Five Float Trip Faves

Another weekend, another adventure.

This weekend we are headed to Missouri for Matt's annual AGR Float Trip!  As soon as work is over, we're beating feet to join up with our college pals for a couple days of fun.  And for today's link-up, I'm highlighting some of my favorite parts about this trip...

The Crew.  Once upon a time, I saw many of the people who attend the float trip no less than 5 or 6 days a week.  It may have been in class or at a fraternity/sorority function or it could have very well been at the bar... but sadly, those days are long gone! 

Which brings me to my next point. Playing Catch Up.  A good portion of this evening we will spend sitting in lawn chairs around a bonfire figuring out all the who, what and where's of life in the last year since we've all seen each other.  In the early years it was dominated with wedding details and first jobs, but we're progressing to stories of buying houses and first, second (or in some cases), third kids.  Gracious, things have changed. 

Our host, lovingly referred to as Crazy Legs, and his wife also do a spectacular job feeding everyone all weekend long.  Crazy Legs, yes an old college nickname, is a grill/smoker connoisseur and never disappoints in The Eats department.  My mouth is watering just thinking about pork barbecue!

Hands down, my favorite part of the whole weekend is all the Reminiscing that goes on.  No matter how many years post college we are, as the drinks begin to flow... so will the stories from our college days.  These stories are old, tired and should probably be laid to rest, but there is no doubt in my mind we will talk about the fun times we had dancing at Fred's Dance Barn, partying in the basement of the AGR house and the general college craziness which includes stories of fraternity streaking!

And the actual, physical Float Trip is pretty fun too!

How are you spending your weekend??

Linking up with Karli, Amy and Amanda


  1. Ahhhhhh! This sounds so fun! Isn't it funny how when you get together with your old college crew, you literally feel like nothing has changed....until the hangover hits and you realize you indeed are a little older than you used to be! Haha. Have so much fun! Take lots of pics! Can't wait to see/read about it!

  2. oh my goodness I love this so much! We use to do one (this weekend actually!) of every year with canoes, floats, coolers, etc! How fun! Hope you have a great weekend!! xoxo

  3. Hope you have a great weekend!! Sounds like it will be very fun!

  4. This looks/sounds like so much fun! I'm jealous! Lol. We have done a river trip every year for the last 4 years except this year we weren't able to! Have a great time!

  5. Catching up with old friends really is the best-- especially when you can catch up with old friends from college- I'm sure you guys have some great memories together! I hope you have a blast on the float trip!

  6. Looks like so much fun. I think it's time to ditch the kids and do this soon.
    Thanks for linking up! :)
