kayaking adventure

well i dont have any pictures for this post but let me tell you i really wish i did! this past weekend one of our favorite comedians jim gaffigan came to town and performed at humphreys by the bay. we really wanted to see him and we have heard that you can actually go around the back on a boat or kayak and sit there on the water right to the side of the stage. so we borrowed a couple of kayaks (thanks brad and allie!!) and decided to give it a try. rick had wanted to take them out and practice beforehand but we never got a chance. so right before we were about to leave (now comes the part where i wish i had pics to post!!) rick decides to try it out in the pool really quickly. so hes paddling around is headed into the side of the pool, overcorrects, and flips the thing over! it was so funny! i was trying my hardest not to laugh too much because i knew he would retaliate by either throwing me in or splashing me. but i must say it was pretty funny watching him come out of the pool fully dressed dripping from head to toe! but after watching him do this i must admit it did make me a little hesitant to be paddling around on the ocean. we almost didnt do it because i almost wussed out but i decided to be brave and just take it slow. it actually ended up being really fun (ok i freaked out a bit at the thought of how deep it was and started to imagine fins coming at me through the water but i talked myself through it!). after it was over we paddled back and i went to grab my shoes i had left on the shore right next to ricks and 1, yes only 1, of my flipflops was gone. who takes only 1 flip flop?!? come on now! so i had to go to dennys afterwards to grab some dinner with just 1 shoe! can we say ghetto?? so overall we had a really fun date night doing something different, something active, and jim gaffigan was his usual hilarious self. so we had a blast and now rick is wanting to buy some kayaks REALLY BAD! hahaha!

That sounds so fun. I wish you had a video of Rick flipping over in the pool. Funny. Eric did the same thing when he went kayaking with Ben in Washington.

fun date! That's pretty funny stuff, I wish you could post your mental picture. You're a smart girl for not laughing!

That is so funny! I wish you had video of that. Rick cracks us up! Pat thinks he's just hilarious.. And I totally agree, 1 flip flop? It's a funny idea though to do to someone else.
