A Day With Mom

I’m going to be gone for a while in July so I decided it would be a good weekend to spend a day with mom. She decided to join an alumni group from her university and that gives her access to a nice lakeside recreation center on Lake Whatcom. It was this recreation center we decided to visit because they have kayaks for a very cheap price.

So we took the kayak out after I figured out how to get my long legs inside without tipping it over. We decided to get a two person kayak and it was pretty nice. One of us could take a break while the other kept going. We went quite a ways and it was a really nice day.

After the water, we went back to mom’s and had some nice fish. I don’t eat fish very often but when I do it is usually good. The fish lacked a lot of flavor but the topping was very nice. Also had a fresh salad from her garden! We had time to play a called bolo toss which was actually quite fun. As my mom says, it would be a great family game ’cause everyone can play! Simple but competitive.

I then showed mom the DVD from Green Eyes In Africa, a non-profit that runs an orphanage in Africa. The documentary is about how they got started and I plan to review it soon on this site. I also gave her my copy of Office Professional 2007. I hope she can get used to the new menu system. I’d had it for some months now but couldn’t think of someone who really needed it. I left soon after that and got home in time for my weekly chat on Skype!
