Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

Our Summer in a Nutshell...... and Photographs

Part IV

White Water Adventures

 We decided to take the kids to something they've been begging to do as our end-of-summer blast. We were already planning a trip to Charlotte and knew that the US National Whitewater Center is nearby. I was a little nervous that the little kids would not enjoy this excursion because they could not get in a raft.

 But, Paul and the three older kids had the time o their lives!


That's my baby-girl looking back on the far right. She really loved rafting!

Yes, those are my boys almost completely under water in the front of the raft!

Turned out there were plenty of things to occupy the little kids too!

My little Dare-Devil!

Claire had a blast showing her ropes skills!

Actually, my worries were completely worthless..... The little kids had just as much fun as the big kids!

Of course, my big kids were in their element! 

And, I don't know if you can tell or not, but that those skinny legs with purple shorts in the way back..... the ones clinging to the pole...... yeah, that's me! 

Not in my element. 

Totally, not.

Close up.
And the one on the ropes,
(not the kid in orange) that's Isabel!

Which is the ONLY reason I'm up there.

Yes, we did do all that, and more in one day, in place!

This went down in the books as one of the best vacation days ever!
