A Summer Adventure

It was such a beautiful day that we decided to take a family hike. We woke up early and hit the trail before it got too hot outside. What a great idea! Everyone had an absolute blast!

Cameron, ready an excited to go on a hike... On your mark, get set, RUN...
(Parents, keep up if you can!)

Here's Dad, AKA Pack-Mule, trying to keep up.

Lexi's holding on for dear life...
(She's got Jon by the hair - ouch!)

Cameron climbed even the steepest parts by himself...

Look how proud he is to reach to top!

(The breeze did feel nice.)

Check out the fearless climber:
Phheeww, He made it!

There was enough wind at the summit to fly a kite...
This is a picture of Cameron doing his part to help by holding the tail.
(Needless to say, the kite spent a
LOT of time on the ground.)
Good. Times. :)

Cameron and Dad braved climbing the fire tower.
Mom stayed safely on the ground with Lexi.

Even Lexi got a little exploring in on a pretty flat spot.

She's getting really mobile.

We went to the Lake afterwards to cool off...
In case you were wondering, Cameron did NOT want to share HIS boat with Lexi. She was perfectly content to splash with Mom or Dad anyway.

We stayed at the Lake until we were prunes! What a great Summer day! We'll definitely have to do that again soon!

I am glad it's still nice there. We just went to yellowstone yesterday and it was a wintry 50 degrees with a chance of snowshowers! Cameron and Lexy are getting so big!
