Yesterday we had absolutely nothing to do so it was the perfect day to start.
We headed off south, going about 28 miles and then west another 9. We ended up at precisely the place we were wanting to be:
the middle of nowhere!
More accurately, the hummingbird feeders in the middle of nowhere. There were at least 15 birds humming around us as we sat and watched them eat and fight and pester each other. Then it was off into the woods.
Little lovers stayed in one spot almost the whole time. He threw in tons of rocks and sticks and didn't even pay attention to where he was throwing them. He just bent over, picked them up and hucked 'em!
The other three were all over the place. Climbing over dead trees, splashing each other, making up some river rock game, running through the grass, etc.
We only spent a couple of hours there but it was enough to break the monotony of home.
Dirty kids with hair bleached from the sun, smelling like creek water and mud. Now that's my idea of a perfectly spent summer day!
We sure do love where we live!
