Parker River Float

What a joke. If you ever get invited to a river float in Parker, Arizona and are not a big partier, say no. That is of course unless you enjoy beer bongs and keg stands at 8am, obliterated drunk bros & hoes, people fondling each other inappropriately in plain sight, and being in the direct 111 degree sunlight for 8 hours with nowhere to go but in the water, or on your little raft. Yes, it took us 8 hours to float down the river. There were thousands of people there and I literally felt like the only sober one. I can barely handle a glass of wine at 8pm (ok, slight exaggeration here) let alone beer or anything alocoholic at 8am. I reapplied sunscreen at least 3-4 times and still got roasty toasty burnt. The icing on the cake was sleeping on a shitty spring cot that poked my sunburn all night and being covered with a ton of itchy mosquito bites - fantastic! Never again.
My favorite part of the trip was swimming in the amazing indoor pool and going down this fun water slide!

On the bright side, I did get to spend time with good friends and I won almost $300 on the Wheel of Fortune slot machine!! woohoo! I also got to wear my new favorite large brimmed hat...

...and enjoyed the gorgeous Arizona sunset.

I wish I had more pictures to share with you, but the rest are on a water proof camera that I need to get developed. However did we live before digital cameras?!
How was your weekend?

  2. No beer at 8 a.m.? On most days I'm on my 2nd bottle by then. --- Just kidding. Bright blessings!
