But on the other hand, Nik is away for a week so I am actually getting stuff done that has been on my to-do list forever. Like clean out that drawer under the microwave that is stuffed with old batteries and salad forks. I also organized my freezer and got rid of the two-year old bag of cranberries. So it's not all bad.
Also, I finally managed to download a bunch of pictures from my camera. Here are some photos from our favorite hiking spot.
It is kind of hard to make out in the picture below but the trail actually runs right up the middle of the stream. The water runs on both sides of the trees in the middle of the photo and so you must jump from rock to rock in order to not get wet. It is pretty challenging but also fun on a hot day.
This is the water hole that marks the end of the trail for us. The water is icy cold and there is always a snake living in the tree roots to one side. But otherwise it is a perfect spot for taking lunch and cooling off.
This is another picture of the water hole that gives some idea of the scope.
A picture of Lunch. Because it is all about eating when you have four boys!
