Instead of Working Out

>> Monday, June 21, 2010

Not much has changed with my foot. It’s SLOWLY feeling a little better, but not nearly as quickly as I’d hoped. So this past weekend, instead of working out, I went camping and canoeing down the Kickapoo River in WI with all of Pharmie’s family.

Before going canoeing, I iced my sore foot in an ice-cold creek. Can you tell which foot spent 20 minutes in the cold, cold water?

Before hitting the river, Pharmie helped her brother Matt make some sweet Daisy Duke’s:

On Saturday morning, we hit the river. The best part of canoeing is stopping along the river at little “play spots.” Pharmie’s cousins and I love to jump in:

Jumping with Ben...

...flying with Ben...

...splashing with Ben. How is HIS splash bigger?!?

Matt showed off his pale legs:

This next photo is maybe the best one from the weekend. Pharmie’s godchild had a broken leg, so she had a cast wrapped in plastic. Here I am with her on my shoulders, along with 2 of Pharmie’s siblings. Pharmie’s not even in this photo, but I STILL want this to be our Christmas Card Photo this winter:

Super Duper.

Then Ben and I found another place to jump:


How did Ben get up there so fast?...

Thinking about it...

Then, yesterday morning (Father’s Day), I manned the griddle on the camp stove and made pancakes for the whole gang. Here was my father-in-law’s order:

One of each: blueberry, plain, and chocolate chunk

I’m hoping to rest more this week, and then see how the foot pain is doing by this weekend. I haven’t done ANYTHING since the Oly Tri 9 days ago, and I’m getting a little antsy. OK, time to go stretch a little. Happy Monday!

The look on your cousin's face while you and Ben are jumping in the river is PRICELESS.
