This first set of pictures is from scrambling around at Boy Scout Rock near McHugh Creek

A picture from Wood's Romp on Friday,  The snow melt lake.


I can't get the rest to separate out.  Bike ride, picking up trash in the river and then wading after a bike ride.  The feet got red so they had to warm them up when we got home!

 Duke and I went biking in the morning to the lake, but no geese.  We did find many damselfly nymphs and one was carrying another one.  Duke loved realizing that they were 'canabalistic'.  We also saw a wormish, leach creature.  We are bringing our buckets next time to really find some cool things!  Then, we took Pepper out for a romp in the woods.  Duke finally let me take him to the night cache with the skeleton.  He thought it was a bit creepy, but the best part is when you open the actual cache there is a light sensing manically laughing cat.  He loved that.

 Then, just a shot of the boys playing.  Here, Kincaid is reading his invisible journal to spiderman about the enemy they are going to fight.  It said we needed special goggles so Duke is putting his on smartly.

Duke and I biked to a pond and some Geese came to join us!

He told me that this is the stance (hands up and back up slowly) you do if angry animals (Geese) come towards you.  He loved watching them.  They also did some fighting - charging and honking loudly. 

It was a gorgeous day with the sun, blue sky and lack of blizzard!

I remember coming to this playground when it had the old and much more frightening space ship.  Now, the scary part is that I hit my head nearly every time I chase Duke to the top.  Duke was in an unusually good mood and we stayed to play for nearly 2 hours.  The day had bright sun, a brief blizzard and then beautiful sun again.  We had a great time and by the end he was only wearing a long sleeved shirt (I still had on a sweatshirt and raincoat).  I love these good times!

 We had a fun dessert time thanks to Kory.  The boys finished the chocolate frogs soon after the package arrived, but they just tucked into the jelly slugs (super tasty) and the Bert's Every Flavor Jelly Bean.  Those were not so great - I did try the vomit one and it had an odd taste... go figure.

 We had crazy weather today with blizzard weather ALL day!  It never stuck, but it was pretty cool.

 Duke helped Bop with some yard work on Friday.

 Pepper was upset that she couldn't use a rake.  When we come back home after being out, Pepper is often found in the window.  Bad dog.
 Then, she had to rest.

I had a wonderful trail run on Sunday.  It was SUPER windy, but it was hard to tell back in the trees.

 Just some highlights from my day.  Gotta head to bed!
