Scott and April told us about a neat little place
they'd gone kayaking through lily pads.
A few weeks ago they invited us to come check it out!
As we crested the hill, this was the sight spread out before us!
The lily pads had totally taken over the waterway
since Scott and April were there last!
Scottie went out to see if it was possible to paddle through them.
Nope, no going through
so as he was turning around
he decided to pick a yellow water lily for April.
On the shore, we were talking and laughing
and when we looked back out at Scottie,
this was all we saw!
Turns out yellow water lilies have super thick,
fibrous stems which make them near impossible to pick.
Scottie's an all in kind of a guy for sure!!!
He reminds me of an awesome talk last General Conference...
Plan B took us to April's childhood swimming hole!
I've heard the best stories of her growing up
on "the Ranch out to Henry".
It was such a treat to see it first hand!
Many years ago, BC (before children) the Mr. and I
carried snorkel gear in our car,
just in case the opportunity arose.
We learned that from Scott and April.
So when we got to April's old swimming hole,
she grabbed the snorkel gear from their truck and Scottie and I were off.
Rascal was all in for a minute but it was mighty cold
so he turned tail and climbed back out.
We followed Scott and April in their flaming watermelon
through pastures and fields and past this guy.
We ended up at Blackfoot Reservoir
where we found lots of open water.
We sure love these two!
Thanks Scott & April for your great company
and the super fun day!
