When I was around 10 years old my Girl Scout troop, or maybe it was a Home schooling group? - It doesn't matter- went River Tubing. My dad took the day off and went as a chaperone. It was loads of fun and lasted for hours.
At one point we had to get around a small bridge and when I jumped off it I cut my knee on a rock. I didn't tell anyone at the time, but I still have the scar:)
My latest trip home to North Carolina had us enjoying another River Tubing trip! It felt a little odd at first because you just "sit" in your tube and float down the river...I'm a little more used to more active, activities if you will.
I got used to it:)
|I forgot to put sunblock on my legs. BUT I did manage to get the cooler connected to my tube.|
River Tubing involves sitting in a tube and floating down a river. We brought lunch with us, so it also involved eating while floating. A hard days work.
|Macaroons are delicious no matter where you are!|
|My sweet nice- code name "Dandelion"|
|Two more nieces - code name - Star and Isabee|
|My dad. No he's not naked, you just can't see his swim trunks. |
You CAN see his busted thumb from dropping 250lbs on it.
|My brother Matt- code name - Awesome!|
Love you Matt!
|Someone lost their tube!|
|Dandelion, Star and Isabee all spent the first portion of the day IN the river.|
Children have no nerve endings.
|Matt is not a child and felt the cold river water to his bones.|
I do promise he had fun. Just not at this precise moment.
Did I mention the water was cold? It was. And Matt was very wet from retrieving the girls and their tubes earlier on. (They had gotten stuck on a rock or a branch or whatever).
It was a great day and I had loads of fun! I also got terribly sunburnt from not putting on any sunblock.
There was also a pet pig that had sparkly toenail polish.
