The river was one of our favorites places to go and get away from the heat. It’s not really much of a river though. When it rains it’s more like a flash flood, roaring over the banks and though all the brush. But then after a few days, it’s back to more like a stream. Eric has heard that some of the water that runs through this particular stream is contaminated. However, we didn’t know this for months as we swam in it. No one ever got sick after we swan there. So I always just remind the children to swim with there mouths closed and no drinking the water. The temperature was not that warm, maybe low 70’s, but that did not stop my boys. Or Maryann. But my other 2 girls hung out by me in the sand and played. And no one got sick this time either.
A ball the boys found in the brush.
Drawing in the sand
wishing she could get out and play
a huge log Ben found.
It was bigger than him.
Maryann is right behind the boys when it comes to playing in the water.
We started out with just a diaper and progressive to a naked little boy.
I laid her down near Laura. When I looked down at here, this is what she had found!
Guess she had been tasting it to.
The boys worked on a bridge to get Laura to the other side of the stream.
the water seemed to dance with sparkles
part 4- the biggest ball ever/fun with friends.
