We went to downtown Hendersonville today. we had a fun time walking the streets and seeing all the neat stores. I got to paint my own pottery! I chose a BIG dragon and a little dragon.
Such a goof!
Daddy even helped paint!
Thanks Grandma Jo for getting a family photo.
We headed back towards the car and we saw a gem and mineral museum. I wanted a geode. I love geodes (thanks Uncle Matt for that one!). They had a HUGE claw to break the geode! Very cool!
After it was cracked open I got to hold it and then look at under a light that made it glow green.
Cracking open the second one.
On the way back to the house we stopped off at Bent Creek to play in the river where it joins the French Broad.
I had a fun time wading around trying to catch things in the water.
I caught a whirly-gig-beetle.
I also caught some sort of skipper type bug.
We came home and FINALLY went up to my fort. I had a blast dragging sticks around and making a huge pile.
I decided I was building a FORT. Emmerson was my helper.
Daddy helped snap a few dead branches off of the trees so I had more sticks.
More being silly.
I was walking with a huge stick and not watching where I was going and I tripped. This is the result.
