Early in the week there was a good chance of rain on our river-floating parade, but it held out and we had an absolutely gorgeous day. We started going up to the Elk River in Missouri several years ago, and it has remained one of our favorite summer weekend activities. I’ve lost count of the times we’ve floated — whether it’s a holiday weekend or we otherwise found an excuse to get up there — but it is always a good time.

And something about being on the river must make us all think we are super photogenic because we tend to take a TON of photos every time we go. I pulled out a few of my favorites, but I stuck the rest in a video so you can more easily enjoy our day on the water.

It was perfect perfect perfect. Beautiful weather, good friends, and nice, relaxing laughter.

We took a relatively small group this time, and you know most of these folks — but here’s the line-up. L-R: Danny (Becky’s friend), Becky, Zeek (Becky’s friend), Sarah, Keith, Little Meechelle down front, Jeff, Don, Robbie (Meechelle’s boyfriend). Robbie and Meechelle came in from Dallas for the weekend.
