i bought water boots for the kids.

sunny boots


and then took pictures of them…all lined up.


these were mostly for foot protection (there is plenty of broken glass) since they’d fill up pretty quickly. : )

along a little trail we found a (college?) built tee pee.  perfect size for these little friends.

there are oodles of photos, so many more to sort through…but these give you a sense of what it was like!

  1. How WONDERFUL!!!!! (Let me know if you ever want me to come out to help with a program…water education is my “real” job)


  2. I love this adventure! Kids really don’t do this much anymore and it is so nice that you show it is possible and fun to do. I used to hang out down at the creek all the time as a young child!


  3. Kristen, what a great creek adventure – and the kids must have been so excited to find the teepee. I love the pictures of the gumboots all lined up in a row.
