On gorgeous early summer mornings we love to play in the river.
We enjoy walking Tuggles down the hiking trails.
We love skimming stones by the bridge, chasing each other around the playground and running through the field and under the road bridge to get ice cream at Scoops!
Most of all we like to share our special spot.
Lately we have been sneaking out in the evenings for a quick swim. The life guards have gone home by then and there are no rules! The kids can use their boogie boards and swim out to the middle of the pond! They feel so free!
The children have made up a list of dares. One is to swim to the middle of the pond and touch the bottom!
Of course I am a mere spectator in the shenanigans. But I love it all.
