Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
We celebrated my grandfather, Bockum's 90th birthday with my extended family. It was more family than we have had together in years. We had a big BBQ in the backyard with everyone. New Fish shares a birthday with Bockum- they are birth day twins with an 85 year gap.
There was a little bit of swimming. Two Fish was kind enough to get in the pool with the kids while I finished putting up decorations.
We ate dinner and chatted and relived old memories.
My cousin K has her birthday the day before New Fish.
The birthday twins did a little tap dancing since Bockum is a tap dancer and New Fish just started taking lessons. I hope I can tap dance when I am ninety. If I could pick and choose what my children remember about their childhood, these are the kinds of things I want them to remember.
