It was a river kind of day

June 15, 2015

So Poole’s Mill has been a favorite spot of many of our friends, but I’ve never dared brave it on my own.

Last summer I was pregnant with two small ones and this summer although not pregnant, but still with two littles AND a baby. Thank goodness for six adult hands to manage our outdoor adventures.

This girl surprised us all. She’s generally our more hesitant one, but today, she was all IN on this adventure. We had to put her floaties on just in case as we couldn’t be sure how adventurous she was actually going to be. She had so much fun!

This picture makes me smile. She tries so hard to keep up with the big kids and for the most part succeeded today.

This little shallow pool was the perfect spot for our littles.

It provided lots of still water for play.

Papa had his eyes on Ellie-za-beth (as Papa calls her) most of the afternoon.

Elizabeth spent most of her time here. The rocks were smaller and the climb a bit easier also. She could slide and walk around and slide down again.

However, she fell a lot. On one particular fall, she bit a nice sized hole in her lip. Sweet baby.

There really was endless climbing and falling and sliding by everyone.

Even daddy got in on the river rock fun. The combination of both is a sure bet for him.

Brothers in spirit!

Sweet baby is such a trooper. He played, ate, cat napped and after two hours hit the wall.

Oh what fun we had today! Papa tells me there’s a chance we’ll be able to pick up some heavy-duty inner tubes from the tire store and add a new element of fun to these natural rock slides. I think it’s safe to say everyone wants to return. We will bring chairs, water toys for the littles, and antibacterial next time. The falling is inevitable! Happy kids. Happy adults.

Nate likes to comment as we find more and more local places that are nothing like what we had growing up in Kansas. We love Georgia and are happily seeing more and more of it!
