Getting Out

Well, sorry I was absent for a couple of days, but I went out kayaking with the fam! We had a great weekend; met my oldest daughter, her husband and two of their friends to have a little fun on the river. The temp. was in the 90's, so gotta get out on the water and cool off!

My daughter and her husband have a canoe and their friends were on inner tubes. When we got hot, we'd jump in and ride along the current. We used to go floating a lot when the kids were young, it's free and fun (as long as you have the gear, or know someone who will share!).
I love the sound of the birds and watching the deer come down for a drink. We saw bald eagles and young eagles without the white heads, as well as an otter swiming across to the other side of the river. One of the bald eagles swooped down in front of us and scooped up a fish, you can see him eating it in the tree in one of the pictures.
AAAhhhh, spending time with family in God's country, what could be better?!
Hope you all are having a great day!


  1. GREAT pictures! Were you not afraid of dropping your camera in the water?

  2. Looks like a wonderful time. You simply must be near water if it's going to be that hot!

  3. Looks like a blast!!! I've never been kayaking before! Glad you had a great time :)

  4. WOW!! This looks like a dream trip to me! I would join you in a heart beat! Love your pics, Kris.
