A Picnic at Rattlesnake Lake

We had some sunny weather this Saturday so we decided to pack up a picnic and head to one of our favorite places: Rattlesnake Lake. It was a little chilly up there, but the kids still loved throwing rocks in the water. We started eating our lunch and a couple of minutes later a duck was swimming by looking for some free in true Clegg fashion...we couldn't resist!

Pretty soon we were joined by another duck and a crow! The kids LOVED it!

Sophie loving feeding the ducks!

Brady tried to find the biggest rocks or sticks he could find...then would throw them in! Garrett and I took a bet to see which kid would fall in first...we knew that one of them bets were on Brady! We finished up our lunch then went for a walk to the other side of the lake.

The water can get really high up here. It was actually really high, but not high enough to cover the trailhead path. The make shift path planks were still there though, so the kids thought it made the perfect balance beam. Check them out...all pros at balancing!

Once we got to the other side of the lake the kids braved the cold water and waded in...and it's all fun and games until...

...someone falls in! He was running around splashing the girls and totally took a nose dive into the water head first. It was hilarious! TOTALLY SOAKED! He had to wear Grace's sweatshirt and just a diaper home.
Such a sad face!

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! Breakfast in bed with all the kids! LOVED IT!

Rainy Day Cookies

Since we have had A LOT of rain the last few weeks...we have been stuck inside the house...and I am running out of ideas to keep the kids from going crazy!!!! So while Grace is at school one day we made COOKIES! The kids LOVED helping me too!
