. Basically I waited in line too long to be flushed down the toilet.

I did get a little sunburnt at the park, its not the really red kind that looks horrible but the kind that will tan in a few days but until then it feels like sandpaper. Its bad enough that I have on a strapless bra today and would have on a tube top if I owned one or thought that would ever be appropriate to wear. Just less straps to bother me on my tender skin.

We got home early yesterday evening. I had not planned on working out at all yesterday but when I got home I had all my house stuff done (laundry, cooking, I would say cleaning but I didn't do any of that) by 7:30 so I thought it would be a waist not to do just a few miles. I ran for about 30 minutes last night and did some plyometric work in my living room before finally calling it a night. I am glad I did a little something last night, I always am. Especially since I wont be able to work out at all today.

I hope you all get the chance to take a mini one day vacation. Its incredibly rejuvenating and makes your heart happy.
