boat racing

grab your boots folks, it's time for some boat racing! charlotte and timothy's new house has the coolest yard ever, complete with soft green grass, a hammock, a swingset, and... a creek! it's really stinking cool and we're hoping the schell's don't mind if we practically camp out there all summer ;) i am pretty sure my children would never leave if we let them. as you can see, the creek is the perfect depth-- shallow enough for even young toddlers but swift enough to send boats down. at this point in the season, mud boots are a pretty good idea, as it is really cold with all the snow melt, not that the kids care or anything!

  1. The girls are so lucky to have friends with this wonderful backyard. All the kids certainly looked like they were having a ball.

  2. be careful in the creek... many many bacteria live there ! I know its fun... we have a creek in the backyard too, only I think Phil was more interested in the treehouse he tried to build on the other side of the creek! They certainly are having a grand time!
