Our friends rented a house on the Russian River, just outside of Guerneville, CA for a week. Over the Fourth of July weekend we joined them for barbecues, beer, river swimming, kayaking, bubbles, watermelon, water balloons we filled but had no time to toss, and more river swimming. There was an innertube, for Emily to cruise on down the river. There was also a hammock, for me to cruise on down to Relaxation Town.
With the trip to the Pacific Northwest last week, and now the Russian River, we’ve already packed more “summer” into the first two weeks of this summer than we ever have before.
Life does not suck.
