|Thank goodness for raised beds|
|The lettuce got a little bit beat up|
|The potatoes weren't fazed by the water because they are planted on a slight slope|
|We're not sure how much corn got washed away, but some did...|
After checking the garden I went to see how high the creek was.
It was high. Just for comparison here's a before and after of the tiny island in the middle of the creek. It's usually about 3 feet above water.

The stick to the right of the middle of the picture is the top of the small tree on the island.

|Across the creek on "The Sitting Rock" as the twins call it|
|It's actually shallow enough to wade across|
|Gabe just floats|
|Aislyn and Frankie are best friends|
|Lily, before she jumped in|
While the big kids were at school we took Lily and Frankie out and let them pick flowers. We have thousands of bluebonnets and indian paintbrush, and the girls loved bringing us handfuls.
|Frankie loves flowers|
|Our pretty girls|
|She REALLY loves flowers|
|Boris had to get in on the flower pictures|
|Frankie got to play with the chicks|
Ian wanted to make sure I posted some pictures of the treasures we found at the creek. I have to say, we do find pretty cool stuff down there.

|A piece of fossilized piece of seashell|
