My parents' birthdays are one week apart (today and last Thursday). They were on a kayak trip last week with my aunt and uncle - and the wind and waves were so rough that my Mom actually broke her kayak paddle! They didn't have any spares, so Dad and my uncle Macgyvered it "by shoving bits of wood down the shaft and then [using] duct tape to hold it together - all while sitting in the middle of a windy lake" (all this in a text from Mom after they got home).
I thought it might be nice to remind them of their resourcefulness in this birthday card I made for them. Aren't I a nice daughter?
