A day trip

Dad was gone last week and that is always a hardship. I've always said it's a good thing there's two of us, because one of us just isn't enough. By the time Sunday rolled around, I knew we needed to get out of the house to preserve our sanity. Although being in the car is also a test of sanity!

We drove up the Alpine Loop and went to Cascade Springs. It was a perfect day. It had rained in the morning, so it was cooler than usual. The children loved running along the paths and even spotted a snake as we walked.

A was overjoyed at having to sit in such close proximity to L.

A took this picture. I thought it was awfully artistic, and such a beautiful view!

O wouldn't hold anyone's hand but A's. It was sweet to watch him with her.

By the time we headed back to the car, the clouds had cleared a bit and it had heated up. The kids were all whining about how hot it was. One gentleman on the path asked where the kids were headed in such a hurry. When I responded that they wanted to get in the air-conditioned car, he asked where we were from. Sadly, we are close to home, I just have wimpy children.
