More Mother's Day Fun

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.

That looks like sooo much fun! It reminds me of when I was a kid.. my brother and I would spend hours and hours down at the stream that flowed across the back of our property. I thought everyone had streams that ran across their property, but sadly now I know better. I'm glad you have one♥

Are you still up for a get together, my dear? I am planning on coming down to my parents house for a few days towards the end of this month/very beginning of next. I really really really would love to meet you girls.... can you fit me in? (she asked hopefully;-})

My brother and I too spent many happy hours playing in a creek near our home (though not on our property). I'm glad we have one, too!

And I'm absolutely still up for a get together. I'm counting on it, really. Don't know if you saw a post I made a time or two back but I might have some things that belong to you. If you like them, that is. :)
