Making new friends!

About a month ago, Cindy, over at Zach Aboard, and I discovered that her in-laws and I live in the same town. It's amazing how small the world can be, even though the blogging world often seems so large. Her family came into town for a visit this weekend, and our family was fortunate enough to be able to meet up with her and Zach at a local park that we frequent.

The kids had a great time traipsing around in the creek,

and they quickly caught Zach up to speed on searching for crawdads.

They were even lucky enough to catch one in a jar that Cindy had enough forethought to bring along.

Then, of course, the kids moved on to catching other wildlife.

Finn was just interested in ruining his wooden car in the sandy creek bottom.

They found a trail alongside the creek.

And scavenged for rocks to dam up the creek.

We had such a great time playing with and getting to know Cindy and Zach. We hope they travel down our direction for another visit very soon!
