Labor Day Adventures

I have this really cool hubby that lets me cut loose once in awhile (okay, it's really whenever I want : ). So I rose early on Labor Day, met 5 other ladies in town for breakfast, and then we launched our kayaks on the Red Cedar for about 3 hours. It was so relaxing! We saw a few deer, multiple eagles, a raccoon, kingfisher, a HUGE turtle, and a variety of fish. But the highlight of the whole morning was the fellowship! We had women who are Believers, women searching for Christ, and women who don't even know they need Him. What a great opportunity! Thank you God!

Here are the gals:

Well, then I got home to find that the coolest dad in the world taught Sis how to ride sans training wheels! How cool is that when you are 4?!

But the best part of the day was the afternoon & evening. Just the 5 of us. We went out for a late lunch, and then we headed for the hills. The Blue Hills, that is. We 4-wheeled down old logging trails, in search of a felsenmeer gorge. We couldn't find one, but we sure had fun trying. It's there. We've seen it, oh, about 8 years ago. We WILL find it again. This is it (thanks to another photographer):

We then had a picnic supper right there on the trail, and then headed home. It really was a full, fun day. Again.... Thank you God!

WOW! Sounds like a great time! Most women get together and go shopping but kayaking and 4-wheeling sound much more exciting! Great pictures too!
