Dierke's Lake

Yesterday (Saturday) Tyson spent most of the day outside working on his truck and vegetable oil kit. He came in the house around 6pm hot and sunburned on his back and said, "Let's go cool off at the lake." So we pack a few things on hopped in the car and went to Dierke's Lake. We were there from about 6:30 to 9:45pm (they close the gates at 10, which Tyson and the boys have been locked in before cause they stayed past 10). It was a beautiful evening a a way to cool off from the heat. And for all you Twin Falls residents a little FYI, if you stay late a Dierke's the skunks come out, and are NOT shy. Wyatt and I were starting to pack up when one came charging at us, and Tyson's yelling from the dock "Don't Move!" Ya right, the thing was 4 feet from us, Wyatt and I ran up the grass, and luckily didn't get sprayed. Oh what a fun evening. I especially enjoy Tyson being about to play and do things with us, unlike he was able to when we lived in California. That is probably the best part about our move to Twin Falls, ID, is the time we now get to spend together as a family.

Wyatt mostly played in the sand and in the water

Hunter spent most of his time catching blue gill fish off the dock, and made a new friend.

When Tyson wasn't playing with the boys in the water he was doing back flips off the rocks.

Of course we had to do a little fishing (now that it's hot all you really catch off the dock are tiny blue gills.
