With this crazy 100+ heat, my boyfriend and I decided that kayaking would be the best way to stay cool and be active this weekend.  Lucky for us, I live less than 3 miles from the Shenandoah River and my family has a few kayaks for when we get an active outdoorsy itch.  So, we threw the kayaks in the back of the truck and headed to the river.  

Though the thermometer said the temps were triple digits, on the water it felt perfect.  We tried to make it to past some small rapids but failed so settled for a little sandy island.  So, we parked the kayaks and just swam in the water for awhile.  It really was relaxing and fun and great to get out of the house and not letting the heat beat our plans.  Also the views were so picturesque.  

If you follow me on twitter or instagram you already (but you totally should; I am pretty entertaining...I think) know my puppy was run over :(  She has a broken leg, fractured foot, and a ton of stitches but is alive and well.  Minus the cone collar hindering her normal cuddling abilities, Roxy is still her sweet self.  So instead of playing with her out in the yard I am keeping her company on the couch while she slowly recovers.  

Other than this sad event, I had a great relaxing weekend finally getting to enjoy nature.  hope you had a great weekend :)
