We are planning on going camping/floating in a couple weeks and I can't decide where to go. I think a slow river would be best, and also a raft would safer and more conducive to floating with a toddler. However, I remember taking a raft one time on a floating trip when I was a kid. My brother, my two cousins, and I were in it and it was soooooooooooooooooo slow. The rest of our families (in canoes) reached the end point hours before us, and by the time we arrived we were practically ready to drown each other and ourselves out of sheer frustration over a way-too-long day on the river. So, to avoid that this time, maybe we should choose a faster river? I don't know.

Working on the log cabin quilt has inspired me to knit more blankets. I got a great book, 200 Knitted Blocks, from the library and it's definitely going on my must-buy list. Right now I have four blankets on the needles. If only there were more hours in a day, I might ever actually finish one of them.

I remember wonderful experiences on the canoes, but don't have as many fond recollections of rafts. I think a good plan would be to take the canoe because they are way more awesome, and make the trip on the river be long so you won't get to the end in only a couple of hours.

Take a canoe and float the Current River down around Salem. Its a
nice float if you go from Baptist Camp to Acres Ferry. Or can go from Acres to Round Springs.This last one is a slower trip.
We have taken children and Sr. adults on Current and all enjoyed it.
Have safe trip.

I just love the darling saying "on the needles"!
I think we started canoeing when Peter was only two years old. Our CFM friends still laugh about the funny experience of him bouncing along underneath the raft and surviving!
