A couple of weeks ago, the kids and I went to Missouri. We had a mini vacation of sorts. We went to Silver Dollar City in Branson. I took the kids on the cave tour. It was Zadok's first time in a cave and he really liked it. We also did various things around the house, like picnics and hand painting fabrics.
The kids went a couple of days before I went down, because I had a really nasty ear infection. When they got to the house, this was in the yard:
The kids went to Bryant Creek to swim while staying with the grandparents. Iris has a weird ability to catch animals. This time she was catching fish with Cheetos. She would float the Cheeto in the water, wait for a fish to come nibble and then catch it with a net or a plastic bag. She caught three fish in a very short amount of time.
She also caught a crawdad. I have not seen one striped like this before.
She also caught the smallest frog that I have ever seen.
No animals were harmed in making this post and all creatures were released back into the wild.
