#13 Go Para-sailing

Para-sailing was so amazing!  I shared this experience with Nathanial.  We both enjoyed ourselves immensely.  It's unbelievable how quiet it is 1000 feet above the Atlantic.  The view was breathtaking.  I scored some major cool mom points for this!

#28 Donate in a blood drive

Today I donated blood at work. It kind of hurt and made me a bit nauseous but it was a good experience all around. I have A positive blood and I'm a super slow bleeder. This time though, I was able to fill the bag completely in the allotted time.

It also gave me the opportunity to explain to Nathanial what donating blood is about and why it should be done.  One donation can save up to 3 people's lives.  One such donation in 2003, saved Nathanial's life.  In 2003, we learned that Andy has the rarest blood type of AB Rh negative.  While they couldn't use his blood for Nathanial's transfusion, I'm positive that it went to good use to help save someone's life.
