Took my boy out today for a little R&R. We went out to a local creek and made a fire, ate lunch, and just goofed off.

He had fun, as did I. I like to get out for a bit just him and me. Heres some pics.....

Looks like you had a great day with your son. He looks to be about the same age as my granddaughter (damn, I`m old :eek:) If you need to use that Tram for a spatula, you need a big belly Nessmuk. ;)
Enjoy your time with your son, they grow up way too fast.

Richard-- that depends. When the water is up there are, but its pretty low right now. I seen few small ones, and alot of crayfish, but nothing big enough to bother with. I have pulled some huge snappers out of there though. Its wonderfull when the waters up. Its very clear and cold.

I'm jealous. Fine looking lad and wonderful scenery!

I need to find some areas by me that I can take my 7yr old son and play with fire.

Most of the trails and suck we hike or geocache on are ran by the IDNR (Illinois Dept of Natural Resources I think) and last I knew, fires were prohibited.

I'll have to look into trying to find some areas close to home I guess.
