Typically I spend my birthday whistling nonchalantly and pretending I don’t know what day it is. Well, that’s what I’ve been doing for the past four or five years anyway. That wasn’t the case this year. This year I decided I wanted to start off the home stretch of my thirties with a big splash.
At the Wedgewood Lodge we work with Performance Tours and they give our guests a discount. I contacted Kevin to book our trip and then spent the following two weeks riling my children into a feverish frenzy of excitement. Because how else do you think Moms have fun?
On the big day, we headed down to Buena Vista. We were due to take the Mild & Scenic trip since I love my little ones thrilled but safe. The staff at Performance Tours suited us up appropriately, we loaded onto a shuttle and were off to start our adventure.
Our raft guide, Addy, was a darling. And I wouldn’t dare arm wrestle her. Just sayin’. The trip was an absolute blast. But, verbose and lover of the mighty word as I am, I will admit there are times when a picture is worth a thousand words. So I will share some of those with you…
All told we had an amazing time. The Performance Tours staff is just lovely. They’re engaging and funny and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this trip for a family. And it is so much easier to do so enthusiastically now that I’ve experienced it! I especially encourage families with younger children (but they must be four and over 30 pounds) to spend a day on the water! Why? Well, here again I will let a picture speak a thousand words.
Oh, and in the middle of my two children…my other birthday present. The kids named her Mombie.
Happy (My) Birthday to all, and to all a good night!
