Ode to Alder Creek

It was really the most relaxing day we'd had since the baby came. We decided to spend some time at our favorite river spot before the summer ended and school started again. I spent the better part of my time there trying to coax the girls down this little rapid on the inner tube. I could tell Mia would do it before we left. At one time she sat in the water at the entry point contemplating if she should go down. Then she ran over to me and asked, "Mommy, will you give me something if I go down that rapid?" I assured her that she could have 2 oreos if she did, and next thing I knew she was going down the river rapid. After that, we couldn't get her to stop... not even for 2 oreos:)
