Mill Creek

Yesterday we took the Posts to a nearby picnic area, Mill Creek. It's about 20 miles out of town, in the mountains and a perfect place to let the kids explore! Sharla, Jerry and their kids came too so, we had about the same number of people as on Tuesday. First, the kids did all kinds of exploring and playing in the creek (only the 2 babies and Alaina came home dry!) then, roasted hot dogs and marshmellows for lunch.

We were happy to have my dad along so he could roast our hot dogs!

I was also happy to have him along so he could keep an eye on Trent... he's a pretty handy guy to have around! LOL
Trent is always giving me this "what stinks" face! He did have a great time playing in the dirt and leaves

Typical NV sagebrush; with spring here now they are turning green and smell so good!

Tys doing his best at not getting wet but, also doing some investigating in the creek.

He and Jacob found it fun to use sticks and flip up wet leaves.... a couple landed in Tys' hair!

"Look, mom, I found leaves!"
The boy's well-deserved naps
