We got to float the Provo (river) this weekend after wanting to do it for like two weeks. It was SO fun! The water was FREEZING and a lot deeper than we thought, but we loved it! Thanks to Howard for reminding us to bring life jackets, no one else really had them and probably thought we were nerds, but I was glad we had them because the current was actually pretty strong and with all the snow we had this year the river was much deeper than I remember. 

Garret and I kept trying to hold on to each others tubes but it would just spin us backward or he would spin me too close the bank and it freaked me out so we kept having to try to catch up to each other. I hit some little rapids and managed to totally nail my tush on a rock (rapids=rocks) despite my efforts to hold my bum out of the tube. Garret just laughed at me...classic. 

After we got out we went to my car so we could drive it up to the top where Garret's car was and where we had got in. Well we had just taken my key because, obviously, my keyless entry would have been ruined in the water. I unlocked the passenger door with the key to get something and my freaking car alarm goes off! I have never even heard it before and me unlocking it with  a KEY sets the stupid thing off. I got in the car and tried everything to get it to stop but it wouldn't finally we just had to lock it all up and walk back to the park. It finally stopped but we had to wait a while for Garret's bro to show up to take us up to the top. 

Well of course, Garret's brother Wade loves to make people...uncomfortable... in a sense to get a kick out of it and he had his friend in his front seat and then their families two big sheep herding dogs in the back!!! I was just slightly bugged, but it was pretty funny. I felt a little better about it when I saw they had slobbered all over the car and that their hair was everywhere. Serves him right! haha. 

We barely made dinner with our buddies at our favorite Little Italy and enjoyed the rest of the night with them. It was a good weekend that was over WAY WAY too fast.
