a day at the creek

     My Aunt invited us yesterday to join them (aunt, uncle, cousin, and her family) today for a trip to the creek. We sprayed on the sunscreen and packed up a picnic lunch then enjoyed a few hours at a nearby national park.

     The boys caught bugs and fish, built with branches, and pretended to be creek monsters.

     I relaxed and stared at the clouds.

     I wonder if the kids will remember my Uncle's chair breaking the way I remember a Great Aunt's bed that broke during one of my childhood vacations.

     The girls enjoyed swimming in the creek, too.


  1. Looks like so much fun! These are memories made for a life time...God bless

  2. Stopping by TOS Crew. Looks like a wonderful time at the creek. I think we'll probably go next week.

    I'm going to add your blog to my sidebar so I can keep up with your new posts.

    God bless!
