Skateboarding

Skateboards
Missing: skateboard for mom (J has 2).

We bought the kids skateboards. We want them to be cool.

Ha.

We want them to have lots things to play with outside.

Anyway. There's a skate park in a nearby neighbourhood that we checked out one weekend morning. We brought the skateboards, the scooters and snacks.

What we should have maybe brought was a bubble for me.

Hanging on to the top rail.
That's right - I took a bad fall and landed on my wrist. A week and a half later when I went to the doctor, he confirmed that it was sprained and the internal swelling was causing carpal tunnel symptoms. Four weeks later I'm able to do most things, but it still gets sore if I do too much.

Will we go back to the skate park? Definitely. I'll invest in some wrist guards before then.
