Enough about education. Let's talk about something we can all get behind: Recreation.
Here's my early birthday present: an inflatable stand up paddleboard. It was advertised as "portable" and "fits in a backpack." Well, the backpack is the size of a small elephant and by the time I heave this thing to the shoreline, my legs will be so cramped I will only be able to sit down paddleboard.
However, it will be worth the lactic acid build up just watching The Good Doctor attempt to stand up and paddle across the gleaming water. So far he's 0 for 2 in successful attempts. The video documentation is priceless.
Hoping it will inflate when we head to Tahoe. Otherwise that's one heavy disappointment.
