Return to the river


Oh glorious Sunday, you were so good to us!

The temps reached into the high 70's yesterday and as soon as we came home from church and ate lunch we headed down the trail at the back of our property to the river for an afternoon of play.

Blake, Cooper, Kendall, and cousin Maddy.
Of course, play is a relative word because to Russell that meant bringing down his mower with a trailer attached to haul all sorts of manly tools so he could clear trails and get rid of unwanted brush. He was completely in his element. 

And so was I!

 These girls are over a year apart in age but they are two peas in a pod! 

 The kids caught salamanders...

explored and played all sorts of imaginary games, 
and got incredibly dirty.


Because the weather was still so warm when we came back up to the house the kids all put their suits on and soaped up the trampoline with the sprinkler underneath.

It felt just like summer. 

And to top it all off, my tulips opened :)

Thank you, Sunday. You were perfect.


  1. MMMmmmm-yummy day and pictures

  2. Looks like a spended afternoon indeed, but I'm a little dissapointed there were no pictures of Russell with his Weed Wacker:-)

  3. Sorry you missed that bit of manliness, Tim... I was just too comfy to move from my spot and only took pictures from where I was sitting :)

  4. Fun! The salamanders are a little creepy though! I don't know if I'd have been brave enough to pick one up! :O
