River Weekend

Michael and I went to the Tennessee River this past weekend.  Carla and Chuck own a house right off of the river, so we went up to hang out with them.  Stacey, Steven, Taylor, Stephanie, Braden, Jeff, and Gage were there for some fun too.  We spent Sunday playing on the river and enjoying the sunny weather.  It was extremely hot so the water felt great!

Monday it was time to start wrapping everything up.  Carla, Chuck, Braden, Michael, and I went out for an afternoon ride after the sun went down.

Braden wanted to go fishing on the afternoon ride.  We soon found out that he only liked casting the poles.  He wasn't patient enough to wait for a bite.  He was fun to watch.  One minute he was scared to touch the worms and the next he was excited to stick it on the hook.  We didn't catch anything.

Carla looked surprised

Once Braden got bored with fishing he decided to jump off of the boat and take a little swin.  He did this MANY times until it was too dark.

We had a great weekend!  It was very relaxing, and we had a lot of fun visiting with everyone.  I can't wait to do it again!!!
