Canoe Trip

Yesterday I went on my first ever outing with work/nursing friends!  We went canoeing!  I have never really been canoeing so I wasn't sure what to expect.  But it turned out to be so much fun!  I picked up another Lindsay from work and we headed out to Lynda's.  She lives about 40 minutes out of town and near a river.  Once we got there we hung out for a while and Lynda had made brunch!  The food was delicious.  We had breakfast casserole, homemade banana bread, muffins, and fruit! Yummmm!!!  We then headed to Foggy Bottom to rent our canoe for the 2 hour trip.  

Once we finally got in our canoe, the sun started blaring and I was thinking it is pretty darn hot.  Then the sun went behind the clouds and it was super nice.  Then the clouds turned really gray and I was thinking uh oh.  Then the storm blew in.  The rain came.  And down poured. For literally 45 minutes. We hurried to try to finish canoeing. AHHHHH.  But we had a wonderful time and were cracking up at the memories we were making! Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of us after the rain but WE WERE SOAKED!  

We went back to Lynda's house afterward and changed into dry clothes and hung out for a while to avoid traffic.  We then loaded up and headed home.  It was a great day!

Can't wait for next outing with these ladies!

Getting ready!  Lindsay and I thought for sure we would need to wear these when the rapids came!
The group-minus one!  Dawn, myself, Lindsay, and Lynda
Turns out we didn't need the life jacket.  But it was so peaceful out there ;)

And then some random dog came into our canoe because we hit rock and had to get out and push! hhaha!
