Tarzan the Monkey Man

Anyone remember that line? Well, my 51 year old husband, 2 days prior to trying to be Evil Kinevil, thought he would be Tarzan. This picture isn't the best as it's been cropped so you could see him. This is at a place called Krause Springs outside of Dripping Springs which is outside of Austin! It's a natural spring fed pool. Natalie tried it, too, but I don't think there's a picture of her doing this. Bethany & I were swimming around, so Grandma (Ruth, Phil's mom) was trying to figure out how to use the camera. I think she did a pretty good job for never having touched this crazy contraption we have!

We saw these huge trees that we assume are Cypress trees. For US they seem huge. Maybe not so much for those of you who have real trees. We don't have real trees here, we have tall shrubs. San Antonio is not big tree friendly, I guess. Anyway, we found this one that was hollowed out. You can see the girls standing in it. I can just hear Giselle from Enchanted, after being asked if she needed a place to sleep, saying, "I don't know. Maybe a nearby meadow or a hollow tree." Robert then asks, "A hollow tree?" Giselle's reply, "Or a house full of dwarves. I hear they're very hospitable."

We must resemble the famous dwarves from Snow White, as Natalie has referred to us as Bashful (Bethany), Sleepy (Mommy), Grumpy (Daddy) and Sneezy (Natalie). Daddy says she is the 8th dwarf, Clumsy.

Good night!

Ouch, those ribs sound painful. So glad Phil wasn't more seriously hurt or worse. (shuddering)

LOL, Betty! I was just coming here to do that! I need to scan them, but will post. I really would want stamps of these, but maybe I can cut & paste & use them!
