Beach and many trips to the swimming pool fill our summer days. My kids just like to be in the water! This summer we discovered a local spring that they could swim in. (I will post pictures next time.)
Last weekend we decided to do something different and went to a local state park and swam in the falls. It made me a little bit nervous but the kids had a blast!
We left right after church on Sunday, had a picnic lunch and then hit the trail to hike to the falls.
The rocks were slippery and the water was deep in spots. I didn't do much relaxing, but it was fun to watch them play!
I wish I could upload a video of this. They found a spot that they could safely ride the falls down. It was hilarious to watch Macheus be tossed about and then go right back for more.
It was such a pretty place!
Matthew is always such a good sport playing with the little boys!
Malachi discovered a little "cave" behind the falls.
Marc stood at the end of the falls and pulled Macheus out with a stick... over and over and over.....
Me and two of my girlies!
Macheus was wiped out! Madeline used her headband to stabilize his wobbling head. :)
Yes, next post will be pictures from the spring. I can't decide which place is prettier... the falls or the springs. :)
