Our day's adventures began with Trev insisting we breakfast at a particular local diner. You know the kind.Things picked up soon - I so enjoy when the babes ask interesting questions, leading us into thoughtful conversations.
Today it started out with Trev saying "I'd like to know who the first human ever born was."
Soon enough we were driving a quick few minutes up the canyon for the Paddle Festival. We intended to try out many boats today - kayaks, canoes, rafts, and sailboats, but Eric was feeling ill (and not up to being on water), so we soon changed our plans.
We explored the area for a little while, the Mama's time was mostly spent meditating alone on a mountainside surrounded by soft earth, gentle winds, lovely tunes, tall green grasses, and wildflowers - while the babes explored with Eric.
Soon we headed a bit further up the canyon to one of our favorite spots.
Where we discovered wild honeysucklebeautiful birds
a beaver's dam
-and a beaver's trail-
a garter snake - the children's first one
and Maddie's roly poly.
Much to my regret our time was cut short, as Eric has to work this evening.
On the way home Maddie pelted her Daddy with grapes and tomatoes. At first he thought something was flying in the window, and bouncing back out again.
Then we heard wicked laughter coming from the back seat - which gave her away.
Back at home
it's things as usual.
kickin' it with mags
playin' outside (finally, sunshine!)

All is well.
