I'm pretty sure I'll never be willing to sleep in a tent again.
So, the advantage of bringing preggers along is that you always have a photographer! Here they are at the rapid known as Lunch Counter. Pretty intense. You'll be surprised to know that Ashleigh (in the back of the boat) actually stayed in the boat. I think she was completely submerged!
And here are all the happy campers at the end of their ride. They said the water was really cold, so that made me feel a lot better about sitting on the sidelines.
On Saturday we rented a boat and rode around Jackson Lake. We also stopped and had delicious pizza for lunch. It was beautiful and pregnant-friendly. Just try to ignore the fact that I was swelling up like a balloon at this point. The hot weather really did a number on me, but you'll be happy to know that the swelling has since gone down (like anyone cares but me). I strategically cropped my ankles & feet out of all pictures. Not a pretty sight. The scenery on the other hand was gorgeous!
Chad was really getting the full experience
On the way back we stopped at Jenny Lake, which was equally beautiful. I also soaked my balloon feet in the freezing cold water and it felt amazing. Sorry for all the prego references, I guess it basically consumes my life right now.
And I'm super excited to say that we actually saw some wildlife! I feel like I'm totally jinxed in this department because I never see wildlife, but we were on a roll this year.
You can't see him very well, but that brown thing in the trees is a bear.
And then a few minutes later we saw a moose with her calf. It was awesome - nature at it's best!
So, that was our trip. And once again I have camping checked off of my list for another year. Yipee!
