Saturday morning we got up early and went hiking. By 'we' I mean Chris, Nick, Ben, and me. The boys were super tired because their friend had come over Friday before I left and they stayed up most of the night talking to him. Ben almost didn't make it because he had to go up to campus and the plan had been to meet up with two of Chris' friends from DC - but they bailed and we were able to wait for Ben to finish up.
When I first got back from Arizona, Nick asked if I was going to compare everything to Havasupai and the Grand Canyon (I guess I had been doing that a lot). So when we started the hike and I looked up at the "falls" I was like, "I've screwed myself over, I should have never gone to Havasupai." I mean - you remember the pictures of the falls there right? So here are the falls at Crabtree.
|We found a snake - well, Nick almost stepped on it - that counts as 'finding' right|
|The boys are trying to figure out what to do with the snake. Should we pick it up with a stick and toss it further in the woods, warn others about it (oh yeah - they thought it was a copperhead for a while). They just left it.|
|This is our sad face - why are we sad? Not sure|
|World's shortest hike|
|Ben showing us how he looks in a hat because he doesn't think he looks good in them. I warned him I have a thing for guys in baseball hats.|
|We found this pay phone at the head of the trail. Ben remembers how it works - I think Chris was checking for service first.|
|She's got this cake under control|
Then it was back to the boys to get ready for the Halloween dance at church. We decided to go as rock, paper, scissors.
|Christian made these scissors for Ben - VERY last minute. He's so ready to be a dad.|
|I did Ben's make-up and I think it went straight to his head - look at him modeling|
