Canooooing

Today Jim and I went canoeing with some of my family. There were 8 of us, so 4 canoes. It was a nice time. And while we were away, little Jimmy got to stay with his Grammy & Grandpa allll day! And he was a good boy and didn't cry at all!


Our canoeing adventure was a 3-4 hour trip down the river. Not a very exciting river, but its exciting enough for me! We even tipped over once...luckily I was a smart cookie and had my camera (NOT my big Canon!) in a plastic zip bag (2 actually) and then inside of another tote bag type thing tied to the canoe. So it didn't get ruined! We came upon a rope swing and stopped there for a while to have a snack and then Jim, my step cousin Jesse and I all jumped off the rope. It was a blast!

We saw lots of turtles and birds along the river bank, and some little fishies in the water. Not much else wildlife, some dragonflies & bugs, but the ride was pretty and scenic.

Our little buddy for part of the ride
Then, after our ride, Jim and I changed our clothes and went to an early dinner JUST THE TWO OF US!! I think we have only done that one other time since Jimmy was born! It was so strange, but it was nice to get away for a little while. And my little man was so excited to see his daddy & mommy when we picked him up, it was so cute. Well, I am off to bed, hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
