What I Did Do Last Week

So, I really did get in my car, drink a few Dr. Peppers, stop at the store to pick a few things up, and drive to Idaho. I even wore a bra on the trip- but then I changed into my swimsuit and I was wet for the rest of the week.

Our oldest was at camp for the week, the 2 youngest were at Papa and Grandma's house, and the middle children, Sebastian and I, and our friend met up with some other river nuts in Idaho and had ourselves a grand week long adventure drifting down the Salmon and Snake rivers.

We had a great time. It was sunny and warm to hot the entire time. In the evenings, warm breezes blow down the canyon. By 9 pm, you might think about pulling off your swimsuit and putting on pants, a tank top, and maybe a sweatshirt.

Immediately after we pulled off the river, we began talking about what we should tweak for when we do it again next year- and making sure that 4 of our 5 kids are available the week we do it.

You are the only friend I have that would be willing to post her un-pedicured Barney Rubble feet on her blog. Love you like a sister....

Gina said...

Yes, but you understand that it would be way more traumatic for me to get a pedi than showing my un-pedi'ed feet. I have issues. You know that. It would require being touched....

This sounds WAY more fun than joining the Amish. :) Wow! What a trip! So you just hauled all your camp gear with you down the river and camped along the way? Man, just so cool! And nothing makes you appreciate God more than some beautiful nature!
