I'm a wife, mom, and doctor. I'm occasionally inappropriate, frequently odd, but not weird yet....I don't think. Bugs Bunny said it best: "It is to laugh."

Canoeing on Your Birthday
We went over to Adventures Unlimited in Milton, FL for a 7-mile canoe trip on Lucas's birthday. Last time we did this, Jake was a puppy.
Two miles in, we stopped to eat lunch. Then the thunder started. We packed up pretty quick but couldn't avoid the thunderstorm that blew up right over us. Let's just say that we avoided hypothermia by huddling under an overturned canoe Dean set up for us, and we finally just took off paddling when the radar showed no let-up in sight.
Five miles of river and several hours later, we made it home in time to celebrate his birthday with the grandparents - hooray!
This will probably be his most memorable birthday ever.
Maybe not the best one....unless you call not getting hit by lightning a good thing, in which case it was most definitely the best day ever!
