We’re taking a hike up Mt. Zion because there are NO SPORTS games today! Wow! So I cut the boys loose (only Ben was on board, Sam gripes before every hike “Mom, you’re SUCH a hiking DORK!”) and took off. We had a great time. This is me finding out, though, that Sam has decided to hike WITHOUT SOCKS in shoes WITHOUT SOLES (my fault – he needs new shoes) on a day with 30% chance of rain! It all worked out ok, but hopefully he’ll make better choices. Oddly, I had a long conversation with Ben about proper shoe choice and Sam must have thought none of that applied. 😉
More pictures and the full story in the album…
We hiked past the summit to check out the ledges which offer great views to the Olympics. We were not disappointed. The spitting rain stopped for us to enjoy some time up there.
Skittles and hot chocolate, what could be better?
I have a picture of this same ledge on Labor Day two years ago!
Lunch in Quilcene followed by ice cream cones and basking in the sun. Wonderful 🙂 Thanks, boys! More annotated photos in the album…
“Ice cream cone of JUSTICE!”
Two years ago – Aug 2013.
I’m imagining my arms wrapped around those boys with them kicking and squirming and yelling, “eeeeeuuuuuu”! What great guys — they fill in all the spaces of the descriptions of boys at this age, but mom is undaunted, takes it in stride, and knows, “this too shall pass”! Now I’m going to the album.
Richard and I just watched all the pictures together and had laughs galore. We love your annotations! Wish we could comment on each picture, but this’ll have to do. You are darling on the pony!! Love the misty fall pictures, the gas tank/engine light moments, hockey game videos, the Sam can get a puck in vs food in his mouth (LOL), Davey in his new hockey shirt looks very cool, it’s very late now, so my memory is fading, but we totally loved seeing your life and can’t wait to get another big gulp of it when we’re up there. How’s that for a run-on sentence! Love you all like crazy, Mommy
Phase two always solves problems ????
