Rollin Down The River!

We had a great time playing in the Weber River today!  We went with the Frandsens and the Neffs.  We all had a blast floating the river (its a little low this year) and Nick even went down once with Mike's help. Then he and Lucas had fun watching and throwing rocks in.....Until Nick slipped and fell in and got swept down the river!  I jumped in after him and tried to catch up....which wasn't easy....but thankfully David was standing down stream to grab kids and was able to get to him and grab him.  OH THE trauma.  Both for Nick and myself and everyone watching!  Up side is that I'm no longer nervous to just jump in the river and swim!  After he'd calmed down Mike took him on to swim with him for a minute.  We really hope we haven't traumatized him for life!  Then Mike took the kids over for fun on the rope swing.  All of my boys except Nick did it this year.  Of course Lucas just swung back and forth until Mike pulled him off......but we're calling it a win!  All in all I'd say it was a good day.  AND I'm so thankful for life jackets!
