On our way home over the Circle Drive bridge, my 2 youngest hollered, 'sand!'. Really, it should have been 'river' but the darn thing is so dry this year. So we continued home, picked up our pooch, I grabbed my camera, and we headed back to the river to play. We stayed for hours. The river is so shallow. The sand extends about a third of the way into where the river usually is.
Someone couldn't stay out of the water!
The kids hauled rocks to the shore and tried building a sundial. I love when they chose a very hardworking task. The rocks were big and very heavy. They love to work! Later, the sun came out and she joined the dog for a swim.
Isn't this unreal? This is what we tip-toed over to get to the sand.
Don't get me wrong - there's still flowing water and deeper parts. But what fun we made out of it - right in the city too. We played until the sun sunk behind the trees.
I hope you enjoyed my late Sunday Snapshots! It was a really fun ending to a good day. Be safe,
