Today we took a little day trip to the River. We played around for hours and also enjoyed a picnic. We threw rocks, played Shark (simply pretend you are a shark and come after someone in the water), admired all the beautiful butterflies, built a sand castle, marveled at the dragonflies landing on our bodies, and swam around. All three kids were asleep on the car ride home. You would think they would be waterlogged, but when we got home, they wanted Dad to spray them with the hose for a long time. Then they took a bath.
