Canoeing with the Paces . . .did you really want to?????

So, I thought I would send a million pictures of our families weekend canoe trip weather you wanted them or not. Here's Ike, ready to go. Im not sure if you really wanted these pics, just though I would send them to wake up the blog!
The whole family except for me. I am taking the picture. Oh, Levi isn't in this one either. But there are a lot of people, so most poeple would think its a whole family.

The girls readying their canoe. They can so handle this.

Levi is going down alone in the little green one. If it looks a little bunged up, its because once, when grandpa tied three canoes on the top of his ford Fiesta, this one came off and went bouncing down the road. But it still seems to work!!!

ND takes Nathan and the little boys. I wanted him to go with Levi, for the untimate safety for the little ones, but he said he could take it. By the end Lincoln had jumped out of the canoe, and was floating along in the river holding on the the canoe rope. But he does that every time.

Levi alone in his tiny boat.

The girls coming in a the end of the trip.

Marg,
Is that the same one we went inner tubing on? It looks like so much fun, and like a great way to cool down! I was just telling Laila last week what fun we had doing that when we were at your house!

Oh, that looks like so much fun! Sometimes the 7 hour drive doesn't even sound that bad...until I think about it!

I got to take a book and drive the truck to the other end of the river to pick everyone up. So I got to have a very peaceful time too! I like going down very much, but I like alone and quiet time very much also!!!!! With a Mary Higgins Clark book. . .nice.

next time take both cars, and just leave one at the end. That way you can all go down and while everyone is getting dry 2 of you can go get the big car and all can canoe.

by the way, i have scratches on the roof of my infinity, from canoe hauling. I know what your saying. "what type of idiot puts a canoe on an infiniti" the type who prizes memories made with family more than money. and those scratches were worth every penny. (also the infinity's paint wasnt so great in the first place.

Looks like so much fun! I'd want to go canoeing, except that it's been so hot that we'd all have to jump in to cool off, and then we'd never get anywhere!
