Campfires, kayaking, and roaches

Well, I made it back safe and sound from my outdoor adventure weekend. It was a lot of fun and we had many good laughs with our friends Ben and Lindsey. Please share in our memories below:

Josh and Ben swimming in the river.

Here is a funny video of them being babies because it was cold (Ok, Lindsey and I are even bigger babies because we wouldn't go near the water!):

Ben caught this disgusting beetle/roach thing. When people talk about staying alive in the wild by eating bugs, I think they mean these kinds of small animals. I mean... it's so huge, it really could keep you going for a few days.

Lindsey and I at the fire:

I even went kayaking for the first time! It was a lot of fun and very relaxing. I SO WISH I had my camera with me. You see, there were only two kayaks (we borrowed from a neighbor), and Josh and Ben being the gentlemen that they are, let Lindsey and I use them. What did Josh and Ben use, you ask? Oh. An inner tube and a boogie board. Yep! We "towed" them on the back of our kayaks for a while so they could keep up. It looked so funny.

Before we left for kayaking:

Josh sat in the back and held the kayaks in the car:

He got a bit dusty from the drive on the dirt road. Who would have thought??

Oh, and I have to add:
One of the best parts was that I got to capture this fond memory on our way home:

I mean, how often does someone capture THAT MOMENT of sheer bliss on camera?? Only a true blogger would, folks. Yes, that is me.

It was a great weekend!
