Ditch Water Stinky Feet

Saturday we loaded up
and headed to the cape for the day

these were greeting us when we got there
worth the trip for sure

while the boys surveyed the work
that had been completed on the driveway

us girls went to the cemetery
to plant flowers

when we got back
we headed out on a
tadpole hunt

there were all kinds
and while we billy goated around the rocks
in our flip flops

I casually landed on a sandbar
that was not a sandbar

note to self
ditches do not have sandbars!

so after sucking my foot out of the muck
and then having to dig for my flip flop
all while trying to avoid dropping my camera
in the mud & water...

do you have the mental picture yet
it was quite funny

first she found a toad

but with determination
and jar in hand

she caught only one tadpole
which she released before we left

those buggers are fast!

when we got back to the cottage
Trev was teasing her
that she had

ditch water stinky feet

so that was the ongoing joke
the rest of the afternoon
and into the evening...

we picked a bouquet of wildflowers

and stuck them in a mason jar

it's the only vase to use
at the cottage

there is nothing better
than a tomboy
that likes flowers in here hair!

We had a great day
BBQ'd for supper
then home that evening

it was the kind of day
the memories are made of

The wildflowers are great Lori. A mason jar makes the best vase anyway:) She's a doll!
