Me and Lucy trekking on up to the lake.
Lucy playing with worms - she was so interested in them. Mainly interested in pulling them apart. Awesome.
Since the boys learned to cast, this was a perfect opportunity for them to apply it! Fishing was much more fun for them, for sure. Jonas and Miles both did great in casting. It was just too adorable watching them.
Lunch time! And, if our batteries didn't die I would have gotten pictures of:
Emmy literally getting stuck in the mud.
The one and only fish caught on Emmy's line. A pretty big and beautiful rainbow trout. Not your typical stocked-trout.
The boys out on the rocks in the lake.
Wilson dragging around his leash.
All the kids getting soaked in their jeans, up to their mid-thighs, playing in the lake.
Lucy, Lucy, and more Lucy.
Jonas and his skinny 'n' white bare legs "jogging" on the trail back home (his soaked jeans were causing some extreme discomfort, especially on some foot-wound he had gotten earlier. so we took of his pants and wow! did he become happy again. and the cutest 1/2 naked hiker in the whole entire world.)
The 3 kids eating cookie-dough ice-cream from a small-town local store on our way home.
A perfect way to end a delightful day.
