Saturday With My Boys

Tell Your Friends

Our girls had a bridal shower to attend, so after watching Liv participate in her first Color Run, the boys and I packed a cooler, grabbed the dogs, and headed to the woods to find refuge from the blistering heat.  IMG_5685

The dogs were practically bouncing in the back of the van, so we stopped at the first quiet area we found to let them burn off a little bit of nervous energy.  Annie actually SWAM, which she’s been very reluctant to do since we got her a couple of years back.  She plodded into the river without any apparent hesitation.  Jake was even in a pretty good mood, considering our day was pretty open ended and we weren’t going to be home – two things he usually hates.

We settled at Abol Beach for a while to swim, but the two pound horseflies got the best of the kids before too long. Gabe even found a monster sized dragonfly!

Look at the size of that dragonfly!

Have you ever seen anyone have more fun at the beach?

Being of English/Irish descent, we couldn’t stay out all day, so we came home and the boys retreated to the air conditioned house while I read a book on the porch in the shade.  All in all a nice day.  

Pointless post, I realize, but we got some cool photos!
