Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Creek Day with the boys

We had so much fun Saturday! The B. boys came and played with us for most of the day. We took a hike down to the creek. It was a beautiful day. We couldn't have picked a better one. Carter took his bug box and net and we came home with some critters- 2 of which are still alive in my fish tank! But I'll get to that.

We got down to the creek, which wasn't flowing much at all, and Tony, Matt, and Carter got in the water to fishwhile Gage, Owen, and I hung out on the sheet on the bank.

Gage enjoyed pulling leaves off of the weeds around us and Owen was the bug police (BUG!!!!). He was using the bug gun to "shoot" the fish the big boys were catching and the weeds...and the rocks...and his daddy ("DADDAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!!" You crazy!"), and 1 big black ant.

The big boys caught several of the little big-mouth bream that are in our creek, and Carter caught the biggest one of the day! Way to go Carter!
Matt was on crawdad patrol

Then it was time for a little rock- skipping ( or just throwing) and some playing in the water.

("Do it again")

The little boys loved it and I think their daddies had a little fun, too. There's no "dis"ability in these 2 little firecrackers!
And we had to get some family pictures in God's beautiful creation.
(think Gage was tired?)

Then Carter showed us that he's really 1/2 monkey.
Then it was time to go back "up top". The hike back up was longer than the one down. Funny how that happens! I think Owen and Gage weighed 10lbs more with their water-logged diapers than on the way down. We all got back to the house, bathed, de-ticked, and rested for a while. We put the 2 crawdads Matt caught (HUGE) in the fish tank, where they remain active as I type this. We ended the day with a yummy fish fry dinner (although not the ones they caught in the creek!) and the B's went home. It was so refreshing to be outside doing something fun with good friends. I love where we live!
