Santa was kind enough to bring my present a day early: December 24 was sunny, warm (relatively, as it was almost 40), and perfect for hitting the Clearwater River with [redacted] and (one of) his new kayak(s).
Photos from a sunny and warm (almost 70!) afternoon in northern Idaho. Why did I play hooky from work yesterday afternoon to go paddling? Because late October sunny and warm. Doy. Why are we still talking about this?
All this talk of fall? I call nonsense! It’s not officially autumn until the 22nd. And in that vein, I dragged some friends down to the Salmon River for a day trip to celebrate “It’s Not Fall Yet, Suckers!” day. (I say it’s a thing, so it’s a thing.)
We floated Carey Creek to Spring Bar (about 15 miles), watched the clouds burn off, felt the wind subside, and in general had a good time (I did, anyway).
Thanks to Doug & Susan and Chad & Megan (in the kayaks) for finding the babysitters and making it happen.
I’m way behind on life and posting about fun things we’ve done this summer, but here’s a quick look at our first family camping* / rafting trip from last week.
*technically, we camped once when Amber was about 18 months old, but it was so terribly terrible for her and us that we took five years off. This is our second first attempt.
Apparently, I’m fully Idahoan now: I liberally use the term “rig” instead of “vehicle,” and I’m blasting country music to get my work done.
What’s happening to me…
