Bye-Bye Summer Vacation...................

Good bye summer break. We'll miss you. You were a good summer break. Sniff, sniff...........
So many memories, it seems like only yesterday we were saying good bye to school for the year. *Sigh*
To cap off our summer we rented a cabin up at Hume Lake for a week. We just got back and started school on Monday. A week at Hume means so much to do.......

There were tire swings to swing from.......

Yahhoooooo!!!!!

Higher Daddy!

My mom went with us and so of course we tortured her every chance we got. :)
"Look Grandma, one hand!"


I made Dan take a turn. There is just something about flying through the air on a swing that reminds you how good it is to be a kid.

There were baby ducks to follow around and feed..............(6 to be exact)

We climbed to the top of Buck Rock fire look out. It is 172 steps straight up the face of those rocks.........the look out sways on the rock if the wind is blowing.......
We had a picnic at the bottom first................

The view is SOOOO worth the climb (and fear of falling) :)

Yup' it was high, the signs don't lie.

Did I mention my mom went with us and we tortured her? She is not a fan of heights so maybe this was a little scary of a climb for her. She did it though and was still smiling after.

These dandelions were GINORMOUS!!

That has to count for a LOT of wishes right?


There was camp to go to every morning and night............

Major photo ops............

Great reminders...................

Self portraits to take...........

Sister dips in the lake.........

Stand up paddle board to master........

If you have never done this activity might I suggest a "non-blustery" day?

Father daughter canoe dates out to the dam.

Ummmm....more self portraits?

Rocks to jump from.........

Mama deers who brought their baby around for dinner on our back deck each night......

Time with Grandma at King's river..............

Time to ponder life.............

Caves to explore............

Give me your, "I'm so excited vacation is almost over and we get to start school face!"

This is the cabin we rented. See the stairs to the right? I tripped and fell down those face first. Carrying a chair. Yup' I'm good.

Dives to master.............

Running front flips to master..........(just not this picture, OUCH!)

Cowgirl theme nights at camp to dress up for............

Time to hang out at the Hume Burger joint............

Ahhhhh....more photo ops..............

Silly pictures to take...........

Good bye Hume Lake........

Good bye summer vacation...............

Until we meet again.........*sniff*
