I have had a really busy and full day. Too pooped and tired to give the story. But here are some pics. So here is the gist of it. Husband, waterfall, slips, falls into frigid water. I try to help him, I slip and fall flat on my butt. Poor teenage daughter with both arms stretched out-one for her dad and one for me. Who should she save first? Hum, hypothermia? Get Dad out first.

Darren running to the truck to get out of the soon to be frozen clothes. His entire body went down into the base of the waterfall.

It used to be said that my guardian angels took tranquilizers in order to keep up with me. Now, I think we have a team of angels trying to keep up with my family.


  1. Yikes! I am glad ya'll are ok, and had time to snap pictures of the incident, lol. He looks freezing in those wet clothes!! Brrr. Hope the trip was followed up by a warm fire/heater and hot cocoa.
    I am really happy you linked up with the Storytellers Blog Hop. Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Oh my gosh that looks frigid! But it's always fun to get pics of crazy moments like that.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment. I'm so interested to see if my kids will follow their father's footsteps in the military as well. Good luck! Following you back! :)

  3. Holy Moly! You weren't kidding about hypothermia in the last post! Hope everyone's warmed up now!

  4. Oh my Goodness, I got the shivers just looking at the pictures!

  5. I'm going into hypothermia just looking at Darren!! Hope you all had a huge mug of hot chocolate:) Many adventures you all are having!!

  6. holy cow! i'm glad that turned out more entertaining than terrifying. hope no one is the worse for wear.

    thanks for finding me on the blog hop so i could find you, too!

  7. Oh my! That would be frightening to hit that cold water. I can't handle cold anyway.

    You reminded me of a couple posts we had recently about Guardian Angels. Harley has the most qualifications :)

    P.S. We read books, but have other interests as well.
