4th of July Leakey Style

For the 4th of July weekend we joined our friends Tim and Kelli and many others in Leakey, Texas for the July Jubilee.  This was our first trip to Leakey and I’m sure it will not be our last.  Kelli is from Leakey and still has family there who have an amazing piece of property on the Frio.  We’ve had a very wet past few weeks and we were not going to let a little (ok a lot) of rain stop us.  We took chairs to the river and sat under the “tallest tree in the land” for hours and watched folks jump off of the ”cliff” into the water which was hours of entertainment.  Sterling decided to do his signature jump off of the cliff called the Parachute but it was quickly referred to as the “Bear Hug” which you can see below and see what you think.  There was also a kid name Charlie who was about 11 who was not so sure about jumping off and everyone started chanting “Charlie, Charlie, Charlie” until he jumped so for the rest of the weekend whenever we wanted someone to do something we would chant “Charlie, Charlie, Charlie”….ahh good times!  The weather did let up enough on Sunday for us to float the Frio River and then head back to the swimming hole for some more jumping and hanging out.  We thank Bobby for introducing us to the “Jigger Trigger” aka ”Old Faithful” which is a portable and river friendly shot maker.  You squeeze it and then take the shot from the shot glass on top: www.squeezeashot.com to see it.  Don’t worry I’ve already emailed them for one :)
