This weekend was Sarah’s family’s annual river trip that they’ve been taking literally for decades with a couple of other neighborhood families. We were ging to spend one night camping there but we’ve been so swamped lately plus there’s this whole heatwave thing so decided instead to just join them at the campsite for the day on Saturday. We arrived while almost everyone was still on the river canoeing. While we waited, we went down to the river with Dave, Cyndi and their kids.
Julien and Porter in their life vests that the camp nazis insisted all the kids had to wear.
Alice was none to happy about having to wear a life vest and resisted it.
Instead, she and Sarah played on the bank of the Russian River.
But Porter and Jukes seemed okay with their vests abd had a great time.
They waded all through the shallow river.
Meanwhile, ALice found some mud to play with.
She kept transporting mud back to the river.
Jules and Porter with Julien’s super soaker.
Porter demonstrating the super soaker.
Cyndi and Lily, who was no more excited about the vest than Alice.
Dave takes Porter and Julie for a ride.

While Alice got muddier and muddier.
But the boys stayed in the water the whole time we were there.
