Thankful Thursday: Mexico & Kayaking

It's thankful Thursday time! We all have so much to be thankful for and we love to take this opportunity just to write down each and everything that comes to mind. Please take this time to share with us what you're thankful for as well. If you have a blog expressing your thankfulness, please share the link! Without further ado, here's what we're thankful for:

Mandi's List:

I’m thankful for family time in Mexico. Every summer we do a long weekend with Ronnie’s whole extended family in Rocky Point, Mexico. This year was my favorite yet. Mckenna is a stellar traveler these days, so that helped immensely, and she was just a doll all trip. She had such a blast with all the “cousins” (I think they’re all second cousins technically). It was great spending time with family and watching Mckenna enjoy the trip.

I’m thankful for healthy eating. After a vacation, I realize how much I love eating well. Sure I LOVE junk…probably more than most. I have a sweet tooth that never ends and I can eat more fried food than a grown man. But after eating junk for a long weekend straight, I realize how much I love putting good food into my body. It feels good to be home and eating normally again.

I’m thankful for sleep. I’ve been falling asleep on the couch the last few nights really early (maybe catching up from vacation fun?) and it has been amazing. There’s nothing better than a good night’s sleep!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for a successful trip to Rocky Point. My family has been going down to Mexico for a family reunion of sorts for the past 35+ years. This year, there was 33 of us and I think it's safe to say that we all had a good time. We run like a well oiled machine down there and not an hour goes by that you feel hungry or bored ;)

I'm thankful for summer softball league. We just had our first two games tonight (1-1) and it was nice to get back onto the field and give it all that I got. I am probably the least talented guy on the team, so I always focus on attitude, effort and hustle because that's about the only three things I can control out there!

I'm thankful for kayak rides. Quite possibly my favorite part of the Mexico trip this year was throwing a life jacket on Mckenna and jumping into the kayak. We paddled far out into the ocean with Mckenna leaning back on me the whole time and even giving me a hand with paddling. It was a very awesome way to spend some one-on-one time with her.

What are you thankful for today?
