Blame it on the Water

It's been a minute, huh? Or more like close to two weeks!

This time I'm going to blame it on the water. If you've been here before (hi!) then you may have seen me mention a certain camping trip. We started by buying and testing out a new tent.


It tested great in the living room if you're wondering!

Since we wanted to take Moose, we decided a snazzy life jacket was a necessity.


 This picture still cracks me up. A) His fluff is ridonkulous. B) He spent a few minutes terrified to move - after he realized it wasn't locking him in one position for the rest of his life he was totally fine, but man. He was not a fan in this moment.

And SINCE he was so terribly fluffy, we went ahead and got a summer haircut. 

He doesn't want to talk about it. But look how cute he is all packed up with the rest of the supplies!

So early two Friday mornings ago Engineer Husband and I shipped out super early to go claim a campsite. We ended up being WAY early (EH was convinced they would all get taken by 10AM) but it was all worth it because we got a great spot and were able to just sit around and relax until the rest of the group arrived.


Later our friends arrived and it was all about finding the perfect hot dog sticks, s'mores and of course, adult beverages. Since our phones had no service (which was awesome), I just locked it up in the truck for the weekend.

The next day we met up with another couple and headed out for the float! If you are from here or ever find yourself in The Natural State, I highly suggest experiencing the Buffalo River. We've had so much rain that the river was moving quickly but it is still one of my absolute favorite spots on the Earth.


We camped one more night but unfortunately were met with a torrential downpour. Luckily the campsite had a restaurant that made for an easy dinner and by the time we made it back to camp we were (albeit after much effort) able to start another camp fire and hang out a little bit longer.

After the whirlwind of the river, we made it through another work week and got ready for another weekend on the water - this time on the lake!


This picture does no justice to the amount of boats that were all tied up in the cove. It got even more crowded by the end of the afternoon. Hope you like your boat neighbors!
 

 Moose's life jacket was extra beneficial when paired with another life jacket.
 
I think he enjoyed the raft a little more though - especially when it was in the boat. Regardless, he was a trooper during both weekends. Good boy!




 All in all, they were both fun, somewhat relaxing and sometimes crazy weekends but we all made it - probably a little more sun burnt than we'll ever admit - but happy all the same.

Hope you have had a great couple of weekends - and a Happy 4th!
