I graduated from the University of Alabama in Huntsville on Saturday morning 8/13/2011. It was such a proud moment and it took a lot of hard work and determination to get there!!
To celebrate this momentous occasion my family took me white water rafting down the Ocoee River in Tennessee. It has to be some of the most fun you can have with your clothes on!! I had a blast, got soaked, and wanted to go back again the minute it was over. Here are some pictures from my trip.
That's my daughter Natasha on the front of the raft.... ridin' the bull!! She had so much fun doing that. You can see the sheer jubilation on her face lol!!

The white water rafting looks like so much fun! I went once, years ago, down in New Mexico, and have always wanted to do it again. Seeing all of your pictures and how much fun you all were having reminded me of our trip--I'm going to have to look into that again!! 2010 days ago
Congrats on your graduation! Rafting looks like so much fun. I went tubing down a crazy river in PA with my hubby and older son when was 11 and it was fun! Maybe we will have to try rafting with the little guy in a couple years especially now that I'm much thinner. It's amazing what you're willing to do when you look and feel so good.
Looks like you had fun! My hubby (before me) used to go to Albright, West Virginia. Then we went two times, he rafted and I made camp. Then for 2 years we went to the tow path in Brunswick Maryland. He went canoeing and I made camp. 2014 days ago
