You Know It’s Been A Successful Day When...

My boys have been on Spring Break all week. Yesterday we took them to their Grampy and Grammy’s house. They live in the country in a cute house surrounded by a spring-fed pond and creek. By our standards, here are just a few of the things that made this a wonderfully successful Spring-break day:

1. Six Ice-E-Pops between the boys, and three pieces of cheesecake for me.

2. Daddy having to kill a snake with a stick because it was trying to bite one of the dogs, and John couldn’t tell if it was poisonous or not. The boys, who were in the house during this time, thought this was totally cool, but John felt very bad about killing a snake.

3. Coming across a dead coyote along the side of the road during a hike. Man, coyotes have very big, very sharp teeth. And they are very, very white teeth. Makes me think I should be chewing on bark rather than Colgate.

4. Watching Luke reel in two fish from the pond, and then begging to let them go.

5. Watching my boys squatted in the creek, three in a line, water up to their knees, happily chatting about whatever popped into their heads while hunting for shiny rocks for our growing collection. Too bad I didn’t have my camera. Plumber's butt at its finest.

My boys would have loved these things as well. Sometimes the best pictures are the ones you keep in your head for memories.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Catching up on some read-time. Sounds like a fun day - just like all the ones we spend at memaw's and papa's - except unfortunately daddy doesn't get to play as big a part in the whole experience as he used to. Reading this actually made my insides hurt a bit. That may have come out the wrong way, just makes me long for a life that feels so distant....

KEEP BELIEVING

I swear I should have been a boy. That sounds like SOO much fun! I'd have been the one getting all excited over the dead coyote! Glad you guys had a great time, and blogging about it will keep the memory alive even without the pictures. Thanks for sharing.
