This is us, playing in the woods and creek... lots of fun even for the dogs. Laela would splash through anything and found a reason to swim the two feet deep places. Bear, with his bum leg, prefered to pick out the shallower spots.
As you can see, I was feeling the 10 year old in me so I just hiked up my skirt and headed into the water. In some places it's deeper than my boots are tall but for the most part I can wade it from one end of our property to the other by keeping to the edges. We each had our own approach. Mindie had sporty striped boots of mine that she borrowed, I had lovely olive green barn boots, and Steph chose the submersible sandal. Walking sticks are optional.
Best. Mother's. Day. Ever.
