Durham, NC (Mon.11/12-Sat.11/17)

Durham, North Carolina: a great spot to continue our decompressing after a seemingly high-speed tour of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington. We really had nothing we wanted to see in Durham (assuming there is something to see). Falls Lake, a N.C. State park, was a good place to catch up on some school work (start catching up).

During the kids free time (which is every other Friday from 1:30 – 1:45), they had plenty to discover. A woodpecker (bottom right), and a spider (bottom left), were fun, but the snake Shae found was the real highlight.

Yes that's my son Kobe wearing his life jacket on our hike through the woods

The mud pit – note the brotherly “act of love” on Levi's back....

We had sticks, critters, and mud – it's the boy trifecta. Because of the dry weather, there is a fire ban. I'll transport my sticks to the next spot...

Well, this section of pix elicited the biggest reaction so far from Amari. It was one "Oh, my gosh!!" right after another. He kept asking for me to show him more and more and was terribly disappointed to find out there were no more. Oh, how he wishes to be with "the boys" in the grassy savanas of Africa, no matter how many times I try to explain to him that's NOT where you are. You could snap shots for National Geographic, Graham! And hey, remember, mud baths are extremely beneficial for the body.
