Day Three - a Dud?
Day 3 hike was a bit of a dud - only because it was raining, cool and I was exhausted!
Yet, the challenge was completed - 3 days, 3 new hikes.
And an awesome accomplishment in honor of Memorial Day -
Happy to have accomplished 3 days, 3 hikes
Hiking with our borrowed dog from my small pet sitting business.
1 mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-up, 300 squats, 1 mile run
Great job Boys ... Andrew's did it in 37:33
Mom's modified Murphy (I actually did 200 pull ups)

Day Two - Memorial Day Weekend
Hike No. 2 was Wonderful.
Open Fields + Dense Forest + Muddy Creek = Perfect Hike.
All smiles. They make me smile.
Andrew and I, both armed with our cameras.
My very favorite thing to do - build a damn.
If there is a creek we cross - I damn it.
As usual, not so happy to be hiking.
Always an adventure.
Always, a smile.
Can't take a day off from gymnastics.
I love these little nuts - always an interesting image remains.
This was a great discovery from a month ago.
A wonderful surprise to celebrate 50!
Not a great picture - but it was a great weekend.
Love you - Mom & Dad!

Making Memorial Day Memories
Hike Number 1 of the Weekend ... the Adventure Begins
Almost 15 and 13 - they look so grown up.
Yes, that is Dad running ahead!
Selfies are fun!
Ever the master of the corny smile.
Some artistic photos.
Learning to drive
Thankful to have a van that is 14 years old!

Merry Christmas to all!
Our days have been wonderfully uneventful and somehow super busy.
All in preparation to send the boys to boot camp.
In April, the boys joined
Civil Air Patrol (CAP)
Andrew wanted to learn how to fly planes, and Adam wanted to yell "Yes Sir."
They have both grown to love CAP.
CAP offers a week of Encampment - a mini-boot camp that the boys do by choice.
Graduation from Encampment enables them to attend more adventurous CAP activities - such as glider school, search and rescue training, and eventually how to fly - for real.
Good luck to them and to the their Flight Sergeant!
See ya in a week boys.
