We went up to Frye Lake, near Worthen Meadows for a fun morning of canoeing, fishing, picnicing, and getting mud between our toes. Whose toes are those??????

Charlotte is in love with fishing, she has her own pink fishing rod and is now a master at trolling (letting her line hang in the water while Mama and Papa paddle) in the back with her Papa. She trolled for 30 minutes--some serious 3 yr old patience. Every once in a while she would ask is there a fish on there yet? And at the end of the day why didn't we catch one?

Timothy had fun too and was only interested in fishing because that's what his sister was doing. He was the happiest sitting between my legs right up in the bow of the boat-the best view in the house.

Perhaps next time I will be daring enough to fish the camera out of my bag (silly pun intented) while paddling a canoe with 2 toddlers. But this time, just getting them to sit on their bottom and not rock the boat while paddling was enough for this trip.

segment #1

We recently went on vacation to visit family and friends in North Carolina. I think the easiest way to see all the highlights from our vacation is in segments. So here is segment #1, our time in Denver. We went down a day early to make our traveling easier. We love to catch The Rockies playing whenever we can and we had fun cheering them on.

Happy Father's Day

Timothy's 2

Well the birthday pics are making it up before the vacation pics--such is life.
We had a fun impromptu family celebration which went something like= bike ride to visit Cinch, bike ride to the grocery to pick up corn dogs and the cake Papa ordered Timmy, eating goodies from the grocery store in the park, playing on the jungle gyms, 2 tired kids and one tired Mama crashing out for a nap, then more celebration later at home opening presents, and playing with water in the back yard.
