January Day

January 16, 2012

Yesterday afternoon, right before sunset, we decided to head outside to enjoy the sun and maybe throw a few rocks in a pond.  I’d wanted to go for a little hike in the mountains, but Isaac said “No mountains.  Throw rocks in pond?” So we decided that might be kind of fun, too

The big pond was completely frozen.  No rock throwing possible here.  Although Isaac was very impressed with a 10 year old boy pounding at the ice with a big wooden post.  Kind of like a caveman.

Geese were walking around on the ice.

We headed over to the St Vrain creek (river?) which was fast flowing and not icy.  Looking for a good rock throwing spot…

We found a spot.  Looks chilly, doesn’t it??

“I’ll throw this one.”

Admiring his handy work.  His goal was to find big rocks (so big that when he threw them he almost stumbled in after them).  They’d make a big splash, then he’d turn to Jamie and say:

Did you get splashed??  I got splashed!!

Repeat, repeat, repeat.

Mesmerized by the big splash he’s created.
