On Day 2 we went canoeing. I was very nervous about canoeing with a 2 year old on this river. It was a 7 mile long trip with a bit of rapids where they had a fatality this spring when someone wasn't wearing a life jacket, got flipped and hit his head and drowned. So I was a bit nervous. Our canoe had Andrew in the front, me and Kaellyn in the middle and Briss in the back. We got over the "rapids" just fine. A bit of water to our boat but nothing serious. One canoe in our group did tip but they didn't have any children in their boat just a dog who panicked which is what caused them to fall in.
The rest of the canoe trip went fine. Kaellyn was exhausted and tired of being confined so she had a meltdown for about 20 minutes and my patience was waning. But it was a patience issue not a camping issue so I was very grateful. I also had a great time teasing Briss and Andrew with singing songs about water such as, "Just around the river bend" "Cry me a River" "Pirates Life for Me" "Down by the Bay" They were all annoyed but I was having a blast and secretly they enjoyed it. All around the whole trip took about 6 hours at the pace we went.

The final morning we all got up and had a great breakfast of bacon and eggs. Then we packed up and headed home for a nice long shower!
