The Mighty Big Sue

Happy Birthday, Feeche!

Dr. Dh had the great idea to take Feeche on the Big Sue for his Birthday. 
A little adventure among men (with a girl or 2 thrown in for good measure) is a good thing, right?

 A gorgeous day for a picnic and a paddle!

This little boat flew through the water- tons of fun!
Cub mastering the waves!

After sailing some smooth waters, the men-folk told Flower and I they'd meet us down-stream and started out alone. The were having a blast until they hit low water. Very low water. A couple of miles of it. It took about 4 hours to go 1 mile because they ended up portaging, pushing, pulling, and dragging both the canoe and kayak. They were more than happy to end their adventure long after dinner!

Cub's first words out of the boat, "LAND!" 
His second words were, "Where's the food?!"
Here he sums up the energy level all three of them had at the end of their little adventure. 

But we stayed long enough for Flower to hop back in and paddle around the gorge area.
She and I traversed the entire park several time waiting for the mighty adventurers to get to the landing point! 
Gluten free cake party on Saturday to dual celebrate both our b'days.

Thank-you M family for your support!!
 (i.e. the loan of the boats, and loading them into and on-top of the car ; )
Ya'll rock!
