RANSOMSOUL Wanted to share a classic card I received this morning from Mika (her words):

Oh are soooo Olddd. You are such a loving, funny and HOT daddy (a nod to me loving hot sauce + any joke that pushes the limits the family always yells out...TOO FAR TOO FAR. This was the first time of many that it was screamed out during the reading of this card). You help me in the tough times, and pick me up when I am down. You help me keep my balls to the wall and stay on track (TOO FAR TOO FAR.... joke source - - funny explanation of the expression told by a German). You have made our childhood such a memorable one. I love you so much that it is bigger than the universe. Remember when you told us your stories on dookie ball (this is a true story of a childhood game consisting of a soccer ball smashed in my Great Danes dookie, then you chased your friends around trying to smash them with the ball...good times..good times Thank you for watching Once Upon A Time With Me. Thank you for all of the music you get for me. Also, thank you soooooo much for Captain Houdini. You are the best father in the world. I love you sooooo much sooooo much so so much. You are very old (nothing like closing on a high) Love You Mika

(I left two jokes off because they were TOO FAR TOO FAR for RANSOMSOUL)

RANSOMSOUL Finding Calm In The Stormy Weather.

RANSOMSOUL Had a serious battle this morning. *Kiana & I took on Claudia, Mika & Kai for king of the stairs. It was a relay challenge that all but destroyed our legs. Loser had to do the dishes for the next month. Kiana & I will be open for evening activities since we have a lot of free time on our hands ;) After the challenge, we all spent some time enjoying the view.

*It should be noted that Matisse did participate as our third partner but his tiny legs did more jumping to cheer us on than actual running of the stairs.

The private beach feel was in full effect this morning. It seemed as if the ocean only had approval for one entry at a time. I chose to max out the freedom with running a couple of miles and maxed out the adventure with several trips on the stairs.
