Then, after we had been putting him off for quite some time, our neighbors took their boys fishing. And Cory heard about it. And after that we were toast. He continued to press, and finally Ted got the fishing license and bait so he'd have no excuse. That very night he took Cory out with our neighbors. Cory was beside himself with excitement when Ted asked his if he wanted to go fishing. Umm, yes. He was ready to go in a flash.
And he caught the group's biggest fish of the evening. He was so proud.
When he got home it was time to learn the fine art of storytelling. So, Cory, how big was the fish you caught?
Or maybe more like this big

There is a great little rock "amphitheater" where people have set up granite rock towers. There was a large slab with many rocks of various sizes that the kids called the "work station." They all tried building their own towers to the collection.
The highlight was the rocky shoreline where we were able to scramble and climb on the giant rocks.
Mary Beth loved this part of our day, and charged ahead of all of us climbing and exploring.

We found lots of critters as we walked the trails...
The kids loved trying to catch the toads/frogs, and were sometimes successful! Ewww. Better them than me
I have about 7 different pictures of the kids with the frog--and in every single one of them the little guy in the front is turned around looking at the frog--don't know if he was that curious, or a little nervous about turning his back on the frog.
I suggested the girls try to kiss the frog--you never know what might happen, right? None of them were willing to, though.
