This weekend we went on an adventure to the Whitewater Preserve. We had heard others talk about it, but had never ventured there for ourselves. Unfortunately for me once you get off the interstate you have to drive down a curvy road for several miles. Luckily for both Papa Z and me I didn't get carsick, but was dizzy and felt like I was staggering around for a little while. Once we stopped we all jumped out and started exploring the area.
The highlight of the trip was playing in the river. We had to walk a long way, but we finally found an area without rapids that would take out the children. After the initial shock of feeling wet cold squishy mud between their toes passed, the kids were happily splashing and playing in the river. Zany Janie even learned how to pee in the wilderness. I'm hoping she doesn't decide to try it at our pool this summer!
Overall, it was a great experience and I'm sure we will be back to visit again soon. Maybe next time if we come across a nasty rattlesnake, a bighorn sheep will gallop down a sheer cliff and come to our rescue! Maybe, but I doubt it!
