"STAY"cation Destination 5

Silly Goose.  She has a dimple on her tongue that I just noticed in this picture. 
Boots, Boots, Boots
Right after Lil' E dropped a HUGE rock and got splashed.
Lil' E found this heart rock for me.  AWW thanks buddy. I love you!
This cool rock garden was created by a little girl that was by the river the same time we were there.
Okay make your guesses.  You can give me one of two known names.
Don't forget to look below at Destination 4.  I posted two today since we went to two different places.

"STAY"cation Destination 4

Today we went to two places.  So make sure you check out destination 5 as well.  For this destination I am looking for a specific name, not just a generic word like farm, beach, river, ect.  I want to know the actual name.  I am only asking this because both this destination and 5 are pretty easy to guess.

I never knew cows could be so beautiful and cute. 

"Mommy look a cow"
Love the face Razy
Gotta get the boots in.
Why my children like to stick out their tongues beats me.  I am contantly telling them to put them back in.
Lil' E loved this little cow.  She had the cutest little heart on the top of her head.
Doble's new favorite pose: the Superman pose.
Isn't this just the cutest most adorable little cow you have ever seen?
So where do you think he lives?

"Stay"cation Destination 3

“Child of the pure, unclouded brow And dreaming eyes of wonder! Though time be fleet and I and thou Are half a life asunder, Thy loving smile will surely hail The love-gift of a fairy tale”
~Lewis Carroll
According to the kids there is a "real" princess that lives in this castle.  They were also upset with the king because he wouldn't let us tour the castle.  They wanted me to call him up and say that He and the Queen couldn't come to our house because they wouldn't let us come to their house.
There is a beach very near by this destination.  Good thing because it didn't take long to see all there was to see.  The kids love the water even if it is RAINY AND REALLY WINDY!
Kids + Rocks + Water = Happiness
Run it's going to get me!
Can you see the theme in our "Stay"cation weather?
That's okay because I am really diggin' the boots.
Always has to be a silly picture.
Good Luck with your guesses today!

"STAY"cation Destination 2

Today we had planned to visit a completly different destination.  However, when we arrived it was being closed for remodeling.  The kids were a bit bummed, as was I.  I called up JBody and told him the news.  He asked what we were going to now.  I had no idea, but then he recommended a nearby waterfall.  Once I said waterfall outloud, Lil' E was set and ready with no backing down. 

Let's just say this was going to be bigger adventure than I was prepared for. 

1.  It was pouring.  Yes the sun would come out in spurts.  Some times it was just a drizzle, but other times it was a complete downpour with GIANT raindrops.  Luckily the kids were prepared with rainboots.  Me however, was wearing my nice dress shoes.

2.  The road was closed to get down to the waterfall so we had to park the car on the side of the HWY and walk up to it.  It wasn't too far of a walk, but with Doble short walks become long ones.

3.  We had planned to eat at our original destination.  Now we had to stop at the local convienent store and buy some sandwiches and eat them in the car.  The kids enjoyed this though, because mommy jumped in the back of the van with them.  By the time we were done, the windows were all steamed up.

4.  Rain means puddles.  Puddles mean jumping.  Jumping means mess.  The car ride home was spent in t-shirts and undies because the kids were all wet from the waist down.


Enjoy our pictures and don't forget to make you guess as to where we are!

Lunch in the back of the van.  Bella actually did really good with leaving the kids alone.  As always the kids had to get some silly pictures in.

This picture is pretty much a giveaway as to which waterfall we were near.  This was taken outside the convienent store after we enjoyed our car lunch.  You can't see it, but it was drizzling on us.

Here are two different views of the same waterfall.  Can you guess which waterfall it is?

Puddle jumping: Oh so much fun!
The kids LOVE their boots.  I was really grateful to have had them today!
Now go ahead and make your guesses.  Good Luck!
