Cute even if he is covered in mud!

Last weekend. . .
we went canoeing/kayaking down the mighty Mississippi River (ok only 7 miles of it :) ) with several other families. I have to tell you I was a little nervous, intimidated, scared, I mean this is the Mississippi River but I was with friends that I trust mine, my sons', and my hubby's life with (that is apparent - right?). The start of the trip I canoed with my oldest, Hunter, while hubby took the "power" boat with the supplies, my youngest, Mason and a few others. I quickly learned my oldest is definitely my hubby's child, he is stubborn just like him and we do not work well together or at least not canoeing - I have to keep telling myself "He is 7". Anyway we went the first leg of the trip (about 3 1/2 miles) and stopped to grill burgers, play in the water, and visit. The second leg of the trip I kayaked by myself for approx. 3 1/2 miles (first time ever!) and it was so much fun.
