Paddling in Olaf

We’re all familiar with Frozen’s silly snowman, Olaf, by now, and his great dreams of relaxing in the summer sun…..

a summer breeze
Blow away a winter storm
And find out what happens to solid water
When it gets warm                            orange-music-note-hi

Unfortunately, for him, it is not a reality, but for Nick and his Awesome team…. well…

 

 

last week, they got to go to Horsetooth Reservoir   in order to kayak with Adaptive Recreation Opportunities.

At the reservoir, Nick got to celebrate all things summer; relaxation, sunshine, and friends!

Nick spent time with C.A.S.T. for Kids event planner, Bill, one of his favorite fishing buddies!

Here he is with 2 of his favorite longtime friends, who love water sports just as much as he does!: Dolan and Hannah Williams-Doss.

 

 

Nick loved having another adventure on the reservoir with his newest friend, Taben Winter. They explored the whole cove, while successfully avoiding all of the dangers of the water (beavers, man-eating catfish, and killer snails!)  Nick says “Taben is great at paddling!”

It is important to remember to enjoy the seasons, and take advantage of what your surroundings have to offer.   This kind of thinking helps Nick and his team stay positive and work hard (when they are not playing!)

Below is Nick’s bucket list for the summer.

  1. Go to 6 flags amusement park. Make my brother scream!!

  2. Play in the yard

  3. Swim at the beach

  4. Attend summer concerts

  5. Remain excited, happy, and cheerful

Don’t spend the summer melting away…take a few minutes to decide:
