On Memorial day we got nostalgic for our old stomping grounds and headed north to Newfound Lake.The weather looked great only thing is we forgot to check the wind gusts. Go figure. We had to stake the children down lest they blow away. Newman O's did the trick. They're very heavy cookies...
So back south we headed to Wester Lake, our backyard body of water when we lived in Franklin. Thankfully, the breeze was not nearly as brutal and we managed to salvage our day. Gabe and Simone occupied themselves playing with Pokemons and Bakugans in the grass after a quick dip.And Rich tortured Caden with the water sprayer.(Don't ask about that poor child's swim suit. His usual attire was no where to be found that morning.)

And sadly we learned he can't blow out candles.Not that he didn't give it an honest effort...
Phew! Thanks to a little inconspicuous help from Daddy.He got another chance a few days later when we threw a little family party but again...it took a little assistance to get the job done.But present opening... he's got it down!

Nature Club brought us to Kids Kove where behind the playground, are trails...alongside a river. And quite a raging river at that!And LOUD too! Caden was fascinated with it.
Finally at the very bottom, a seemingly nice sandy beach...
and a big rock.A perfect spot to practice our trail marker signs... (or so we thought!)I believe this ones means you are supposed to take as many steps foward as represented in the square...So according to Olivia's marker, please take approximately five dozens paces!This young lass demonstrates the stick through a leaf technique used for pointing in which direction one should follow.And though I can't be entirely sure, this convoluted message using multiple signs...may have been the reason half our group traipsed through this evil ivy (as discovered a day or two later for some unfortunate friends).

Every year my fear of planting sends Rich off to Home Depot to buy my herbs for the season. I love them for cooking, I love having my barrels filled with prolific plants but honestly, I want nothing to do with it. Thank god for Mother's Day!
add some dirty hands...and don't forget to "nose" their delicious scent!And voila! A mommy made happy!
