We had a great evening!

Oliver brought his crawdads to show
 whoever would listen.

Allie is our new favorite at the Courtesy Counter!

Mark and Daisy waiting.

Excited to get in!

This should be a video of Oliver jumping.
If it doesn't work, Mommy will fix it tomorrow.

(Goodnight and sweet dreams.)

Crawdad Camp

This morning after our breaks we went to Stagecoach Park again to set up our Crawdad Camp for a bit!  Oliver was excited to catch crawdads and had been planning his bait since the night before.  He talked about crawdads this morning with Grammie-fun!

Going to the trail and stream.

Mommy's seat yesterday.

Mommy set up base camp!  She read, helped Oliver,
and did some nice stretches.

Mommy's book.  Its really good so far.

His first crawdad of the day!

(Do you think you can help with crawdads?)


Happy fisherman!

Happy Sunday!

Oliver woke up in a much better, refreshed mood this morning.  After our morning break we headed over to Stagecoach park to play along the little hiking trail:

Oliver searched for crawdads.

Mommy sat in a twisted mess of

While Oliver explores...

and Mommy read this.  Inspiring, but
not exactly what Mommy is used too.

Oliver says racoon tracks!  Mommy
isn't sure.

Big Crawdad he caught with some other
boys that were on the trail.

Crawdad Crawling.

Mommy spotted an egret while Oliver
was fishing.

In the car we made notes of what to bring tomorrow
when we go back for a bit.

Oliver had Mommy add shrimp to the journal.
(Mommy likes making lists.  It keeps 
getting longer...)

Oliver shared his crawdads with one of
our favorite courtesy girls!  

Pretty day for a swim.

Getting his floaties.

Mommy and Oliver swam together for 20 minutes.
Then Oliver's Daddy came to get him for a few hours.
Oliver was pretty happy to share one of his
favorite places with his Daddy.


Mommy left them playing and had many, many
directions she needed to go.

Our transition has been much better tonight.
Oliver is really into building an army fort right now.

Happy Saturday!

We had a difficult transition today.  But a nice, peaceful swim together.  (Mommy feels like being quiet again.)  Thank goodness its Friday.
