Outdoor Wednesday-Plus a Reminder!

Today is Wednesday and we all know that that means.....it's a great day to be outdoors!

Last Sunday Big Daddy and I took our two smaller children to Oak Mountain State Park. There we met Big Daddy's twin brother and his wife and kids for a fun family day. We fished and the kids rode the BMX bike track, as well as rode some trails around the park. Sister Sledge would like for me to preface the BMX shots by saying that she is aware the bike was to small for her, but the boys wouldn't go down the huge hill first so she blazed a trail and they followed suit. No one will put Sister Sledge in a corner! Or tell her she can't ride the BMX trail.
It was a gorgeous day to be outdoors! Here are some snapshots from our weekend...


Happy Outdoor Wednesday!
To see more outdoor post visit our gracious host, Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer!
I want to remind everyone about Thrifty Thursday, happening here at Bloggeritaville tomorrow.
Thrifty Thursday is a show and tell of sorts. It is time for you to showcase your thrifty find. It can be an old find or a new one. It might be something that you found at a thrift store, a consignment store, flea market, garage/yard sale, dumpster diving, even antique stores. It's it was a thrifty find, then it meets the requirements.I am not picky, It can be a great pair of boots & a killer vintage dress, jewelry, home decor, even fishing lures. It is your thrifty find. Tell me about it.Where did you find it? What is it? What do you plan to do with it or how do you plan to use it in your home? Do you want to sell it? Thrifty Thursday's are about the thrill of the hunt...and the treasure you found.

So....do show and tell! Be sure to grab a button and link back.

Don't forget to come back here tonight at 8PM and paste your direct hyperlink to your Thrifty Thursday post here at Mr. Linky.

Have a fabulous day, y'all! Leave me a "roadmap".

A good time was had by all.
Let's hope Mr. Linky behaves for you as others have been having such trouble this week.

That bike was pretty small for Sister Sledge, but she did a Great Job!

Looks like a really nice trip.

Chandy said...

Go Sister Sledge! I love BMX bikes, actually they're the only kind I can ride. LOL

Anyway, your dh has a twin? How cool is that? Love that place you went to hopefully I can visit it someday...
