Yesterday Martha and I went to Chimney Bluffs with the kids for a hike. It was the perfect day for it....refreshingly cooler than normal so we didn't get too hot. As you can see Martha is a very good climber, however coming down was a different story. We had such a great day together. Hopefully she doesn't have too many bruises. Lol!

Great candid shots! Glad you had a great day together before school starts.

I look like a jack-o-lantern sliding down that slope. How can I lose twenty pounds before October? I don't want to turn into a pumpkin!

It was a fun day and the pictures are fun too. I was doing fine easing my way down that hill until I heard the branch start to snap... and hey, Alysa went down on her butt too.

You do not look like a "jack-o-lantern"! I wish there was an easy way to lose weight, but food tastes way too good. I don't remember thinking about eating so much when I was a kid...maybe it's because I try not to think about it. Lol!

Yeah you're right, Alysa did go down on her butt...a lot.

I love these pictures! They made me giggle... I would've laughed out loud, but Adam is sleeping. I should be sleeping too, but instead I am wide awake.

I'm glad you had fun!

I was just there last weekend...and I hate to inform you that there is an easier way. If you walk a little farther down past the guardrail...there is a much less steep place to walk down.

Priscilla- I know exactly where you're talking about. We hiked through the woods though for quite a ways and then came down. It really wasn't bad, Martha was just getting silly. Her ankle was starting to hurt which might have made her a little unsteady.

Priscilla, I wasn't going down I was climbing back up (to get the camera). We went down "a little farther down past the guardrail".

And where you are flat on your back you were coming down. That was right after the tree incident.

Hahaha! Too funny!!

Reminds me of when Martha and I went hiking last summer.... She took me on all kinds of STEEP trails and what-not. YIKES! Going up was much easier than going down - especially sporting my camera which I'm way over protrective of. She was always laughing at me and thought it quite funny!

Oh how funny! Looks like you had a good time. I love to goof around with my siblings too. Isn't that the best?
