The River

Drove up, up, up the nearest mountain to find some fun.  photo 073eresized_zps3276389d.jpg

The weather was perfect, the kids were happy. Life was just about perfect.  photo 075eresized_zps3a213e3b.jpg

We didn’t expect to play in the river, we were going more for just an exploratory drive but we couldn’t resist. I told the kids to just walk in the water but not to get their clothes wet since we had nothing to dry us all off.  photo 078eresized_zpsaa63aee2.jpg photo 080eresized_zps17c87311.jpg photo 083eresized_zpsbed4d3ba.jpg

Oh and yes, my kids (mostly Brooke and Sierra) spent most of their summer in pajamas.  photo 087eresized_zps73c2ee2e.jpg photo 090eresized_zpsb7e17529.jpg photo 091eresized_zps8aeb17bf.jpg

Brooke came up with a fun game called, let your shoe float down the river reeeeeeally far until you think you can just about catch it before it floats away forever.

At one point Payson tripped and fell completely into the water. Since he was already soaked I let him practice swimming around and he was hilariously adorable while doing so.  photo 252eresized_zpsdfc51e7e.jpg photo 256eresized_zpsa4bdb518.jpg photo 271eresized_zps535b4ac9.jpg
