Happy Fourth!

We hung out with the Douglass Fam for most of the fourth. First thing, we headed up to Banks and most of us rafted The Main (Payette River). Ben stayed on land with his mom and the girls because a)the girls can't swim, b)mom hates rafting and needed man power to put on an AMAZING half-point bbq and c)he pulled his hamstring in his softball game and couldn't swim if he needed to save his life. I only rafted the first half, then Ben, the girls, mom, and I headed to the Gutter (a local river hangout) to play on the boogie boards.

Our Waite cousins met us there and we had SO much fun in the water together, even though it was FREEZING!
Ellie ADORES aunt Jen, though it's hard to tell in this pic :)
She did have fun kickin around in the river, until she tipped over and got her face wet. Poor thing!

Anyway, it was a fantastic day. We were happy and blessed to spend it with loved ones!

You forgot to mention that Ben drowned Brook on the "boogie board"... that was a big part of the trip! I adore that Ellie too - I'm going to miss you all like crazy!
