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.

Zube and the little Zubes and Z Boyfriend…


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…

Ooh, beautimous!

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.

Nap Time.

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!
