I can't even tell you how much fun we had yesterday!!!
We got together with some of our friends and went canoeing and kayaking down Elkhorn Creek, just a ways down the road from our place, for several hours. Such breathtaking scenery - it was amazing. I was flying high most of the day.
I ended up with a just a few pictures of the day - only brought my crappy little phone to take pics with because I was afraid my 'real' camera would end up in the water. For some reason, my little phone didn't save half the pics I took, so here's what I managed to save.
I freaking told you it was breathtaking!!! And this doesn't even show all the limestone cliffs!
Todd's view for the majority of the day - lucky man
I can't believe how handsome my husband is - he makes my little heart go pitter patter
Classic Keith Rowland Extraordinaire
Heath, Laken & Tasha on shore, with Matthew splashing around in the water during one of our libation breaks
This is what you get when you ask Mister Man to take a picture.
He's totally awesome that way. :D
It was the perfect day to go too - cloudy at times, with lots of breeze to cool you down. The kids managed to catch a baby turtle (saw lots of them sunning on the trees in the water) and someone caught a baby snake (not sure who that brave pup was). We had libations (although almost not enough) and someone produced a Mason jar filled with whiskey at some point - that went down too. We managed to have a good old time and probably scared away half the wild life with our whooping and hollering. The creek was a tad bit low in some places, so we had some fun getting stuck on the rocks...and my husband enjoyed making me squeal like a little girl by furiously rocking the canoe back and forth and almost pitching me into the water (telling me the whole time that 'we're just practicing').
I can't wait to go again. Mister Man has already been checking out used canoes and kayaks online.
So thank you VERY much Keith, Nancy and Heath! We had a great time and are going to make you take us again!
'til next time... ♥
