White Water Williamsons

We just spent the weekend in Montana celebrating David's Dad's 70th birthday with a white water rafting trip in Glacier National Park. Without a doubt, this is EXACTLY how I hope to celebrate when I become a septuagenarian. Eleven Williamsons rode the waves, paddled vigorously, and conquered the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Our fearless guide, Jordan, led us confidently while sharing interesting bits of history and geology all along the way, making the adventure both thrilling and educational.

In my opinion, this was the birthday party to beat all birthday parties--Chuck E. Cheese eat your heart out! And it couldn't have been in honor of a better man. My father-in-law, Len, has a huge heart, a wealth of wisdom, and a generosity of spirit. He can be both deeply thoughtful and wildly daring all in the course of a single afternoon. He lives his life with integrity, but even more inspiring is his ever-growing joy in Jesus. Thanks, Len, for letting us celebrate with you! Can't wait to see what you do for your 80th. Bungee jumping anyone?
