A Change In Plans

So I woke up this last Saturday with a list of projects to do...fix this, hang that, etc. Turns out God had something different in store. The kids walkie talkied me and asked if I would take them on a bike ride to the old stone corral, and being that I shot them down on Friday I figured it was only fair I did. We headed out and as we got to the top of the dirt road I heard some motorcycles, so we pulled along the side and watched them ride by. There were six and each one did a different trick. Then we continued on and played in the remains of the river...pools of algae. As you see below the kids had a blast giving this dinosaur rock different faces. I was looking for frogs, but had no luck. So the kids said, "Lets pack a picnic and head to the other stream and hunt for frogs." So, we biked home packed lunches and I drove them down the dirt road to another stream with much lass algae. We enjoyed our lunches, sharing cookies and trying each others different flavored drinks like I use to do in school. Then we caught a ton of little tiny frogs. I still made it home with enough daylight to finish my list.

So I have this awesome startbucks hard plastic cup that comes with a straw. I washed it last night and left it out to dry on the motorhome kitchen sink. This morning I went to put everything away and the straw was no where to be found. Seriously? What in the world would mice want with a straw? I am so bummed!
