Until last year, that is. I did try last year. I failed miserably. It was actually embarrassing. It was at Sea World/Aquatica here in San Antonio. I made a fool of myself trying to hurl my physique into the shiny slippery floating thing. I gave up. I saw plenty of people, obese and all, accomplishing this task. Why couldn't I? No clue. I just said 'forget it', and moved on.
Yesterday; however, I did it. Woo Hoo. You know what else? It wasn't even hard. I did it quickly and without trouble. While I have no photo to prove it, as my camera was locked away in a locker, it will be etched in my memory well into old age. My 5 year old son is now big enough to have his own tube, and I had a tube, and we just floated on that Loggerhead Lane river over and over. We would drift under water falls, and get splashed, and bounced, and it was amazing. The sheer look of joy on my son's face was priceless. I imagine my face was pretty giddy as well.
Despite some fatigued muscles and pink skin, it was a spectacular day. This mama slept well. Now here is a photo that really is of me, and my lovely companions.
