Making WILD Memories with Cousins
My sister is literally driving across the country with her husband and four children because they are moving… which meant a stop through here in Saint Louis 🙂
We had plans to go hiking today, but a popup rain storm this morning caused us to change our plans…A big thanks to another sister for allowing here house to be ransacked by kids… I mean thanks to my sister for hosting a bunch of family members. LOL
By mid morning, the rain had stopped, but there was a chill in the air.
So my dear hosting sister got out the makings for smores and started a campfire!
By early afternoon… the weather was in the 70’s!
We counted 10 bird’s nest along the drive.
THEN I SAW IT…
A WILD PLACE!
One of my nieces was a bit nervous about entering the WILD…
… so I gave her a piggy back ride!
It was with great surprise and happiness that we saw a creek hidden behind the trees!
We stayed and played all afternoon… creating memories and bonding with cousins !!
… and this cousin found some cool rocks. I was pleased I could identify them as chert!
I started doing the happy dance when I happened to look down on the ground and saw a deer antler! This was on my list of things I would like to find someday… I was so excited that someday meant today!!
Everyone wanted to touch and hold the antler… and a few pretended to be a deer themselves!
I am so glad that the cousins were able to make such fun memories!
There’s not much things better in life than finding a hidden creek and playing in it with people you love!
