Floatin’ down the river

I got to spend my Memorial Day with friend’s at their riverside house. Let me just say, it’s gorgeous. Gor-geous!!

We had so much stinking fun. All their kids had a blast. They brought out the boat and we all got to ride up and down the river. The adults weren’t crazy enough…ok, even the kids weren’t crazy enough to get in the water. It’s freezing.

The river is ‘created’ by all the snow that melts off the Sierra mountains so it’s ice cold.
You can see the mountains waaay off in the distance. Those big things bring us aaaaall this water. brrrrr

When it was time for all the girls to get in, the boat wouldn’t start so the guys literally had to paddle us down the river to the truck where we jumped the boat.

Picture a man knee deep in water holding jumper cables that are also in the water and hooking them up to a running truck. All us girls were cringing. But it started right up and we promptly took off down the river. Only a guy would think nothing of that.

Everyone was hoping to bounce the boat on waves to help the girl who’s 9 months pregnant go into labor. Didn’t work though unfortunately.

It was tough being there without G-man. Being around all those couples who I can see love each other all so much and love hanging out together made me miss him so much it was hard being the only non couple person there. But despite it, I was a wonderful time with wonderful friends.

How did you all get to spend Memorial Day? Did you go to the cemetery to place flags on the gravestones? Remember someone you know who lost their lives serving the country? BBQ with friends and family? I’d love to know.

Pin It Now!
