Sick (Spring) Break....

My lack of blogging is not because we were on some really great family vacation for spring break, but because I have been sick for the entire break. We usually try and go yurt camping for a day or two during the break, but we didn't plan any getaways this year and I am glad because I would not have been able to enjoy it.
I am feeling really behind in everything. This bug has zapped a really good flow of motivation that I was in. I am hoping to finally be on the mend and have my energy and determination restored.
The kids and I still managed to get out here and there during the week and on Papa's day off we went on a quest to a river in the mountains to check out a new rock hunting spot.

The water is an amazing blue green color and in the deeper spots a dark emerald, the photo really does not do it justice, it is just gorgeous.

Solomon loves visiting rivers and lakes and the ocean. He has been rockhunting with me since he was a newborn in a sling on my belly. I hope he still enjoys it when he is older, it would be great to have a common hobby we could share throughout the years as he grows into a man.

Papa thinks he found a fresh bear print in the sand.

Did someone say Bear? Time to go!

Not sure if it was or not but we didn't stick around much longer after that. It is spring afterall and I would hate to come across a very HUNGRY bear.

What a gorgeous river! I wouldn't be hanging around waiting for a hungry bear either.
