it's Schmoopie, The Monkey, Remy & The Tiny.
Guys, wave and say hi!
Aren't they cute, y'all?
Here's my Donny, fishing with an "old fashioned pole."
They also have jean shorts on so
that they won't wear out their bathing suits when they don't use the raft.
Aren't they adorable?
One lives in Houston, the other in California.
But, when they get together, you'd think they were long lost sisters.
Here come some more cousins. They try to pile as many on a raft as they can. The most I've seen at once is four, maybe five. Here is Miss Thang, Remy & The Tiny.
Oh, I forgot to tell you, at the bottom of the flume, the kids have to save themselves from the strong current and then walk over slippery algae covered rocks to get to the shore. It's tough, but they love it. They scream and are dramatic about it, but they have a blast.
This inner tube is tied to a rope, that is tied to the railing where they come out of the water.
Coming down the flume, they search for this rope and inner tube, and grab it for all its worth.
They live in fear of being caught in the current and sent downstream...
where someone might have told them there are snakes. hehe Not me. Nope.
Everyone shares floats and inner tubes and noodles here.
We're friendly that way, y'all.
wait, that's not fishing, fluming or fighting...
how'd that get in there? Ooops. onward...
It's fun fighting. OUt in the middle of the deep part of the river is a buoy.
The kids get on it and play "king of the hill." You know, last one standing wins.
Here's Wonderboy, Bunny, Schmoopie and Sweet Cheeks showing just how it's done.
Wonderboy has plans to put her in though, I can see it.
See what I mean, the girls gang up on the boys. And the boys get them back later. You can tell when you hear a lot of screaming. I think I might have lost some hearing from their screaming.
Look at those stinkers. I think they're trying to talk down Sweet Cheeks. She looks mad. She was the youngest cousin on this trip, she's the youngest of them all. She and Bunny. They were inseperable the whole trip and you had to watch out for them. They were up to something, always. Adorable little stinkers.
Well, this post is long enough, so I'll stop...for now. I haven't shown you the other things we did yet. Don't worry, I'll post about them soon. I know you wait with baited breath. hehe
