Rapid Revelries

To celebrate Kayla and Ethan's birthdays (yes, Kayla got two, count 'em, two parties!!) we went to one of our favorite spots in Maine, Coos Canyon!
It's a semi-fast flowing river with lots of places to swim and slide down rocks and jump off cliffs. We had oodles of fun!
Here Tash and Shay are demonstrating how much fun it is to float down the river- you have to be a bit careful of the jagged rocks, though.
Here are the interested spectators.
Someone decided the water was too cold and opted for a nap- although he looks slightly unrecoverable (I don't think that's a real word)!

We finally got to go on a hike!! Yay! Albeit a small hike, really more of a nature walk.
We crossed raging rivers!
Scaled rocky terrain!
And viewed God's incredible, gorgeous creation! How could anyone disbeleive in a Creator when there is such unfathomable beauty?
