Oh, about 3 weeks ago the boys and I went for a day hike with their Uncle Bill and Uncle Clint. I took nearly 400 pictures that day and have been so overwhelmed and still just honestly having a hard time bouncing back from July that I am just now getting around to editing them. I'm a little disappointed in the quality too and maybe that's why I kept putting it off. But it was a very fun day and ultimately it is about the memories. So here goes, lots of pictures and memories....
it's a big tree!
trying to keep up
come on mom(my), can't you keep up?
this is a Promethea Moth we found on the trail that had just emerged waiting for her wings to dry and harden
Uncle Clint said he brought the cane to keep little boys in line, I thought he was joking ;)
that's okay, Uncle Bill will protect me
my little rock climber, this was about 10 feet up
in his words "King of the Mountain!"
why can't they both cooperate at the same time?
well, here's one of them looking
time for a snack break
and a water fight
2 against 1, guess who didn't win
time for splashing in the river!
thou shall not throw rocks at thy brother
yep, he had fun
he did too!
and finally, my 2 favorites from the day
We had tons of fun and can't wait to go back! I do find it pretty ironic though that we left the mountains to go hiking in the city.
