Going for another hike




We are ambitious :-)




Going up




Nice creeks




Stream crossings




A waterfall along the way




Reaching King's Creek Falls




A snack break




King's Creek below us




Family on the bridge




Heading up the hills




Climbing on boulders




A first lake - not quite swimmable




Kept going - via a shortcut - to the next lake




Pappy in




Tamara out




The boys building a harbor




Philip on Pappy




Exploring around the lake




Pappy went higher up




While the boys played and Mommy swam in the lake




Pappy perfecting their kayak




Lunch on the rocks




Shortcut back




Through the forest




Meeting up with the official trail




Back to King's creek




Mommy with flowers from Philip




A dragonfly on Peter's new hat




Philip needed help the last uphill




Good job everyone!




Back at the house




For the final marshmallow roasting




Tamara dressed up against the mosquitos




Seems like this boy likes it




And this one too




And Pappy too




Silly boys in the morning




Heading out for a bike ride




To see the solar eclipse




It is starting




I can see it with these super glasses




Mommy ran with them again




Let's get back to the house




To see it even better




Sharper shadows




The sun getting smaller




Pappy




Mommy




Without glasses




With glasses




Eclipse complete, starting our long drive home




A mini golf stop in Fairfield




Where is Peter's ball?




Hmm...




Water fun in the heat




Seatbelts buckled




The race is on




Mommy and Peter leading




Pappy and Philip got a slow car




A nice vacation with family rules we can live by
