Rafting the American River

I just want to say that everyone should have a manly man for a friend. Paul Middleton is a manly man. He does everything cool, rafting being one of them. It is even better when the Manly man is nice enough to take you out to do cool stuff with him. On Saturday we went up to the Middleton's place with our friends the Bouck's and Anderson's and rafted the river. I think we were on the river for 3 1/2 hours, and we loved every minute of it.Don't be jealous of our pasty white bodies!

I think we were the only ones who got the memo that we needed to smile

After taking a few moments to relieve himself in the river, Mike Bouck pulled Matt Anderson out of the water, like a shark was about to take his life. We are saddend to report that Mike's powerful pull was done with such force, that Matt lost his favorite shirt (you can view Matt's favorite shirt in the photo above, his is on the left side) that he had tucked in the back of his swim shorts. After our raft trip the topless Matt and shoeless Dan walked into Old Navy (don't they have a policy of no shirt, no shoes, no service...well not for these boys, they walked in the store like it ain't no thang!) After 10-15mins of shopping Matt successfully found himself a nice new pink polo, and Dan successful found $2.50 flip flops. Why did we have to get Matt a shirt and Dan some sandals? Because we had to eat at our new favorite Italian Restaurant, Macaroni Grill! (See the Olive Garden Post Below) Rachel Anderson was a trooper. She changed in the McDonald's bathroom and went straight to work as a Server at the Macaroni Grill. Rachel served us the best Italian meal we've had in recent memory!

Thanks Paul and Jenny for a great time!

Did you know I can float without a life jacket? I just bounce off the rocks too, boing boing, and down the river I go.

That manly man must be a really cool dad! :)

Lauren said...

Yeah, I always thought Bro. Middleton was the manliest man ever. Without him we probably would never be able to have manly mutual activities. Three cheers for Middletons.

Sounds like you could make a movie out of that whole ordeal! Just wanted to let you guys know that I changed my blog address to www.sweet-things-in-life.blogspot.com. My sister has me paranoid about my last name on the internet

Pasty white? I thought you guys lived in California :) I'm so jealous you got to go rafting. I guess I didn't get enough as a kid. Looks like it was a blast! What a cool guy to take you down the river :) Wonder what he's like as a Dad...
