Mountain Creek Fun

The kids played for hours in the creek that ran below the cabin. I don't think it gets any better for kids when they have a creek to play in. It was a shallow creek with cold mountain water, so we didn't have to worry about them staying in for long. But they had fun wading, catching snakes and fresh water mussels and attempting to pan for gold. Hailey and her cousin, Jacob, hung out together at the creek for awhile. They are only six months apart in age.

Love this picture of them looking at each other with funny faces.

Look at the view behind them!

My sis looking on as the kids play.
Yes, I feed my son and he eats like a horse, although this picture makes it look like he's malnourished, LOL. He's stretching out quick, now if we could get a little meat to stay on his bones!

Hailey and Josiah panning for gold with their cousin, Marcus. 

I spent an hour looking through all their diggin's. Only found "fools gold" and mica, but was definitely fun to try.

Creeks and kids are just the best combination. There is so much they can do with their imaginations.

Josiah is so busy. He burns off every calorie put in his mouth!

The creek was fun! Sorry about leaving you stranded though while I took a nap. Hee hee ;)

Can't wait to go back. It was so beautiful there.
