Whew...what a day we had! I am still feeling it, sore muscles...aches and pains here and there. :) Saturday, my husband wanted to take us to one of his favorite fishing holes. We've all been there before, but it's been a couple of years...oh how time makes you forget things sometimes. This favorite place is called "Canyon Creek". The first clue should have been the CANYON part of that name. :) It was a very steep canyon....strait down or up depending on if you were at the top or at the bottom. I could do this! Right? Umm....sure I could. :) This picture does NOT do this climb justice...it was MUCH longer than this appears and climbing out was literally done on my hands and knees. :) So much fun!
It was beautiful though! This is a calm part of the creek, there were rapids and waterfalls not far from this spot. The kids enjoyed their time fishing and getting wet on this warm day, I just enjoyed watching them and taking pictures of the beauty of the creek and my family fishing together. Such fun! I did find myself missing our oldest boy though. It's hard to get used to him not being here with us all the time, I'm not ready for this stage of life with my kids. So, our Marine was missed...I'm sure by all of us.
The kids did well fishing. Many fish were caught and released because they were too small, but several were brought home for our dinner. A fun day, full of memories, for sure! The getting out of the canyon was harder than getting in and I was seriously wondering if this mama could make it! My ever patient husband kept pace with me...not a hard thing as I am a slow climber...making
sure I didn't fall back down into the canyon. My hero! :)
I love having time with my family, spending days like this make for some really fun memories for all of us. Life can be so busy, we can be so focused on the "task of the day" that we miss special moments sometimes. I didn't miss many this day. :)
