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.
