At least that was my pre-trip. Zeke's, on the other hand, involves exactly what you would expect: Surfing, old buddies, fishing, and kayaking all in as close to the middle nowhere as he can get.
My uncle Rick turned 60 on Saturday and his wife threw a big party for him up at the Marshall Place. If the gifts he got are at all typical I never want to turn 60 in my life. He received a Goldilocks wig, a cane with a water bottle and "get out of my way I'm old" horn, and a plethora of "old people" products like stool softener, centrum silver, etc.
I never realized how unsafe that thing was until I saw those two little boys being carried across. It didn't help that earlier in the day I had watched two teenagers dropping boulders off the bridge for the splash. The babys enjoyed the party almost as much as everyone that got to hold them.
Great Grandma Todd was very surprised to see how BIG the twins had gotten. She hadn't seen them in over two months. They are four months old and she saw them over half of their lifetime ago. Time and age for babys is so strange. They double their age after living for two days. Two months for me is 1/143 of my current age and it is 1/2 of their current age. No wonder time goes by faster as we get older, it is always becoming a smaller fraction of our age or our time on this earth.
