Father’s Day Canoe Trip
Father’s Day to all you great and necessary fathers out there! I wanted this year’s Father’s Day to be memorable and special for Scott so we went on a canoe trip starting from a point on our property and ending on the Coosa River System (Lake Jordon).
I was ready for a quiet, relaxing trip, but it seems that the water was quite low and I was in for a REAL workout and beat up legs to boot! I am not sure what kind of shoes one is to use on a trip like this, but the ones that I had on were not those
The kids were having a blast! Quite honestly, I was too. After carrying the canoes for about 1 1/2 miles over rocks, the creek finally opened up to a beautiful scene and a much more relaxing ride.
We broke out the snacks and slowly (some of us anyway; my kids love to compete and were in a silent race to the end) made our way to the boat ramp where I was going to get in the truck with my oldest son and bring back the other truck and trailer from where we began. Scott had asked me about 1/2 mile into the trip if I had put my keys in the dry bag. I said that I thought so, knowing that I really had no idea. I realized upon our arrival at the boat ramp that I had left the keys in my purse which was in the truck at our land. At least I remembered to put the keys in my purse. The kids did not mind and had a great time swimming while waiting on my mom to come pick me
up to take me back to the truck. Well, if that was the only glitch in the day, I need to be quite thankful.
This was a GREAT day and my familyis smiling. Who could ask for more?
