Morris Brook Farm was pretty lively the past two days.  Three great-nephews arrived for a sleep-over and it was not-stop activity.

It started yesterday with a trip to a local creek.  Grab the gold pans and start shovelling the sand in.

Then down to the creek to add some water,

and start swirling and looking for gold.

Once all the gold was found, it was time for the three Dudes (or is that four?) to build a dam across the creek.

The water rises as the dam goes up.  I don’t think those boots are going to keep the water out!

So what do you do once your boots are full?

IMG_4942

That’s right.  Sit on the ground, raise your leg and let the water run out your boot, and all over your pants and shirt.

That didn’t stop the others from doing the same thing…first one…

and then the other.

So now your shirt is wet and doesn’t feel so nice.

Might as well take it off!

That feels better, now you can really enjoy the water.

Oh oh, looks like we have one hold out.  Come on take that shirt off!

That’s more like it, three shirtless dudes enjoying the creek.

Today brought a whole new bunch of adventures.  An early morning walk with a little rock climbing thrown in.

Wait a minute…some one else likes to climb rocks too!

Now what could possibly be so interesting?

You probably can’t see it, but it is a helicopter drone.  I tried to get pictures of it in flight but wasn’t very successful.

Pictures or not, the three dudes spent some time flying (and crashing) the helicopter.

The three dudes (or is it four?) then headed off to the cabin across the field.  I didn’t find out until later what they were doing over there.

Check it out!

What do you think? A future in the music industry?

Then it was off to the sand pit.

Dump trucks, loaders and shovels.

What to do when your shoes fill up with sand?

IMG_4981

Take them off, of course.  I think he would be pretty good at the tree pose in yoga.  No problem standing on one foot!

IMG_4983

Bare feet work so much better in the sand.

All that shovelling and road building worked up a bit of an appetite.

Time for the three (or is that four?) dudes to have a break and a snack.

Pretty scary looking bunch!

Last of all, a visit to Morris Brook Farm wouldn’t be complete without a quad ride.

Don’t worry, the fourth Dude was driving!

And that ended the visit…the three Dudes went home to their Moms and Dads with lots of stories to tell.

A great time was had by all…we’ll have to do it again soon!
