Sunday Afternoon Walk

We went for a lovely stroll around a local lake today and Dave even braved the path over tree roots and narrow passages with the double stroller!  The kids loved it and found many interesting things.  We saw ducks and inchworms, woodpecker holes, "rare" mushrooms and lava rocks (igneous rocks for a throwback to last year's science unit).  Sundays are pretty cool ever since Dave decided he wouldn't work and we'd do things with the kids instead.
Pictures stink as they are taken with our dirt-old flip phone.

River Day

We spent a really lovely day here at the river close by but the only picture I have is this one:  

Found myself a fairy at the river...

We all went though and even ran into Colton and his brother, friends of ours from up north.  Nathan and David even got to borrow a family's intertubes to swim down the river.  It was a really lovely day and the only one not having the grandest of time, was our poor, spoiled dog.  He is not made for the "rugged" outdoors of pebbles and water...  :-)  But he was a trooper and was happy to hang out although he was not happy we made him go in the water.  The kids had fun finding crawdads, water skippers, little tiny fish and all sorts of other creatures (periwinkles).  This river is perfect because the water does not get too deep and we don't have to worry about anyone drowning, including Hannah.
Another lovely summer day in the books.
