ever leave a place and think to yourself (or say out loud),
"*sigh* can we please go back there soon?"
this was black butte, oregon, an amazing resort illya and i went to with my mom and step father (or, as i like to call him "step daddy wayne") for 4 amazing days. we did many activities, including introducing my mom and illya to the very zen activity that is canoeing.
now, i haven't done this IN YEARS! but, it all came back to me the minute my paddle hit the water. once i gave him a few tips, illya did very well...
my mom, not so much...you could hear her screaming from the other side of the lake,
"wayne!! we're about to hit the shore! what do i do?!"
why is it that, in these situations, my mothers panic makes my laugh?
as we got out of the boat, illya said,
"i'm ready to go canoeing again!"
