We have had pretty eventful weekends for several weekends in a row. Several weeks ago Daniel and I decided to finally bite the bullet after two years of talking about it and we bought ourselves a couple of kayaks! The only way I could get myself to do it was to call it our 1 year anniversary present, PLUS my birthday (this month) and Daniel’s birthday in the Fall.
|Our sweet friend Grace gave us the car rack for a wedding gift last year. Thanks, Grace!|
|Luna was very concerned about Daniel out on the lake testing a kayak without her.|
|If she had stayed in the kayak with Daniel she wouldn’t have been soaking wet and she wouldn’t have had to watch from the shore. That’s where she swam to when she dove off the boat.|
So this weekend we finally got the chance to try out the kayaks as well as Luna’s new doggy life-jacket on a float trip with my family. The river I grew up floating on is about three and a half hours away so we decided to camp too. My uncle and two little cousins camped with us and we had a wonderful time telling scary stories (Hayden promised to “Scare your face off”) and making banana boats. Banana Boats=Banana+chocolate+marshmallows+whatever else you have +tinfoil+campfire. So fun.
|This was the most organized we were going to get for a group shot. That’s my kayak in the front. Isn’t it pretty?|
|Luna’s 2nd time camping. She slept without her crate for the first time ever and did great in the tent!|
|Luna is a great car-rider. But she worries when Daniel is in the gas station.|
I don’t have any photos of Luna riding in Daniel’s kayak or mine because our waterproof case broke for the still camera 😦 We’re hoping we can glue the broken piece back together. I did take the Flip video in its waterproof case so I’ll post the video once I get it edited. Luna did SUCH a great job for her first float trip! We all came home exhausted and looking forward to doing it again next weekend for my birthday.
