The lake was lovely
I took the boys to the lake yesterday. We had planned on doing a little fishing, but we got there and I fed them some lunch, and then it started raining. Not just a little rain, no it was like someone was scooping buckets full of water out of the lake and dumping them on us. We were standing in a little shelter watching it wash the hillside away, and almost a camper and a boat. The boys decided we should check the worms to make sure they were ok. I gave them each a worm, and the middle one stuck him under his tongue, because that is how every good fisherman hooks the big one. The baby wanted to eat his worm, but wanted to wash the dirt off it first. It rained like that for about 45 minutes, and then cleared to a drizzle. We had a lot of fun really, and the boys decided we really do have hurricanes in Wyoming. We watched some Canadian geese with babies, you know when it rains they look straight up at the sky. We saw a beautiful buck mule deer, he is going to have a huge spread. The deer are so pretty this time of year they are in velvet, and it has been a good spring for them they are sleek and shiny. We saw some pelicans, yes we have them here. The boys always think they are funny looking, and they are. We also got to see the golden eagles, we have 2 mating pair out there right now, they are awesome. My favorite of all the birds of prey, you know when eagles mate they fly as high as they can, and free fall until they almost hit the ground. It was a great day, even if we didn't' get to fish.
