rolling on the river

Loaded up on the Island Queen riverboat for a ride on the Mississippi River.

Carly enjoying the ride and Miss MM worried about us either hitting the bridge and sinking, sinking and getting eaten by the 110 pound catfish, or sinking and getting attacked by the bullshark, or maybe just sinking.

I was wishing I had brought more than my little point and shoot camera. It's grainy, washed out and we're windblown but at least documentation that I was there. Carly and her two friends Miss MM and Miss C at Mud Island with the 240 bridge in the background. We kidnapped Miss MM for the day from her class so she she could spend the day with us. We should have swiped her a red shirt too!
Walking the entire length of the Mississippi River {well just the model}
from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico.

A GREAT DAY...PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST PHOTOS OF YOU AND CARLY TOGETHER, GRAINY AND ALL. SO GLAD YOU CAN MAKE THESE TRIPS WITH HER.

What a cool field trip, and it's so fun that you brought Miss MM along with you. The self-portrait of you and Carly is beautiful!
