Shooting the Hooch

This past weekend a bunch of us went tubing down the Chattahoochee river in celebration of Lacey and Leah's Birthdays! We used a company called Up the River Outfitters. I've been wanting to do this for a while so it was the perfect time to do it! I was warned that the water would be cold, but was not expecting that cold. They said it was 42 degrees and although it was freezing, I'd say it was probably 60 or below. I love lazy river type things so I had a blast just floating and enjoying the scenery. David of course took it to the next level and would get out and swim. I'm pretty sure he got frost bite.
Here we are waiting to get our life jackets on.
Life Jacket Shot! How short am I?
Here is our school bus that took us to our drop off point.

View of the river, it had rained a ton the night before so water isn't as clear as normal.
As you can see David and I strategically placed the paddles over our stomach and bodies so the paddles came in handy.
Here are some shots from everyone floating down the Chattahoochee.
We used ropes to tie us up into a big circle with the cooler tubes floating in the middle.
We had so much fun that we are going to do it again soon with Davids family!
