Round Rock trip – part 2 – the Canoe Trip

So I left you where?  Hmmmm.  Oh, yes, at the river.  Keeping kids busy.  We decided to take one more day in Round Rock.  We always enjoy our time spent with Dan and Barbara and family.  Wish we could do it more.  Anyway, Dad wondered if Ross and the boys would like to take the canoe to the river and go canoeing.  Sure!  Sounds like fun.  Barbara and I would certainly enjoy a day filled with – nothing! 

Tuesday morning they loaded up the canoe and three boys and headed for a fun day canoeing. 

Oh, no, Darren, the little one, did not get to go.  Give him a few years!03-13-12 going canoeing RoundRock 02 Just playing before changing clothes.03-13-12 going canoeing RoundRock 03 03-13-12 going canoeing RoundRock 05 03-13-12 going canoeing RoundRock 06 03-13-12 going canoeing RoundRock 07 Here we go!03-13-12 going canoeing RoundRock 09

Now according to Ross they had fun most of the time until the canoe capsized.  Then he feared for his life.  I really need to hear Dan’s side better.  They were taking pictures with Ross’s phone but it did not survive the water so we have no picture of the during.  Barbara’s aunt did take pictures – a few before and some of after.
