A picnic, fishing, and mushrooms


Kevin, Allyson, and Kaleb have been going to Lake Iowa a lot this past week searching the forests for Morel mushrooms. During this time of the year, finding Morel mushrooms is a BIG pastime in Iowa...I don't really get it...probably because I think mushrooms are disgusting. They picked what's in the bowl in the picture above on Thursday evening...and ate them all that night too! :)

Today, we all went to Lake Iowa, and Kaleb found those two mushroom in the above picture. I took the photo right before he picked them.
Travis had fun climbing on big fallen trees...


Then we headed toward the lake for a delightful lunch...


Allyson had fun climbing trees and fishing...she is putting a worm on her hook...
Travis tried some fishing too. He would dip his stick down into the lake and bring up slimy green stuff...and yell, "I caught a fish, I caught a fish!

This place looks so beautiful where you go to the lake. Is is too cold to swim yet?

Candace, it was hard for me to really enjoy any of these pictures..all I saw was 3 pairs of cheeks that I wanted to kiss on for an hour.

YUMMY! Those shrooms like absolutely scrumptious! Wish I had been there to help eat them. Except they would have never made it home...would have just eaten them as I picked them. That sandwich you all are eating looks delicious too...I'm starving right now! I like your shades, Candace.
