SUMMER RAINS: July 4th, 2010
It was the coolest 4th ever. Temperatures in the seventies! Unusually cool for Dallas Fort Worth in July:) Cloud cover and rain contributed to this. Joseph was getting ready for his high adventure scout trip and while he was getting a part for his bike at WalMart he and his friend Jacob Cole bought some cheap tubes to try and tube down "Cosby Creek" which runs behind our house in the greenbelt whenever it rains. Joe, Jacob and his little brother Sam floated on the creek and then headed for bigger adventure on Timbercreek, which was high and wide (30-40) feet, and running pretty fast. Couple of snakes sunning out on the trail added to the excitement. The boys had a lot of fun, and an exciting float down Timbercreek. I have posted an album of pictures on my facebook. What a great 4th of July!! This was actually Saturday July 3rd . . . fireworks that evening to top everything off, plus Joe and Jacob had a wonderful time at their scout high adventure at Broken Bow Lake. Nothing better than water in the summer!
