River Rafting Adventure
Dang the weekends sure go by fast. I can't believe it's already another work week! Our weekend with one another was a lot of fun! Like I mentioned in my last post, we went to the cabin for the weekend with mom and dad Ford.Friday we went boating for most of the day, and it was SOOO nice!!!! I LOVE boating! Boating is seriously one of my very FAVORITE things to do. We were all able to get a couple runs in, and the water was perfect! We had lunch, and also was able to take a little nap, enjoying the nice weather.
We went back to the cabin around 4, we all ate dinner and then Steve, Ellen and I played some games while Bob worked outside. I seriously love Ellen. She is so much fun to be around! I seriously am super blessed to have such an awesome mom-in-law.
After we played some games, the three of us went to this little educational meeting that Manilla does. (I can't remember what they call the meeting) Any who, the lady who spoke, had a slide show on the old west outlaws. I'm not going to lie, at first I was a little unsure of how interesting this would be, but once we got there and listened to lady speak, it was REALLY interesting. It was also really nice to be sitting outdoors enjoying the night sky.
The educational meeting lasted about an hour, and then we went back to the cabin and had some chips and salsa with a smoothie. We enjoyed our snacks outside on the new patio they put it in. :)
Saturday morning we met with our family friend, Alan at Dutch John. (it's an hour away from Manilla) Alan is a super sweet guy, he invites the Fords every year to go river rafting with all of his family. Steve and I went 2 years ago, and we loved it! I couldn't wait to go again.
Not only do we enjoy the GORGEOUS view of the river, but everyone has a HUGE water fight. Everyone brings squirt guns, buckets, you name it. It's really funny because you can make alliances with other rafts and then target at one specific one and "corner" them. It's So dang fun! I wish I had pictures of the fight, but we don't have a water camera....maybe next year?
Our weekend get a way was so nice! I had a great weekend, thanks again mom and dad Ford!
*I'll post pictures this weekend!! I haven't had any time to download the pics on our comp :)
