Our Little B turned nine this year! She’s not so little anymore. One more year and she hits the double digits!
We asked her what she wanted for her birthday, ready with pen and paper in hand to write down a list of toys or games but were pleasantly surprised by her unusual request.
She asked for a kayak.
She wanted a kayak so she could spend the upcoming summer sailing around the ocean we have within a 15 minute walk from where we live. It’s practically in our very own backyard.
My husband was over the moon excited about her desire to get a kayak. It was like having one of his dreams come true.
So Little B got her kayak, of course.
Her kayak came with a paddle and a new life jacket. Gotta have all the right gear before you can be a serious kayak’er, you know! Little B’s best friend Kate has a kayak too … surprise, surprise … and the both of them were like two peas in a pod the very first opportunity they got to kayak together. The grins on those faces are proof of their genuine happiness.
So now you know what we’ll be doing this summer. Little H’s 7th birthday is just around the corner and I bet you can guess what she’s asking for for her birthday?!
