I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! On Tuesday night we took a walk down to one of the local boat launches and watched the fireworks. Then on Wednesday my mother-in-law took the boys for a couple hours so my husband and I could take the boat out and go fishing! I really had a great time and I wore a bikini for the first time in forever. It was only me and my husband so I didn’t feel self conscious and it felt so great to feel the sun and warm breeze on my skin.
When it came time to head back to shore I pulled up the anchor all by myself! My husband didn’t think I was going to be able to do it and kept calling to me to see if I needed help. It was tough, it was about 30+ feet down in the water and I had to keep pulling and then holding the rope in one hand while threading it back into the holder and then I tied it off.
We met up with my husband’s family and our boys after and went to a picnic where we played volleyball! It was such a fun and exhausting day but I was so happy that I was actually able to do all those things without feeling defeated.
Oh, and I caught a fish too!
