I am returning from my blogging hiatus, sorry for not keeping the blog up-to-date. This summer has been a lot of fun. Brent has been able to take off several days a month to hang out with us and take us on special outings. In June, we headed up to Hanging Rock for a day of hiking, boating, and swimming of course. We first decided to hike up the big trail (I mean the one that takes you up to the top of the rock). O was such a trooper and lasted most of the way. B had to carry him when the trail got a little too rocky. Don't worry, we didn't go to the top, we stopped when we thought we probably shouldn't go any further. Next, we went to the row boats and enjoyed the nice calm water. There weren't a lot of people there, so we pretty much had it to ourselves. O was cute, he wanted to help B so much rowing the boat. Even though it was actually making it harder on B, he still acted like O was doing all of the work. He tries to be such a big boy! After working up a sweat in the boat, we decided to go swimming in the cold water (I always remember that water being cold, even when I was a kid). O had a blast and we did too! We love family time!
