Our trip to the mountains ~

 

DSCN5276

We live in a state that has very few hills.  If my memory serves me correctly, the only mountain that we have is around 200ish feet.  So when we went north this past weekend, David and I were excited that our children would get to see some mountains.

 David and I made this same trip a few years ago for an anniversary trip and we found this park that had a mountain to hike and a beautiful stream that you had to cross to get to this mountain.  We hiked this same mountain with Sunshine Girl in a carrier some four years ago.

After we hiked up the mountain a while, we came back to the stream and everyone just played and played in the cool water.  I really think that we all had just as much fun at this park as we did at the theme park.  Actually, I know that we did because they keep telling me how great of a day it was.

I splashed around in the stream a bit but mainly followed everyone around with a camera & helped people climb around on slippery rocks.  And now, I’m going to subject you to tons of pictures!  :-)

  3. Thanks y'all! It was such a beautiful place. We did not want to leave. I wish that I could have set up a little home there. :) We do plan on going back with my parent's RV and camping soon.

    Amanda ~ This little family was filled with joy that weekend. We needed that day in nature so badly. It is amazing how you can see God in all of that beauty He created and how His glory, love, & joy can just radiate from your face. It was a great, great day!
