They did all this by themselves.
Even though it was warmer the creek was still frozen over, which made for some fun.
The creek is only ankle deep so there was nothing to worry about.
The dog was having a blast playing with this log that was sticking out of the ground.
The boys also showed me the tombstones that they found one day while exploring. They aren't on our property; just a little bit off the property line.
The one above was Jr. McKillen, age 8yrs and 8mos. Died 1856.
This one reads Charles McKillen, age 25yrs. Died 1859.
Someday we hope to find some more information on who these people were and why they lived such short lives.
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. "
