Family Trip To The Red River

Gotta love boys. We have three of them. Three.

As in The Three Amigos, The Three Musketeers, The Three Wise Men, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Stooges. Good things come in three! Let me break it down even further for you; that’s one more than the number of hands I have. Two (hundred) more than the number of coffees I should have,  0.6 more than the (previous) average number of children in a family, three more boys than I thought I’d have (I pictured myself as a mother of girls) and a gazillion number of lost hours of sleep :-)

I wouldn’t change any of it for the world!

A few times a year, we take ourselves off to a little cabin on the Red River in Heber Springs, AR.  In the summer months a heavy mist hovers over the river in the early hours of the morning. This particular trip however, was mid March when Spring had already made an appearance, yet the air and water were still crisp and clear.

I wanted to document this trip; to tell the story, capturing their excitement, curiosity, joy and adventurous spirits. This included the occasional mishap, too: an impalement from tree climbing and disappointment due to the unexpected arrival of snow which held us captive in the cabin! All part of the moments I will treasure.
