The boys have really enjoyed the reunion the past few years, ever since it was moved to a summer camp location. By labor day, all of the campers are long gone. But that leaves a big, empty playground with really tall swings and lots of slides mostly empty. It leaves basketball courts open for shots. And most importantly, it leaves a big creek open to explore.
We start by exploring the creek below the dam. The boys wade and eventually go swimming in the water below the dam.
And then we make our way up above the dam, where the paddle boats and the canoes rest on the bank of the creek.
It's a long day. The boys don't really eat much, especially when the fried chicken runs out before we get to the line (poor Sawyer was heartbroken over that one). Xander would have passed anyway, so he wasn't too worried. It's not the food that attracts the boys, it's the water.
I have no idea where they get that from. Really.
