Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day Weekend

We spent the long weekend up in the mountains visiting Oma and Opa  We all had lots of fun!  As usual we went hiking.  This time Josh continued on longer than the boys and I did.  He did a 13 mile hike with full pack to practice for his 30 mile hike coming up in October.  Obviously the boys wouldn’t last that long so we headed home and picked him up a couple house later.

If you look closely in the photo above you may spot a copperhead snake.  Jack came across this snake when he went a little ahead of Josh and me (yes, he knows better than to do that but clearly it didn’t stop him).  The next thing we knew is we heard Jack screaming about a snake.  We ran up to him and saw this guy.  He was already past the snake and thus safe, but just seeing it scared him to death.  The rest of us went through the woods to get around the snake since he was right on the path.

Jack’s Birthday

Jack’s Birthday

It’s been over a month now but here are a few photos from Jack’s birthday. He had lots of fun celebrating at home and then on a long weekend in the mountains with Oma and Opa. 

   
   
   
    
    
It was an action packed weekend with a birthday picnic at Oskar Blues and  Oreo torte for dessert.  We went apple picking, hiking, camping and rock climbing!  The boys love the Oma and Op live in such an awesome location. We love all the outdoor activities we do up there!

Hard to believe Jack is now 8 years old. Won’t be long before that tall boy towers over me!
