Trip on the Salmon

So, Steve and I had the chance to go with Action Whitewater on a 5 day raft trip on the Salmon River in Idaho. Steve worked and took great photos, I just don't have any of them. So, for now, you get to see a few from my little camera. Here's the link to our Flickr page:

Hopefully, I can get some of Steve's picks on there as well, so you can really see the beauty of the area we were in.

We had a great time. We hit some fun rapids. I was the only person who fell out of the raft (or the ducky) into the river during a rapid. I had fun, though; no better way to see the rapids than to swim them (when they're not too big). Our guides were awesome and we had a great time with them, being some of the "guide friends." That means we got the special treatment we liked, being able to help out when we wanted to, or being able to chill and be guests at other times. It was great. Steve arranged it as a birthday/graduation present for me. Sweet!

Newest of the Wiggling Walters

No, not a baby. But pretty darn close. Meet Keene, our newest family member. He came to us yesterday, August 22nd. He is 8 weeks old and came to live with us from another family with little kids. He is a gift for my upcoming 30th birthday and my recent graduation from grad school. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Keene is a Yellow Lab, but he's got a cute brown nose and some white on his belly and shoulders.

We will definitely get better pictures soon (that's Steve's job). I'll also post some photos from our Salmon River rafting trip, too.

blogging rebirth

I don't have a lot of time to post right now, but I think I've made it. I think I'm all done with school (waiting for one more grade to be posted). If I pass, I'm done with school!!!! Also means that I can start posting more.

Tomorrow, Steve and I are off to Salmon, Idaho, for a 5-day rafting trip. I'll put up some pictures when we get back.

Anyway, it's good to be back to blog.
