Turner Falls 09

On Friday we went to Jimmy's Egg for breakfast. Because they are only open until 2pm, we had missed chances all week to go. We got there about 9am and had a wonderful breakfast. Afterward we made the decision to go to Turner Falls for the day. We hadn't been in 3 years and wanted to go again. It is a little pricey, but cheaper than driving far and having to stay in a hotel.
Turner falls and the Arbuckle mountains are beautiful. The water is clear and the views are awesome! Aaron and I used to camp there when it was cheaper, now we will have to go in the off season to afford to camp, but it would still be worth it. I was worried about how Zac would be, but he was so good! He did his usual in the car, but once we got there he was fine. The boys had a blast and we took 275 pictures of just the 5 hours that we were there! I bet we have to get another hard drive soon so that we can have more space for all the photos, ha.
We came to the conclusion that Alex and Parker will be taking swimming lessons again this fall. Parker panicked 3 times and never told anyone he needed help swimming. It was scary! He can swim great, but couldn't touch and got nervous and didn't remember what to do. Alex was fine the entire time, except for being too brave and going off by himself. Zac has no fear, that boy would jump if you told him to. He didn't care! Thank goodness for life jackets and floaties. Overall, it was a fun day. Now we just need to get people to go with us, anyone?
