As you saw from my last post, Friday was a snowy mess of a day. Saturday was beautiful and ended up getting to about 48 degrees. Clint and Dane went down to the River to do a little fishing and Kimber, Grandma and I spent the morning running errands. We had talked about going out on the boat, but part of the road to Holter is dirt and it was probably a mess. So, we decided to stick closer to home. Then we all regrouped at the house and Clint, Dane, Kimber and I headed back down to the River. Here are some pictures from our walk on the River's Edge Trail...
In even such a short time, their was a hatch of some sort of flying bug... Here they are all lined up on a post.
The bugs hatching provide great food for the swallows that build their nests on the rocks. I actually didn't even see these until Dane pointed them out to me.

Today we decided to head out for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Wow, there sure were a lot of people and kids! But, the kids had a really great time and it was such a beautiful day to be out.
Here is Dane saying hello to the Easter Bunny.
Dane picking up eggs... Since he didn't get any candy in his Easter basket, he enjoyed the sweets that were hidden in these eggs. (he did get cool stuff though... a butterfly net, a "bug keeper", a little fishing set from Grandma, a bubble gun from Nana and Grandpa... all fun things!)
Grandma went with us to the Easter Egg Hunt. She and Kimber hung out while Dane and I did some of the other stuff.

Clint was working for all of that fun but about the time we got home he was off work. So we visited with Grandma for a few minutes and then headed back down to the River. This time we took the butterfly net and Clint used it to catch all kinds of fun stuff... like crawdads, snails, minnows, a bullhead sculpin, waterbugs, etc. Who knew a butterfly net from the dollar store could provide so much fun! Then we brought some of it home and put it in our fishtank! Having kids is so much fun... it totally allows us to be kids again!
Well, the snowy, sloppy weekend really ended up to be a lot of fun. Maybe if the weather holds we can get out fishing next weekend, otherwise we will still find something fun to do!!!
