Creek Excursion

There is a tiny creek behind my mother's house.

Yesterday we decided to take a hike and check it out.

The journey was a little long but worth it once we made it through the briars.

Our turtle friend was resting on the bank and stayed there so we could meet him.

Thanks for the opportunity.


  1. Wow! How cool - I KNOW the kiddos were excited about that one! He looks big. . . and angry O.o

  2. That turtle looks like he is saying hi! I love excursions:) Have a blessed evening my friend! Hugs!

  3. Seriously... I have never seen a turtle so up close and personal. They are just ugly suckers, aren't they? I felt the same way when I saw a beaver up close.

    But I know that kids were just delighted!

    I think the education PLUS the just good old memory making time on things like a creek walk are valuable beyond measure.

  4. oh I like the turtle much better than the snake! but turtles are my favorite!
