Firsts, Part 4.

Last weekend we went up to camp and enjoyed the beauty of the northern states in the peak of the fall season. This is what I missed SOOO much about living in CA, TX and GA. Fall is my favorite time of year. So many colors, the temperatures, the tastes..... aaaah this is home.

This morning I woke up to frost on the ground and cars and it occurred to me that it's well past time to buy winter coats. This will be John's first glimpse of snow, and Seth's first glimpse of snow that actually sticks to the ground and piles up.

Anyhow, last weekend at camp I got to take Seth 4-wheeling, and fishing, and both boys kayaking. Which of course leads me to the "First" of this post...... Seth's First Fish! We had beautiful weather and I got some beautiful pictures.

John didn't actually come fishing with us.
His feet didnt' touch the bottom of the boat and he couldn't
keep his balance with the rocking of the boat.

Seth caught a salmon.

We also got to go to a kite festival. Unfortunately we didnt' have enough wind for kiting, but Seth got to make his own kite and run with it.
I saved my favorite picture for last.... kayaking on Sunday morning with my boys. John was in my lap.

Ocean of Sky

From an email I received this morning from my sister on her conversation with my nephew:

It was raining this morning. My adorable son looks up at the sky and
says, "Mommy, is the ocean in the sky?" I smiled and said, "It does look
like that, doesn't it?" "Yeah, can I drink it?" he responds. He
promptly opens his mouth, sticks out his tongue and tips his head back
to drink some of the ocean. *sigh* I got a glimpse of the world
through my child's eyes. What a way to start the day!
