♥♥Father's Day♥♥ (Part II)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day! We spent it with some of my family
at a beautiful spot we found recently near Sonora. It is right next to the river, and the
kids had a great time splashing around in the ice-cold water.The following pictures 
are actually of the first time we went there, because we were having too much fun to 
snap pics this time! Daddy didn't go that time, so he's not in these pics...of where we
went on Father's Day. Irony, anyone?
Even though it was colder this time, and the water had gone up greatly as well, 
I had to get in. I'm glad I did--floating on my back in the middle of the river, surrounded
 by shade (but with the sun gleaming through the trees), I felt so peaceful. It was heavenly.


I feel so lucky to live in an area where a short car trip yields such gorgeous scenery :)

The kids, of course, had a blast in the water...

What's a trip to the river without some rock throwing? Thanks to
Jakey, we'll never know the answer to such a fate.

Of course, Liam wasn't about to miss an opportunity to
sunbathe. He suns those chubby thighs any chance he gets.

My sis. Did I mention she is soooo much like Martha Stewart? She's SO good at
crafting, decorating, cooking, baking...very talented to say the least!

Every time I look at this pic, I think of a group of mermaids sunning themselves ;)

My beautiful mom.

I took this shot as my nephew, Kalyn, geared up to skip stones.
I loved that it looked like he was ready to go flying.

Miss Addie, my sweet little chica. 

There were so many things to do and see, to those kiddos. At one point, one of the
native inhabitants decided to pay us an up-close-and-personal visit.

Do you remember that from childhood....the wonder and awe over a ladybug,
and watching them trail all over you?

She (Miss Ladybug) was fascinated with my ring. So I decided just to let her inspect it a while.

Crazy huh?

It was so much fun. Next time it's a mommy/daddy only visit,
so we can both swim and veg as we please!

Sounds like fun!

We go up to Oregon every year, too...just love it there....was all set to move there til I found out I was pregnant...decided to stay near the family instead:)

Have a wonderful time!

Just wanted you to know that I sent the review for the Kinder-Glo Lite to your poetees email address...not sure if that one is your primary any longer. If you didn't get it, let me know where else you'd like me to send it :o)

My best to you and yours,
