Over Labor Day we visited High Falls State Park. It was a lot of fun to spend the entire day with just my boys. Sometimes, I feel outnumbered and then we do something fun like this and I really, really enjoy all of my boys and all of the boyish things they do and I get to do with them. I'm just one of the boys. :)
I would definitely say my boys have mellowed me. There is no room for high maintenance. I realized the other day while on a girls night how "non" girly I was. I love to dress up, wear make-up, and look/feel great... But, heaven forbid it take me more than 30 minutes to get ready or I will have four boys yelling at me to hurry it up. (Although, sometimes when the boys aren't waiting on me and I have time to spare... I like to spend a little extra time.) I have had to change a few things over the years. Thank goodness the style right now is a more natural/go with it kind of look... AND, Alabama falls waaaayyy behind on any sort of trendy so I feel pretty dressed up when I make my weekly trip to Target or TJ Maxx.
High Falls was so pretty and a great place to cool off on a hot Summer day. The Falls have a natural bridge and the water is slow running which allows you to walk across the top of the Falls. There were lots of tide pools to play in and puddles to jump in for the boys.
Nolan hated every second of being in the water... He let us know.
(Sometimes, sad faces are my favorite to capture... they are so sweet.)
Nolan was happier playing in the puddles while sitting on dry ground. :)
Our fun ended when JC decided to take my camera across the Falls to grab a few shots... he got half way, slipped, and fell in WITH my camera. Luckily, they were both ok with minor damages. Luckily. We enjoyed of fun day trip and ended the day at a local Pizza place in Guntersville. Happy Day with my boys.
