We've been trying to sneak in a couple more fun activities before the girls head off to school. I thought I'd share two of our recent family outings - they both took place last Sunday.
After church we took our boat out onto the river. It was the first time we've done this since moving into our new river house last spring - and boy is it different than a lake! We had to keep on the lookout for rocks and deadheads (floating logs). The Mississippi, in our neck of the woods, is very narrow, which gives it a cozy feel - and as long as you want to drive the boat, you can just keep on going - until you come to a dam, that is!
We stopped at the "Sandbar" that we've been hearing so much about - and it was breathtaking. Here are the pictures I took.

on the trestle over the river. I wish you could have seen
his face light up!
