Let’s Go Rafting!

Ever since we arrived here, the kids have been asking to go rafting. In the beginning, it was always too cold. Once temperatures began to increase, so did the number of rafting customers. Eventually, though, we knew there would be a chance for Rob to take us rafting. That opportunity came this week, and the kids sure were excited! I was, too, of course. It had been about 17 years or so since I had been white-water rafting, and I was very anxious to go again. Especially since Rob was going to be our guide!

The river was running a little high from all of the rain, but everybody managed to stay in the raft. I did check behind me quite often to make sure the twins were still there, especially after the bigger rapids. We were soaked by the time we were done, but everyone had such a wonderful time! I took a waterproof camera with us, but I have not been able to get the film developed yet, so I may have to share some of those with you after I get them. Hopefully some of them turned out. For now, though, we have the pictures taken by the company’s photographer. He hangs out on the bank through one set of rapids and shoots a series of photos. You can’t see the twins in most of them because they are behind my big head, but know that they were there and were laughing hysterically! The kids even got to swim through a calm part of the river, which they thought was pretty cool.
