My Daughter's Birthday! What a special day! We try to do something special every year when we get a chance and THIS year (call us crazy...BUT) we decided to drive nearly 4 hours to go on a 2 hour sunset cruise on Cape Fear River! It was HOT as blazes out, but we braved the heat...got in the car and drove to the shore! We just barely got there in time to find the right dock, get our tickets and get on the boat (a catamarran). Mind you....I am VERY afraid of water, but for her I will about try anything! We have been through so much heartache and had to learn to stand on our own...ALONE, so this was a wonderful journey! Anyway...it was neat....still pretty hot but we had a good time! They had a guy playing guitar and singing on the cruise, he sang "Happy Birthday" to her, along with the other passengers....her 'cake' was a couple of Twix bars that melted in a matter of minutes it was so hot! We got off the boat at 9:00pm...walked down the boardwalk to an outside cafe and ate......hadn't had anything since breakfast!!! Then back to the car, and headed home...got back nearly 2:00am!! WHEW! What a day! Below is a picture of the card I made her....she LOVED it...in fact it was the inspiration for the day!! I thank God for her, for the experience of the day and our safety in traveling!!
