I would say one of my favorite things is the world is laughing really hard. I mean really hard... that sore ab, can't breath, eye watering laugh. And although I laugh frequently I can honestly say I haven't laughed as hard as I did yesterday in a long time. I'm laughing right now just thinking about it. Chase and I try to walk Maddie as much as we can. So yesterday we started off on our walk. There is a creek that we pass on our walk, and since it was a beautiful day we let Maddie get a drink. And then this conversation starts:
Chase: Jump across the creek.
Me: No. Can you even jump across the creek?
Chase: Yea (walks down to the edge to scope things out)
Me: Are you really going to do it?
Chase: I don't know... do you think I should?
Me: Big boy that's up to you.
At this point I'm pretty sure he's going to jump it. And I honestly had every confidence that he would make it. Chase is actually one of most athletic people I know (and as a college athlete I've hung out with my fair share).
Chase does one more walk through. Reties his shoes. Runs toward the water... JUMPS... and
DOES NOT MAKE IT. He was very close maybe 6 inches short. He landed in that part of the creek where it is all mud and zero rocks. It honestly was one of the funniest moments of my life. I really wish you could have seen the lady that was passing on the trail as all this happened. And did I mention it wasn't like Chase got wet... he got muddy. Oh I'll just show you (and note this is after we walked all the way back and he had a chance to dry some).
A closer look...
Ah... I love it. What I love even more is that Chase wasn't even that upset, he was really just glad he was able to make me laugh. So made my day.
I did want to show you a card made with some of the May Arts ribbon I have over in the store. I'm so in love with this ribbon!
Don't you love that texture?
