Saturday 8/29/09

My cousin had asked me last week if we would like to join them on a hike and swim.Of course me being me I said we would love to.So we talked it over and had planned on meeting at 12:00pm sharp today at the cemetary where our grandparents are buried.So I wake up at 9:30am and then I drag around waiting for that last second to arrive so I can get me and the kids ready.Well guess what it must be in our blood because I was 30 minutes late and as I turned onto the last stretch of road there she sat waiting to pull out.HAHA me and my 70mph made me get there first {I really dislike being last}.So we get out and we walk down to the graveside and we stand there remembering the good times in the {old} day's.Then we loaded up the kiddos and headed back to the trails.It was so peaceful except the ticks.I do not like ticks at all and when they are just seedlings they are even worse.So out came the bug repelent and then we were all good or would have been all good if we would have remembered it on the first trail.It's ok because it was still a wonderful day.I love this picture of Donald and Kaden.I'm not sure what they were doing but Kaden was mighty proud to be sitting by his daddy. This would be Sarah.Do you notice she has her camara ready?And do you see that stick under her arm?Trust me everyone behaved when she was around.
Taylor,Erin,Leydia,and Kaden.They was searching the murky water for crawdads.They did manage to catch some plus some minnows and tadpoles.

I'm not sure what they was trying to catch but it could have been a frog.Every time I turned around someone had a new frog.

This is all the kids sitting on the log benches along the path.Kaden,Brenten,Taylor,Justin,Ashley,Erin,Leydia,& Kelsey.

This tree was very popular even though they couldn't do anything but stand on it.There was a little puddle of yucky knee deep water below it.Here Leydia and Kaden models on it.

And then Justin took his turn.

And of course Donald had to take his turn because he is just a big over grown kid.

A crawdad Brenten caught.We turned him loose before leaving.

Way to go honey!!!!He told me if he held it out away from him it would look bigger lol.Sorry Donald it didn't work.

Miss Ashley stopped long enough to get her picture taken.

And that was my wonderful Saturday.I hope yours was just as great.Let's take this time to say a prayer for all the sicklings out there.I know my kids have had the crud here lately and one of my blogger buddies and her kiddos haven't been feeling well.
