Day at the creek
We had a great time today at the creek with our good friends. I always love doing things with Jenifer because even though she only has 3 children, my 10 don't seem to faze her a bit. She has entertained our brood, cooked for them, gone on vacation with them and she still comes back for more! Today we had 3 adults and 17 children (I had 2 extras and she had 1) along at the creek for a picnic and fun in the water.
The big kids spent a lot of time rerouting this stream passage and damming up the sides to make it go faster. This involved a lot of rock hauling and when they were done they had a great little fast track for their inner tube (and don't tell them that they happened to learn some things about Physics along the way).
They also enjoyed catching fishies
