Makes My Monday--Chittenango Falls

What "Makes My Monday" this week is the fun family time we had on Sunday.
We visited Chittenango Falls, a local state park, enjoyed a picnic and then walked to the bottom of the falls.
This is the overlook at the top of the 167 foot falls.
A little rest before starting the walk down to the bottom of the falls.
Laura and Daddy, about halfway down.
It is a beautiful spot, but the kids aren't as interested with this side of the bridge,
they wanted to get into Chittenango creek and search for "stuff."
Laura gave the bad example of being the first with her shoes off.

At this point, most of the shoes were still on,
but not for long. Mommy caved, and everyone played in the water.

I love little feet!
Dad stood guard, and no one fell in!
We did have a problem with Kim and Grace's dresses, but Daddy solved this problem. Luckily, they always wear shorts under their dresses.
Nine year old boys
and four year old boys are alot alike.
Daddy threw a last rock and then we had to head for home.
Great Sundays always Make my Monday.

What a beautiful sight. Have you ever done any panning for gold with the kids? That looked like a perfect spot to try.

Oh Joann, like you, I am often slow to "cave" but ever so grateful when the occasion turns out as spectacularly as yours seems to have done! LOVE the new header image and all these wonderful images.

Thanks for playing along and Making My Monday!

This looks like a perfect day to me. Family together. Everyone enjoying the day. And mom caving in. Sounds pretty terrific to me. But tell me, did you get your feet wet too? LOL God Bless Joann, thinking of you! :-)
