We had a fun little excursion this past weekend and a walk down memory lane for Chris. There is a ravine near his childhood home where he would play and he has been talking about taking the kids to go stomping in the little creek and search for salamanders and such. Well we decided to do it this past weekend and boy did we have an adventure.
For one the little creek was a major creek as we had a lot of rain fall recently - which meant we were still definitely doing it (you know once you go to all the work to get 3 little ones ready for something like this you don't back down unless you absolutely have to) but we needed to be a bit more strategic in our path. We managed to wind down the sides of the ravine for a ways and then forged across at a passable spot - thanks to Uncle Scott who pretty much carried Shayden, Quinton and then assisted Sutton and me.
The kids had a blast and it was a great memory. I had a slew of awesome pictures except when I uploaded them I realized I had the setting wrong and the majority were blurry and just plain stunk. Total Bummer!
Here is what did turn out...
Take note how wet Uncle Scott is...he was awesome! Here he had just helped the boys cross and is dumping water out of there boots.
We can't wait to go back and do it again.
