Now, to be fair this adventure took place on Thursday of this past week. But because the stamp previews take up the posts for the week...I decided that I would wait and post this today.
My nephews were over on Thursday. Now, most of you know of Mr. Carter, but his brother Christopher was over as well. (Christopher lives in Pittsburgh with his mother). Carter has been bugging me for weeks to take him on a walk to the lake. So, I decided that Thursday would be the day. I was off work, and there was the added benefit of spending time with Christopher as well.
Once we got to the lake we took our shoes off to put them in the water. Then the boys decided to attempt to catch the minnows that were in the shallows.
Christopher (whose hair is actually more reddish brown naturally) was much more into catching the fish than Carter. He was a little freaked out that they were going to eat him.
After much convincing (and a walk back home) we decided to go swimming. Needless to say, they had a blast!! It was fun, though a bit rocky at first because I did not have a life vest or floaties for Carter to wear. But he was such a good sport about staying where he could touch. So while they were swimming and playing...
I took some pictures of the many dragonflies that were around. I even caught a few in a private act, but I thought this was too cute not to post.
Overall it was a lovely way to spend the day. Though I created a monster because now all I hear from Carter is.."when are we going swimming again?"
