2 rafts, 1 kayak, and 11 canoes

That is what it takes to get 14 adults, 18 kids, and 2 dogs down an 8 mile stretch of river on a float trip. It also takes 5 hours (when there are LOTS of stops involved). That has got to be one of the funnest things we do as a family. Family, meaning my hubby's sisters and brother and a couple of special friends. All the kids absolutely LOVE it. This is the 2nd year that we've all gone together, and I hope we continue to go every year.

My nephews Nick and Grant, and my Ty.

My M, SIL Donna, and niece Sydney.

My Andrew, in the canoe that sported his football number (not the 17!).

And here's Cap'n Jack, making faces at me as he sits upon his royal Barbie throne (borrowed from the lovely Sydney - don't worry, we didn't point out the Barbie to him!)

This is some of the group the next day. We picked a great spot on the river, to watch that day's floaters as they went past.

More pics tomorrow!

Looks like fun! We're doing a river raft trip down a stretch of the Delaware river next week. Can't wait!

Jack's expression sitting in that Barbie chair is priceless! Sooo cute! RK has nothing but good things to say about Jack. We hope we can get together sometime. I can be contacted via my blog: either leave a comment or click on the Contact link right below the header.
