rafting and weddings

This weekend was a blast. It was one of the best weekends I've had since my trip to Tennessee. We were on the river for most of the day on Saturday, camped out over night on the bank of the river and then rafted for 1/2 the day on Sunday before heading home. There was about 300 people on our trip and about 50 or so in our group... mostly friends of my Mom's from the hospital. We had tons of food and drinks and plenty of laughs. We really enjoyed it... now I want to plan a trip for next summer for all of mine and Ron's friends.

Kacy and I were partners and even though I came pretty close to pushing her outta the raft or hitting her on the head with the paddle, we survived the experience. Once we got our rhythm we were cruising down that river.

A quick photo after we packed up all the gear to head back to the river.

The craziest thing was there was a wedding in our group on Saturday night. We saw these two ladies on the river with veils on so I yelled congrats to them and they told us the wedding was that night back at camp and everyone was invited.
I did end up bringing my canon so I went over to their camp site and took pictures for them. They were so thrilled to have someone with a nice camera there to document the event. I got some email addresses so I will get the photos out to them today. It was a really cute ceremony and I was so happy I could help with the photos.

I have a few water cameras I will develop this week so hopefully we have some more pics of us actually rafting.

hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
