Playing in creeks is the definition of summertime fun in my memories of childhood so we headed out to our favorite creek to escape the hot weather and indulge in some messy fun. Finn made his first foray into the unchartered territory of creek walking and tentatively hung out there for a few minutes.
He even discovered a small hollow in a tree beside the creek that he was convinced was the home of a gnome.
So he left it a perfectly smooth rock as a reading chair and a walking stick, just in case the gnome should decide to go for a hike.
Paulie and Elizabeth decided to bring in Queen Anne's Lace to see if they could change the lace color with food coloring. Paulie's is harder to see since it's pink and our kitchen walls are red.
