Float Trip

I had such a fun weekend. Scott and I, plus some of our neighbor friends, floated the Elk River on Saturday and it was so. much. fun.
We got there around 10:30 and it took us about 5 or 6 hours to get all the way down. We slowly cruised the water and took a few stops along the way to snack on the food we brought in our cooler and people watch. There are all sorts of characters on the Elk let me tell ya.
All of us girls sat at the front and held onto each others canoes so we could all be connected together. I knew we would have a great time but it was even more fun than I imagined and I was really sad when it came to an end. I'm trying to talk everyone into doing it one more time this summer and everyone agreed that we should! I hope we get a chance to!!
I was happy to be in the sun on Saturday because it's rained here basically every day for the last week and a half. I haven't been able to go to the pool in so long and it's really bumming me out! Although I am grateful for the rain because we definitely needed it but I can't let the end of summer get rained out like this! I've totally recruited some of the stay at home moms in the neighborhood to hang with me at the pool through September. The pool is open until the temps outside are freezing but once school starts nobody seems to go anymore. It's so hot in September so it's totally unnecessary for us to bid farewell to the pool until at least October 1st. I'm glad I've got some of the ladies on board with me! Have I mentioned before how much I like my neighborhood pool? And neighbors? I know I say it all the time but we totally hit the jackpot with the best neighborhood ever. I can't imagine not living in Hyde Park!! I love it here so much.
