Skipping Rocks

We finally had a few days of sunshine here over the weekend, and the boys were able to break free of the confines of the house and be happy little kids, outside, enjoying the warmth of the day.

Of course, being little boys, they could not possibly remain clean, and down to skip rocks in the creek they went.




These happy pictures are before Gage accidentally lobbed Brayden in the back of the head with a rock. Then the tears started.

But still, for a little while, they played together nicely and soaked up a bit of sun. All and all it was a nice day.

Cute pictures! We used to live by a creek and throwing rocks into it was endless entertainment

i wish i would've known that you love disciple! i would've had them sign something for you! i have known them since about '97 when they first came to the Teen Center. of course, they've changed most of the people since then (and style)... but at least kevin has stayed constant!

i hope to someday have a lot of property with a creek! i bet your boys have a blast!

My Mom's favorite saying was "After the laughing, comes the crying." That rock story reminded me of that! So cute Mandy!

Ah, I know how that goes. Of course, I'm not sure anyone has been hit with a rock, but they are learning to annoy each other and someone always ends up in tears. SIGH

oh I haven't skipped rocks in forever!! I was never any good at it, and being a typical girly girl, I would have much rather been inside playing with my Barbie Dolls anyways. I wonder if my kids will like skipping rocks, and when they'll get to try it?

Oh, you had a lovely weekend too! Sounds wonderful... except for the rock in the back of the head! :)

YAY for sunshine and skipping rocks. Glad it was mainly a nice day. It has been a really nice spring so far. =D
