What do you do when it rains so much that all the land around you becomes a swampy, muddy marsh? Go to the flooded creek near your house and let your children become a muddy mess there. My girls love going to the creek (okay, technically it's a run, but who wants to talk about the run near their house?), and seeing it overflowing made it all the more fun. It was nice to see other young people coming down, enjoying an adventure, and not afraid of a little (or a lot) of mud. The young people pictured were kind, considerate, and the type that gives me hope for the future. I couldn't help but smile when I saw them crossing the creek, (as you'll notice, you can't see the stepping stones that are in place so you can cross)and of course I flashed back to when I was that age.

When I took the top picture, I actually thought I'd make it a black and white. Turns out, I like it better in this vintage tone. Surprised me.

That's really beautiful!

I wish you lived closer. I'd give anything to have photos of this quality taken and mailed to Richard, for him to look at. :)
