Life's a Beach

What a great day we had at the State Park (Tawakoni State Park) . DH thought it would be fun to go the lake for a 'cookout' and we all thought it was a great idea. There had been news stories lately too of a giant spiderweb along the nature trail out there so I wanted to go check it out.

Of course, I had to take a lot of pictures...what else is new??

Here is DH and DD striking a pose. And the 'little fella' who can't wait for the food to be cooked!

Don't know why but I just love this pic of Austin. And had to fit Matt in too.


Just thougth this grasshopper was sooo cool looking. Almost looks like an alien to me.

Here is one pic of a spider web cluster that we saw. The majority of my pics didn't turn out well because of the lighting but you get the idea. Click here for a news article about it.

And we left, literally, just in time. We rounded the corner, leaving the park and it started to rain. When we got home, and inside, it started to pour. Phew.......just in time!!
Hope everyone else had as great a Labor Day as we did.

How neat - I saw those news stories. I would have had to go and see the spiderweb for myself too (if I were close enough!) Nature is beautifully fascinating, isn't it?

It looks like you had a nice time! Those are the memories we talk about later... ('Remember that time we went to?...') ;) That grasshopper doesn't look real! It does look like an alien. I don't think I've ever seen one yellow like that, and with purple-ish eyes... The spiderweb is cool, too. I wouldn't want to get too close though... (heebie jeebies...)

Great pictures of your family! I love the little grasshopper, he DOES look a bit like an alien! ;)
No way would I have been able to get close enough to that spider web to take any kind of photo of it. ewwwwwwww
