Sometimes you don't get what you go after

A few weeks ago I went on a hike along Cottonwood Creek with two of my grandsons. It wasn't a time for photography, but I saw a spot I wanted to come back to and shoot. A time when the lighting was better and less distractions.
 It's fishing season and there was a full parking lot. Lots of people, but they were all nice.
 Macy got the salmon fever when I wasn't watching at first. I told her she had to stop. Her license didn't cover fishing.
 But once we got to where we were going, she was very patient with me. I guess the calming of the creek rushing by had her mesmerized.
 I still didn't get the shot that I wanted though or I just wasn't happy with my results. I'll make it back another time and try again. Patience is what it's about.
I explained that to Macy. I think she got it.

Two grandson's for the weekend

This was the first weekend that any of the grandkids could spend the weekend. Nick & Stacey took it easy on me and just gave me the boys. It was still a working weekend, but OK, we still played a little.
 I think I got a couple of volunteers to cut the grass the rest of the summer.
 They liked my homemade waffles for breakfast.
 We took Sunday off and went for a hike out at the Palmer Hay Flats along Cottonwood Creek. It had just stopped raining so it was nice and humid. I think they still had a good time.
 There were all kinds of things along the trail to climb or jump on.
 Macy lead the way a lot. But at 74°, it was hot for her.
 The boys survived the weekend. We'll see if Macy does after her nap.
