Again I have been gone for awhile here on blog land. This time my family and I went on a river kyaking and rafting trip down the lower fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, the trip was absolutely amazing from Start to finish. With a ton of research we decided to go through a company called, ROW based out of Couer d'Alene, Idaho which caters to families all across the world. They actually have what they call a river Jester that comes on the trip to help with entertaining the kids. We kyaked or rafted pretty much most of the day, swam in rapids and in the cold river a ton of the time and they cooked 3 square meals for us on the beaches that lined the Salmon River. We camped under the stars every night and the kids slept longer than they ever did in the past, at least 10hrs a night. I guess the fresh air and the continuous sun and exercise was really good for them.
Unfortunately, I had to come back early with my little 5 yr old because we are moving really soon and tons of things needed to get done to both houses over the next week before we close on our current house and move out officially so another week in Idaho was not in the cards for me. Life has been very different for me this year, little racing, some decent training and lots of other things going on. That being said, I can't wait to move to our new home and finally get settled.
More pictures of our family and the kids rafting when I get my camera.
