Matt, my friend from work, is in charge of the Friends of Sugar Creek association. They organized a canoe trip and we went along.
Aleah is there too, she crouched down behind Emily holding on to the gunwhale. She was a little freaked out the whole time and wouldn't let go or relax, although she did fall asleep, whiteknuckled and kneeling in the water.
We saw a bald eagles nest with two juvenile bald eagles. We looked for fossils and shells along the sandbar during lunch. Just a nice stressfree trip.
I have a strip of sunburn on each knee though because I put sunscreen on while standing up, but sitting in the boat my shorts rode up some. Aleah has a little strip on her back where the sun hit while she was hunkered down.
Pictures thanks to Matt.
