Fun on the river
(Above photo) Sophie Denison, 6, (left) and her brother Theo, 2, ride the rapids Wednesday at the Siloam Springs Kayak Park on the Illinois River about 4 miles south of town. The children were at the river with their parents Michael and Megan Denison of Siloam Springs. With temperatures in the mid-90s this week, Northwest Arkansas swimming holes are popular for beating the heat.

Chiang was planning on spending the day fishing on the river.
