Simply the Simmonds Life

family, life and love on the lake

Planes, Cranes, and Automobiles August 31, 2008

This evening we visited a different lake then the usual one we go to. Instead of fishing, we were just going to ride around and let the boys go swimming. Our oldest son Tyler spent a rare night at home and we convinced him to go with us. For some reason he’s under the impression that we never do anything and life is so much more exciting any place else but home. We circled around and tried for several minutes to get a decent picture of the crane wading along the shore, in flight and in the tree top but the lag time on my old digital camera was just too slow. We got really close to the loon but it was getting too dark for my camera to get a good shot. (Hint to Santa: I really need a new digital camera!)
When the police plane flew overhead we teased Tyler that the cops are watching him wherever he goes. I would venture to say that he had a good time because he spent most of the evening at the bow of the boat laughing uncontrollably. As we headed back to the landing after dark I reminded him of all the beautiful wildlife we had seen tonight. “Yeah mom, we saw planes, cranes and automobiles!” he replied which caused ME to laugh uncontrollably. It fills my heart with joy to have all my family together just enjoying each other’s company. Although later it emptied my pocket book when I had to spring for Dairy Queen treats!
