Floating the River

Austin and I arrived in Alpine, Wyoming late Thursday night.

Friday we went to float the Snake River. Dad pulled his river boat down. Everyone had already made one trip the day before. Emma and Kelsee volunteered to watch all the kids, so the rest of us headed off.

We had to park some of the cars at the dock and then drive up to put in the water. The boys had to hide in the back of the truck while we drove up the canyon.

I even jumped in with them a couple of times. The water was super cold, but refreshing.
Aaron, Steve, Austin and Me waiting for the boat to catch up to us.
The current was so hard for me to stand in.
Me getting swept away by the current.

On Saturday we decided we wanted to make another trip. Mom and Dad decided not to go... We were on our own. Austin and Aaron took turns "driving" the boat.

One of my favorite pictures.

Dad and Jordan waited at Big Kahuna to take some pictures.
Thanks Mom and Dad for pulling the boat down.....we had a blast.
