The Lester river runs behind our house and today we drove closer to the mouth of the river to see the waterfalls and swim in the pools. The picture above is Kira jumping off the rocks into the waterfall pool. She jumped from higher than this too but I was too scared to take a picture because no mother wants photographic evidence of her baby getting seriously injured "... And this is the picture of the exact moment Kira broke both her legs and knocked out all her front teeth"; but I should have because I have never seen a happier face on a person in my life. Oh, and no broken legs or teeth.
She's a daredevil. Sam and I thought she was nuts. After that we moved down the river to a quieter spot and discovered hundreds and hundreds of crayfish. They were all over the place. I told the kids that I want to take a camp stove down there and have a crayfish boil. They think that sounds gross.
This little guy, and about 40 others just like him kept crawling up to my feet that were soaking in the water.
|Sam caught this teeny guy and put it in Kira's goggles. Cute huh?|
|The kids walking down the river.|
|Kira climbed up this rock and when she got to the top she said, "It's too hot! It's too hot!|
So Sam splashed water on her until she could get down. What a guy!
|It was a great day! I love Duluth!|
