One of the Most Important Skills to Learn

Skipping Rocks
April 2, 2011
The day was absolutely gorgeous, so we headed out to soak up some Vitamin D.

After riding the train, we walked back over to the stream, river (whatever it is) in order to practice the art of - skipping rocks.

Side note here - Julien told me 147 times, NOT to take his picture - so don't expect to find him in these pictures - he was too crabby for the paparazzo.

Addie refused to do anything other than sit on the big rock, people watch and try her hand at skipping rocks.

Julien was trying to show her which rocks to look for and she finally found one - tiny little rock - not exactly prime rockage, but she was pleased.

Good grief - she cracks me up. 
Sitting with her legs crossed - people watching.
Aaaahhh, the moment when she was so spectacularly pleased with herself - because she had found a leaf.
She was "asking" Chris if that too, could be skipped across the water (in my mind, that is what she was "asking").
I managed to get her to look at the camera - for one half second.
Trying her best to throw the rock into the water...
and happy to retrieve more rocks from Chris.
She was "asking" Julien something - I imagine it was his opinion on her awesome rock throwing abilities.
