It was a beautiful morning! We emerged from our tent, ate a hearty breakfast, and looked forward to a half day of white water rafting.
Since our children were not old enough to take on the daring rapids we settled for the half day scenic adventure and it did not disappoint us.
We put on our wet suits, helmet, and life jacket ready to go down the kicking horse.
Our guide took us down the white water the children laughed over the bumps and helped row with all of their heart’s content.
We stopped to scale a fresh water stream coming down the cliffs and discovered our kids were mountain goats three steps ahead of the crowd. It was at moments I gasped in fear that they might slip and fall! But they ceased to amaze me with their agility and strength.
The end of our journey the children looked on at the Kicking Horse wishing they were still on that raft. They wanted to explore the rest of the river and thought of the excitement of being thrown from the raft into the raging white water. It is at that moment you could see their imaginations take flight wanting something more – wanting to be fearless without the consequences.
It was on this small journey down the raft in which fond memories were made and I hope that one day we will do it again. I look forward to the day our young boys are men and we can take the white rapids head on with a little more excitement!
