Today we headed out to one of the local beaches with friends and family and enjoyed a wonderful day in the sunshine!
We enjoyed kayaking, rock climbing (awesome - thanks Jim!), and just relaxing. Once I sang "Row Your Boat" to Max in the kayak, he totally was up for it...so cute! We only kept him out for five minutes but he did really great. He was completely comfortable and smiled quite a bit!
And when we returned home, we took on another adventure..."pool therapy" at our neighbor's house. (Thanks Lori!) Max absolutely despites pools and baths anywhere outside our home, but I am determined to show him how incredible and fun water can be.
Did it go well? Absolutely not. But that's ok. We'll keep trying a minute here, a minute there. He didn't scream the entire time and that's progress perhaps. And the scratches on my back from Max's death grip around my neck...they'll heal. :)
What a fantastic day!
