Then Saturday I was off to spend the weekend in Jasper for Laikkens bachelorette party. First on the agenda was kayaking. This was my first time to kayak so I was nervous. I have canoed several times and used to enjoy it but do not anymore, so I was not sure how kayaking would go. I will admit it was a lot easier than canoeing and after the first 45 minutes my legs stopped shaking. I never flipped, even going through rapids backwards and sideways (not on purpose) :) The last 20 minutes we got caught in a torrential rain! It was cold and windy and we all paddled as fast as we could to get to the end! It was fun and I am glad I did it, but not anything I am dying to do again - I am not sure why, it just isn't my thing. (I hope to have some pictures of this excursion soon - someone else took them)
The rest of the weekend was spent in the cabin watching Laikken open her shower gifts, eating amazing food, making a run to Branson for a little shopping, girl talk and lots of laughing!
While I was gone Nathan took the kids to Noah's ballgame and to his nephew Paxtons birthday party. I got home to a clean house (just how I left it) and the kids each got me 2 dozen roses! I love little surprises like that. Nathan doesn't have the kids alone a lot so I was unsure how it would go, but he said it was "a walk in the park" :)
After I got home Sunday we went to the kids babysitters son Logan's birthday party. It was such a nice small party and Logan appreciated all his gifts so much - it was so cute to watch.
We ended our busy weekend with Rivertowne BBQ, front yard baseball, bike riding and a four-wheeler ride before bed! Now on to more baseball and a wedding :)
