Fun at the Creek

We love taking the kids to Mountain View to swim in Blanchard Springs. It's such a fabulous creek in the National Forest. It's about an hour drive, but well worth it.

Tristan is not an adept swimmer, but with a life jacket and Dad's help he manages to not take too much water onboard.



While Tristan is swimming, Julius diligently stalks fish.













Sand and rocks are also fun. Tristan takes a break to dig and roll in the sand.



Life is so good in the great outdoors!





The mighty crawdad hunter stalks his prey...





This is actually the catch of a lady who was there hunting crawdads. She had a pretty decent selection going and was kind enough to let Julius look at hers and she showed him a few crawdad catching tips. Julius caught one baby crawdad, but released it back into the wild so he could grow big and fat for a future crawdad hunter!
