Brayden's 1st Lake Outing

 
Today we went to Blue Springs lake for Brayden's first lake excursion! I think he had fun, although he was quite unimpressed with his life jacket. In the state of Missouri children under the age of seven are required to wear a life jacket whenever they are on a boat. That unfortunately means the life jacket is non negotiable. After we got home today we ordered a different jacket online hoping maybe it will be less restrictive for Brayden.
 
Brayden seems to be happiest while the boat is moving, and he really enjoyed swimming. I was surprised he like swimming because the water was FREEZING, but he was unphased by the coldness.  Here are some highlights from the day......
 
    
 
 
 
 
 
Overall, we had a great day! It would have been nice if the sun would have come out more, but the clouds were probably a blessing for Brayden. Tomorrow I will work for the holiday and Bret will stay with Brayden. Then on Tuesday we will head back to the clinic, and I desperately hope that Braydens counts will be better so he will be able to take his chemo. Doesn't it seem weird that I am hoping someone will inject Brayden with toxic drugs?? What a different world we are living in now.....
