Row, Row, Row Your Raft

Chris has wanted to float the canal behind the houses across the street from ours since the beginning of summer with Cadence, but just hasn't had the time. Something seems to come up the times he has planned. I told him today to come home after work and take her. She has been wearing her swimsuit often the last couple of days. We borrowed a raft from our neighbors, the Gardners, and they launched down the river!
It is a calm little river. Usually, people tube it, but it is cold and I know that Cadence would have screamed and refused to get in the water after she touched it if they took tubes. The raft was perfect!

Unfortunately, Cadence got a bonk on her head while floating! There is a part where the canal splits into two canals and you have to get out and go around a headgate and get back in. Somehow, as Chris and Cadence were getting back in, a swing that swings across the river hit her in the head. She received her second goose egg this summer. It was a big bonk and is now a nice little bruise. I asked her if she had fun and she didn't really love it. I think it was a result of the bonk since that was fresh on her mind.

You guys are always doing such fun things. Cadence is so stinkin' cute! I'd be sad if I bonked my head and a goose egg, ouch :(

That's a nasty bump! Sad for Cadence. It still looks like they had fun though... Hey I was wondering if you could do me a big favor? Keri Blackburn left me a message on my blog saying she wanted to invite me to see her blog but doesn't have my e-mail. Could you give it to her? It's kylee87@hotmail.com. Thanks so much! We still need to do something!

I am so sorry she got hurt! Maybe you can try again another day and she might like it better.
