beautiful sunny spring day...not

well today was most definately not a beautiful sunny spring day, that's a little of my sarcastic side coming out.  it was a beautiful day though because we took a drive up to deer creek to get a little fresh air and do one of our favorite activities with the little girls.  we all love to throw rocks into water...i know it sounds a little funny but it's a great way to spend a little time.  the girls think it is the greatest thing and maya is always searching for that perfect rock, the one that will go as far as her little arms can throw it and make the biggest splash and the best sound.  this is the perfect rock for today....
peyton just goes about the task systematically picking up every rock within a little radius around her body and throwing them in one by one.  she was very muddy and a little wet but what's a little dirt when my girl is happy?  that's what childhood is for...
but the person who i think had the most fun was my cute little husband.  he loves to do this sport and is pretty dang good at it.  he likes to show off his skipping abilities (rocks that is) and his famous weenie rocks...i know it sounds bad...it's this special way he throws just the perfect oblong rock into a spiral and it makes a very distinct thunk.  i think that it got his name because he is a boy and that seemed like a good name when he was 12.  who knows?  all i know is that it is one of his special talents.  it is kind of cool though because after 15 years of throwing rocks together i know just what that thunk has to sound like in order for it to be a good one.  i love that!
so, even though it was not sunny, it was a beautiful spring day spent with my family having a little fun and getting rid of some cabin fever.  my life is pretty good...

How fun. Your girls are so dang cute. I think it is so cute when they are riding around with you on your 4-wheeler. Great times for you!

too cute! we're pretty good at skipping rocks over here too, but not good enough to challenge! you guys sound pretty serious rock skippers!

Looks like a fun day! My hubby is good at skipping rocks too. I love watching him.

isn't it amazing what we can do for entertainment? you all probably had more fun skipping rocks than going somewhere that would have cost hundreds of $.
