Swimming in Vermont

I had the opportunity to visit Vermont for the first time in mid July.

Showing the boys how to properly throw rocks into water.

Thousands of tadpoles greeted us.

The Hesselein boys do have their priorities.

We added to a small dam near a swimming hole, effectively raising the water a few inches. Difficult to see here, but at the far end, the depth was around 4+ feet. I think our crew almost had more kids than adults.

Unfortunately there’s a lack of scale here, but suffice to say, this mother and her egg case were unusually large to me.
