Warning – Picture Alert!!
I had not realized how long it was since I posted to my poor little blog. Summer has been busy busy busy!!! And I really need to get back to so many things – scrapbooking and cross stitching for just a couple. I think that might just happen this fall. Both boys will be in school and my free time with expand by leaps and bounds. I will miss them I know. But at the same time, it is going to be good.
We took a short trip to Red River, NM this last week. Left on Wednesday with the boys and our dog. Then Kathleen and Mike came up with their two dogs. It was an interesting trip. And really nice and cool. Rained a couple of times on us. But we still managed to have some campfires and ate S’mores – of course!
First we had to go to Medipark Lake to practice fishing. Zachary caught a catfish, that escaped – WHEW! – and Zane caught something that slipped off the hook. Probably a perch. Heading out.. Columbine camp area. We went fishing one morning. After seeing the man across the lake pulling one fish after another in, Zachary went across and asked what he was using. Marshmallows and worms. Went back and played and ate. And watched the hummingbirds. Then took the boys back after buying some worms and grabbing some marshmallows.Still no luck. Found out Buddy loved getting in the water and chasing stuff downstream. Walking through the stream. More hummingbirds… And a chipmunk who wanted the dog food. And a butterfly sharing the water. And finally Dad helped them catch fish!!! Oh, they caught them but something about Mom and Dad being here helped. The boys played with the little gel pellet guns and had a blast for three hours! Campfires with S’mores – and a little hamming it up! Our camper set up. Playing a game. Just some views around us. And finally the trip home. We hit some storms and it really made the trip home interesting and pretty. A deer jumped in front of us as we neared home but she sailed out of the way. Whew! And, BAM!, we were home and back to the heat. Sigh. Come on fall.
