The river is incredibly low this year!!! In the past when we have gone it hasn't been very comfortable because there is no where to sit on the side of the river...just lots of shrubs and trees. Also it is usually deep and rushing fast. This year was so nice because it was so low there was actually a little beach to sit on and it was shallow almost all the way across. I didn't let the kids go more than 4 feet from the bank because the current picked up quite a bit after that, but Jackson went right to the middle and swam against the current.
We weren't planning on Alexander getting wet, so we didn't bring a suit for him. I don't know what I was thinking...of course he would want to get wet. We ended up stripping him down to his nakedness. He was in heaven! I parked myself on a towel, sipped water, and enjoyed snapping pictures of the action.
