Friday Daydreamin': Riding the Bull

Yay!  It's Friday and it's a 3 Day weekend!!!  Double YAY!!  So, I'm ready to enjoy my Friday morning with a little blog hopping .....Friday Daydreamin, here we come!




4 summers ago, Matt & I were blessed to go on a trip with a group of friends....from work......but that doesn't matter, they were all great friends.  We went for a few days to Jackson Hole, WY in August.  It was the perfect place to escape Texas heat.  We hiked, saw wildlife, ate amazing food, laughed until our sides hurt, and took this little adventure.  

Whitewater rafting.  AHHHH!  So excited.  It was a blast and these were pretty tame rapids.  We all squeezed our big bodies into these tiny wet suits and braved the freezing cold water.  Brandon was brave enough to sit at the front, called "riding the bull" for this set of rapids.  What happened next is what kept us in stitches all weekend.

One of our friends (who will remain nameless.....Karen..) actually fell out right after this picture was taken. 

And the great thing?  The photographer caught it all........


Check out her hubby's look of concern......he was worried about the hat being lost - forget poor Karen who was underneath the boat in freezing cold water......"where's my Cowboys hat?????"

Such a fun trip!  Would go back with all these awesome folks in a heartbeat!

Join up for Friday Daydreamin' and tell us about your favorite vacation picture.  Help make this meme a success!!!

My inlaws have the SAME exact set of photos on their wall in their family room....only insert their faces. :) I always am jealous! I wanna do that!

HA! Love how you totally outted Karen, lol! :) Those are some great photos. I cannot do the whitewater rafting. I'm too chicken. Once when I was about 19 I almost drowned in a river when our raft capsized. I'm pretty much deathly afraid of bodies of water ;)

It gives me chills just thinking about being out there. And was it scary when {Karen} fell overboard? Did it take long to get her back? OMG. I would have panicked for sure.

Great pics though! Looks like sooo much fun!

I really want to visit Jackson Hole, WY. It looks so pretty there. Wow, ok I was scared just sea kayaking when the water was calm. I can't even imagine going down those gnarly rapids!!

Love that the photographer captured it. How cool! Well, maybe not so great for your friend, but still, the experience must have been awesome!

I'm afraid to go whitewater rafting for fear of falling out of the boat. Now I know where there's photographic evidence that it can happen the next time someone tells me not to worry that nobody ever falls out! :)
