It is so hard to plan a vacation when you have a large family that ranges from age 9- adult. Surprisingly the majority vote for vacation this year was a float trip. Luckily a new friend has a cabin on the Caddo River and so we booked it and it was the easiest thing every.
We have friends nearby so they came over for supper one evening, we spent one afternoon floating, and the rest of the time swimming in the river and hanging out in the very beautiful outdoor space at the cabin.
Even though we picked the hottest weekend of the entire summer, the river was low, and my phone got a bit of water damage and may never recover, I think everyone had a pretty good time. High points: it was close to home, the accommodations were beautiful and comfortable, and getting to see friends made it even more special.
