Fun In The Boondocks

This has been a busy week for our family. Sunday, the kids played with the cats, and I busied myself taking pictures. My favorite of that day was the Ladybug with the Aphid Bon Appetit

Monday was a fairly sunny day, and according to the weather report, it was the only promising day of the week. In addition to that, it was also getting awful close to tourist season so we decided it would be a good day to head to the beach once again.

This time we decided to head to Sunset Bay. Since this particular location includes a fair amount of tidepools, we were able to count it as a Science Field Trip. I was tickled to manage some photos of some of the life residing within those tidepools.

Once the Science portion of our trip was done, school was over and the real fun began!
Jumping In To Action
Beach Jogging
The kids ran and jumped
Sneak Attack!
It Almost Got Me!
They played and they laughed

Up On The Cliff Top
They explored

I'm A Bay Watcher !
They stopped and said hello to the gull on watch
It's A Plane!
They waved at the floatplane that happened by
Sunset Bay
At the end of the day we all stopped and looked back for one last glance of the bay as the sun began descending.

Tuesday morning I began going through the 178 photos I had managed to take. I narrowed them down to about half that number, then went through them again. It took me all of Tuesday, then yesterday, and finally I finished loading the 40 chosen photos to load on to my flickr.

This afternoon, we're off to town. The kids are in need of more library books!

Hope this week is turning out to be as fun for you and your families as it has been for us!

Great shots. I miss my kids--all grown up and away from home. Actually, I don't miss them since we see each other or speak to each other frequently--I miss their childhood. They grew up too fast.
