OH! What Fun It Is To Ride... A Hydro Bike

Yesterday, my Hubby and I planned to go rafting. We meet Paul and Darcie, Matt and Tishauna, James and Emily, and Jonathan and DeAnna, at our house. We all loaded up in our Excursion and Paul and Darcies Suburban. As we were getting ready to pull out, Cam called the American River Raft Rental to reserve a raft. We were all so disappointed to find out we were 24 min late. We would not be able to raft. Seeing that we were all ready and excited about our Adventure Date, we were NOT going to let this stop us from having fun. We put our heads together and devised another plan. We loaded back into the SUV's and headed to Sacramento University Aquatic Center. Once there, we rented kayaks and Darcie and I rented hydro bikes. What a MAJOR blast!!! The workout was incredible. Paul and Cameron shared a kayak. As the men approached James and Emily, they gave them a "shower". James, coming to his beautiful wife's defense, abandon his kayak and dove onto Paul and Cameron's. It was two men overboard. Three if you include James in the water. War was on!!! Me being the TRUE friend that I am, came to James rescue. I let him step on my Hydro bike that is "untipable" to get back into his kayak. James being the clown that he is, tried tipping me over. He almost accomplished his task until I blurted out a reminder. Everyone's cell phones and wallets were on my bike. THANK GOD!!!!! Darcie however wasn't so lucky. Her bike went completely head over heels. Thanks to.... James :). Matt and Tishauna played it safe and stay far away. When they did get close, James was up to no good again. Good thing Tishauna had her cell ph in her pocket, it saved her too. Jonathan and DeAnna didn't get tipped, but the did get drenched. Jonathan did dive off the outhouse boat into the "ol' dooky water" LOL. Yes, there was an outhouse in the middle of the lake. We all just wondered were the "stuff" gets dumped. YUCK!!!!
After this fun adventure, we all came together at our house for a BBQ. Adyn and Janelle joined us along with all 20 of our kids. Sharaya brought over about 8 more friends for games and dessert. Thank God we have a large home. HAHAHA What a party it was. Cant wait until next time.

So much fun! Those two sisters are quite a riot...
For the record, Cameron started the whole water war! :)
