any time there are boys, rocks and water. . .the skipping must commence. . .

these two little cuties entertained themselves for quite some time. . .

I guarantee you the one in the orange shorts is weighted

down with at least ten pounds of treasures in his pockets. . .

and finally. . .the entire sand bar is exposed. . .

quite the little exodus headed that direction.

Did I feel the need to walk over there?

Noooooo. . .no at all. . .

it’s the same rocks over there that it is over here. . .

but I sure liked watching everyone else do it. . .
