Take a Hike!

Well, we loaded up the trailer and the kids for Memorial weekend.

We went to our usual place and actually, it felt like we never left for the winter.

Tyler and Blake had a "bee in their bonnet" to go hiking up the mountain across from camp.

They had seen some sort of animal up the mountain and wanted to check it out.

So, up the mountain they went!

While on the mountain they saw the alleged animals and it was a couple of BADGERS!

Those little stinkers can be mean so, they decided to cut the hike short.

They actually went on a hike a few times, one of which I braved.

Here are some pictures from one of the hikes:

On the way up.

Of course, power lines where in the way of all the pictures

Almost there.
Considering I was in camp and they where up the mountain, these pictures are decent.
Sydney was upset that she didn't get to go.
The boys said they could hear her screaming on the hike.

Stopping to enjoy the view and take pics.

Daisy was waiting for them to come back.

Syd and Daisy spotted them!
We had a great time camping and it was a great start to our summer.
I'm sure there will be many more hikes but,
next time I'll have to take pictures from the other end of the hike.

The Parachute

We decided it would be fun to find and buy an old parachute to take camping for shade.
At first we tried the good ol' Smith and Edwards....
They had some but, they seemed a little to pricey for our liking.
So, Justin did some searching on-line and was able to find a good deal on a used cargo parachute. When we got it, the kids where way excited and wanted to break it in right away. Here's a few pictures of the fun:

Now we'll just need to figure out how to hang this huge thing up while camping. I'm sure that will be tons of fun!
