I told you yesterday that I would share with you something fun and different that my sister-in-law Debbie wanted to do for her birthday. We went whitewater rafting! On the Catawba River here in Charlotte, we have the new US National Whitewater Center.
It is the world's largest artificial whitewater river and an official U.S. Olympic Training Site! I have been whitewater rafting several times in the mountains before, but never at this center.
It was so much fun! Our guide was extremely energetic...seriously bouncing off the walls with energy. He made the whole experience even more fun and entertaining! Laura and Lindy were a little scared at first, but they ended up really liking it! We saw lots of people get thrown off their rafts and start heading down the currents, but none of us ever fell off and we had a great time!
I just wanted to share a couple of our pictures with you. I thought it was definitely a unique way to celebrate a 50th birthday!
Have you ever gone whitewater rafting?
