Who’s up for canoeing in the backyard?

Coombs family turns flooding into fun

They’re making the most of a soggy situation.

PQB News reader Crystal Praddy sent in this pic of her in-laws Ken Neden, Dallas Neden and their grandson Koa Praddy-Neden, having a canoe ride in their own backyard in Coombs, following floods caused by heavy rains this week.

“When it’s flooded they decided to just go with it and have fun with it,” said Praddy.
