What is SUPing? I didn't know either, not until Monday. John and I went Stand Up Paddle boarding for our MLK holiday. Surprisingly, daycare was open. We lost out on a lot of money during the month of December with Connor home for 2 weeks, Addie out sick and then our Christmas vacation. So the kids were going to school if it was open. We were a little sceptical at first. The high on Monday was only 68 and it was quite windy. But the guy we rented the boards from told us to head out to Fort De Soto where we could paddle through the mangroves without much wind. It was perfect and not a cloud in the sky. The learning curve was short and it didn't take long to get our sea legs. So we were off! We paddled around for about an hour and a half. Talk about a great workout, and you can't beat the scenery. Most of our pictures were taken by John with my cell phone, which is why he isn't in many of them. I'm due for a new phone so we risked it and brought it out with us. We didn't know if we would fall off so didn't want to take our camera. Glad we didn't because the water was freezing! On our way home we stopped at the beach for a drink and appetizer. It was such a fun day!
