More Summer

The Frei family came for a visit! We've only seen them once since we moved away from California, so we didn't know one another's children apart from blogs and Facebook. It turns out that their children (no surprise) are really great.

The kids played together like they'd known each other forever. It was fun for all.

We decided to spend our one full day out at Shaun's folks house so we could just relax and the kids could play in the river. Our boys are used to it, but the Freis were coming off a long week of houseboating, and the combination of tired kids, slippery rocks, and large-ish crawfish eventually led to some spectacular meltdowns.

Here's Nels with his favorite Frei. He told me he liked her best because she is "wiser" than her sister.

These crawdads were all over the place. Supposedly they run away from people, but I wasn't overanxious to find out.

Shame on me for dreading summer. It was fun! Mostly. And I still have one more trip to share.

I love that last picture of the Frei family (minus Eric, unless that's his hand holding the icky crustacean). Nice shot, someone!

Isn't that great? That was Shaun multitasking...holding a crawdad AND taking the picture.
