Rowing on the River!

Mom is telling this part of the story and I will finish it next week! Just to hold the suspense... I'll give you a little clue...I tend to be in the middle of many accidents. For Dad's 50th birthday I decided to surprise him with a little get away. I called his boss and arranged for a couple of days off from work. Megan was out visiting Donna in Idaho so when she came back she was coming into the Columbus airport and I bought a ticket for Donna to come back home with her. I sent Dad into the airport to get Megan and SURPRISE Donna was there too, he wasn't real sure what was going on so when he got back into the car I let him know that he had a few days off from work and we where going to a cabin I had rented in southern ohio. I think the cabin's name was Moose Lodge. It was sooooo far off the beaten path but it was really nice and cute. There was a patio with a grill and hot tub, 2 bedrooms and a great room with a nice kitchen. I had bought steaks from Marshalville for his birthday dinner and the day of his birthday we went on a canoe trip. The river was really too low but we didn't know that until they had dropped us off and left. Soooo Dad and Kelli went in one canoe and Mom, Donna, and Lindsey in another one. Megan stayed in the cabin. Well you and Dad did just fine we on the other hand not so good. I actually got out of the canoe and pushed and pulled it most of the way! Great fun I must say. As you and Dad where paddling along we were getting stuck on logs, rocks, pebbles you name it. We were having a hilariously fun time. There was one corner we rounded everyone in a canoe and there it was a log across the river, you and Dad had already got around it and were standing on top of it to help us. You two were as dry as a bone we were soaked especially me, not just soaked but my shoes where soggy and wet. You and Dad helped us get around the log without getting any wetter and you two were still as dry as a bone. So off we went finally the river was deeper and we were paddling and giggling having a great time then........ Story to be continued next week...
