Fun Family Weekend!!!

So this weekend we went on our Annual family hike...and what fun we had! We didn;t go last year I think because it eas too cold for the baby, but this year the baby is almost 17 months and the weather was absolutely gorgeous! We had sooo much fun and Mela walked/climbed the whole way up...just a mile and a half, but there were some big rocks to get over and bumpy terraine...no to mention big bolder with water between them...the end result was definately worth it though! Here are some pics!

Here is Andrew, Bella (in Snuggly, she did have fun, was ust getting used to the snuggly!) And Mela Walking...she was such a trooper. Walked the whole way...had to convince her to drop that walking stick as she kept tripping on it!

Here is Mela and her Papa having a snack...triscuits...yum while enjoying the sounds and views of the waterfall...we sat on some huge rocks right at the base...there were more falls bellow us too, just little ones though

David stricking a pose...gotta love the 4.5 year old poses! He's such a character and a joy to be around. What a blessing God has given us!

And here is our view during lunch...or should I say snack! The speck at the top is my nephew Tyler...he said it was dizzying up there...wish I could of gone, but by this time it was WAY past Bella's nap time and she was nto happy anymore! So back in the snuggly for the trip down and thank goodness she fell asleep!

And this picture was taken at the apple Harvest Festival at Graves Mountain Lodge... I was so busy smelling the funnel cake and apple doughnuts that I totally forgot to pull out the camera until the kids were totally wet! The water was chilly, but I guess they didn't mind! It was a gorgeous day! Aren't they cute!!!

And here is our little poser girl! Whenever she sees the camera she says "Mom, take a piture of me!" and poses and smiles! I think we are in big trouble!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share some pictures of our glorious weenend! I have a card for you tomorrow! We are also going to the pumpkin patch tomorrow so more family fun pics to come!

Have a wonderful day!

God Bless you!
