We took an impromptu trip to the river by our house today. It was a little reward for the boys being so good at the store. They love going down there, watching ducks, looking at boats and throwing rocks in the water.
I only had my iPhone with me (I have a horrible memory and tend to forget my camera, even when I plan on using it). I was petrified of dropping it in the water. I dropped it (well, my previous phone) in the ocean in the spring.
Ethen was confused why we weren’t allowed to untie the boats and take them for a ride. Ben couldn’t figure out why the ducks wouldn’t eat the rocks he was throwing to them.
Luckily, I managed to keep the phone and both boys out of the water, as well as get a few fun pictures. That is what I call a successful trip to the river.
