The twins in the stroller. Big Matt in front, tiny Heidi in the rear. That`s because Matthew would bop Heidi just for fun, if she were ahead of him. Heidi was patient about being a bit squished in the back!
The beautiful day beckoned us outside yesterday. We have a creek that runs under a bridge only half a mile from our house, and it's a perfect place to explore. The kids often see deer tracks, or raccoon tracks. Minnows flit through the shallow water, which only a month ago was a raging torrent. Granny and Mommy stayed on the bridge, but the adventurers went below.
"Me, too, Linda!" Three year old Stewie insisted on going in the long grass down by the creek. Linda patiently went with him, even though she knew she`d end up having to carry him out!
There`s nothing like a Sunday stroll with family and friends on a beautiful spring day. When combined with a bit of adventure, it`s the stuff memories are made of.
My life is like a stroll upon the beach,
As near the ocean`s edge as I can go.
- Henry David Thoreau
