Monday, our friends came down to spend the day at the river with us! Zack stayed home and watched Amelia (really she slept the entire 4+ hours).
Penelope brought along her boat and filled it with shells she collected throughout the day.
“We” (Jennie!) caught two tad poles, around ten fish, one crawfish, and one clam! – Oh, and plenty of rocks :)
This water is so clear! Even in deep areas. So clean and so cold!
We caught a butterfly, but it flew out of the net immediately. We need to find bigger nets!
Our friends brought all the fixin’s for an amazing lunch! Hamburgers, hotdogs, chips and tons of fruit!
I think my favorite part of this little ‘nook’ in the whole scheme of Meramec, is this white sandy beach portion!
We’ve decided to make this a regular get together! While this was probably our last hoorah at the river for the summer, next summer will be full of days spent at the river with friends!
Thanks for visiting, Jennie!!
