Sunday afternoon was so warm and sunny. After lunch the Monkeys, the Tool Man, and I decided to go for a boat ride. We are so blessed to live right on the bank of a river, or a creek as we call it. At any time we can just walk down to the pier, hop in our boat, and zoom off down the creek.
Safety first! Daddy helped Lucy with her lifejacket. This is the first time she’s worn one in about a year, and, luckily, she didn’t seem to mind it.
Ty and Daddy had set out a few yoyo’s the day before, so Ty had to show me some of the bait they had left over. He was beginning to get a little too close for my comfort, which he found to be extremely funny.
Little Lu Lu helped Daddy out with the controls.
Look! Front row seats for fishing. Can you say, “Redneck?” And, no, this is not on our property, thank you very much.
How come whenever kids find a cubby hole they’ve just got to climb in? I’m amazed that these two were able to get so close to each other without someone getting pushed overboard.
First class seats. (No, the boat was not actually moving while they were sitting up there.)
We “chased” several cranes while riding down the creek. There’s always a crane fishing in the waters edge behind our house. Ty loves to watch them and then try to scare them away. He’s such a boy!
Speaking of the devil… He was in another one of his picture taking moods again. Here he is posing all prim and proper like.
Under the bridge…
No wonder I get nervous when I have to drive over this thing.
Ty was just dying to jump in for a swim. Yuck! I’ve seen some of the creatures that live in the creek, and I don’t want to be in there with them. Eighty pound catfish, snakes, snapping turtles, snakes, jumping fish. Did I mention snakes?
