A Trip to the River

It's actually getting hot enough to be considered summer here, so on Friday we decided to take our van down by the river to let the girls swim. This was a section of the Bitterroot River where there's a little parking lot and pathway down to the water and boy was it packed when we got there. Luckily, the sandy/beachy spot we had scoped out was open (most of it is covered in river rock, which is nice, but more slippery for the kids). The water was COLD. And I say that as someone who absolutely loves the original Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, TX and has complained about how cold THAT water is many a time.........nah, that was nothing. This was COLD. I was smart enough not to wear a swimsuit so I got away with only putting my feet in. Daddy wore his suit and got suckered into taking the girls out into the middle. He was the favorite parent of the moment, but I was warm!

We also made it to the Farmer's Market this morning, which we've missed for the last couple of weeks. There are more goodies out and we came home with carrots, onions, cabbage, tomatoes and zucchini. A few pics from the stands:
