Summer Bucket List: Float the River

I can officially cross off the first thing from my Summer Bucket List: Floating the river.

Ian & I were invited to tag along with a large group of people to float the Elk River so, of course, we grabbed some beer & our floaties and we were off! I don’t have many pictures because knowing me, my phone would have ended up in the water but it was nice to disconnect for a few hours anyway.

River floatIan had his priority Beer. Mine was more practical: sunscreen.

Floating the river was relaxing and we went with a great group of people! Ian & I both got so sunburned even though we went through an entire bottle of sunscreen haha.

First bucket list item down, stay tuned for the next one!

Memorial Weekend on the Farm

Ian & I decided to spend our Memorial Day weekend at his grandpa’s farm in Missouri & we had the best time! Ian hasn’t visited since he was a kid in ’99 yikes 🙂  so it was overdue for him to go back. His grandpa has 88 acres of land & it is real farmland y’all.

His grandpa drove us around to where he grew up and it was so sweet listening to his stories from when he was younger. He showed us a church his grandpa actually helped build & it was beautiful! It’s crazy to imagine that area 50+ years ago with dirt roads and one grocery store. It makes me wonder what everything will be like 50+ years from now when I’m showing my grandbabies around.

I am so thankful we took this weekend to spend with his grandpa. We met some wonderful people and Ian got to see some extended family members he hasn’t seen since he was little. It was a beautiful, relaxing, Memorial weekend!

Now time to rest up because next weekend we are headed to Dallas for our next roadtrip!
