Even if Forrest is soon to be three, in 10 short days...we did succeed today in floating the river with our entire little family. We encountered white water...enough to make the boating extraordinaire hubby a bit nervous....a couple steelhead, (small, but still fighters!), some blissful moments of naked toddlerhood, some diaper drama, and a LOT of gorgeous sunshine and peaceful river watching.
Even though this river is literally in our backyard, I haven't been on it since summer, and this is Talin's first time floating the river. We had Forrest on it at the wee age of 3 -4 months. With Talin, though, given he and Forrest are a package deal, it's taken a bit longer.
We did more than survive though, and 5 hours later even made it home for nap time for the eldest Fulton boy.
The boys both had a blast and Talin even enjoyed a peaceful river snooze in his carseat for the final hour.

|Happy mama, happy baby!|
|"wooahh Talin, don't fall down...!"|
|Happy river boys|
|Forrest has the BIGGEST dump known to man, gets a clean diaper, and gets so happy he decides to bare it all!|
|Getting that pee-pee thing down I tell ya....|
|Little steelie for the Dad and super guide of the group|
|Some catch fish, others catch GATORS!!!!|
|We enjoyed the river, and Forrest kept entertained with his Gator dissecting his mechanical fish....whatever works!|
