Crestview Creek

We finally made it over to the creek here in Crestview. I say finally because I had originally heard about it last summer while I was in Colorado and then totally forgot about till some other gals mentioned it recently. Sam and I were all prepared with lunch, beach chairs, swimsuits, sunscreen, and towels and 2 toddlers in tow to go last Friday but changed our minds when we got there. For some reason it seemed a bit creepy to us when we pulled up by ourselves on Friday morning. I don't know if it was the weather which was making everything look dark and gray or if we are just a couple of chickens, but either way we opted to wait till one or both of the guys could come with us. It just so happens that Sat. worked out well for all of us and so we loaded up the car once again and headed to the creek. I don't know why it seemed so creepy on Friday because on Saturday it looked just fine and I think Andrew and Brian though we were crazy. Anyhow, we had a lot of fun. The water is very shallow and perfect for the kids to splash around in. They played in the water and in the sand and even took a little tubing trip down the "river". Its awesome that the creek is so close and this is definitely a place we will be going back to. In fact, we might head over there tomorrow!

Ahh, this is fun! The water was really chilly to me but it didn't seem to bother Abby at all!
