This past weekend we ventured north a little ways to float the Buffalo River. We left Friday after I left work and picked up a few misc. things and headed to Silver Hills, Arkansas.
We were the last of the family members to arrive – there were 7 of us total. We stayed up late talking (and a few of us drinking) on the front porch of the cabin – watching (and screaming) as the bat(s) flew by.
The next morning, we headed out to the Buffalo River Outfitters to get on a school bus that dropped us off at the river with our canoes. We had 4 canoes total. Out of those 4 canoes, only our canoe tipped over the entire trip! We were right off of the launching site and I had just gotten seated when the hubs attempts to get in and tips our canoe over! I went in the river, while he managed to somehow not fall in! Figures, right?
Anyways, we did the 6 mile canoe float and had a great time! We packed sandwiches and had lunch out on the river. We swam about every 15 minutes and we kept slathering on the sunscreen. I managed to escape the 6ish hours without getting sunburned! Woohoo! While out there we also ran into a few coworkers celebrating a 30th birthday and a few relatives that we had no idea was out there!
We then went back to the cabin, showered, and began grilling out hamburgers and hotdogs! The food was great! I must’ve been tired, because after eating, I passed out on the couch and slept until the next morning!
We all headed back to our homes the next morning. We had a great time, but I was glad to sleep in our own bed last night!!
After getting home, I did 5 loads of laundry, went grocery shopping, went to Home Depot, and then we grilled out some hot dogs and ate chips and dip! Btw, I made homemade Guacamole dip – it’s to die for! YUM!!
Today marks day one of the Half Marathon training! I’m up for 2 miles after work! Sounds easy peasy except that the high today is 102!!!!!
