Caution, Hikers Crossing

Greetings friends and family,

Easton and Layla are quickly turning in hiking nuts.  Kendra mentioned her desire to go and you'd have thought the twins won the lottery based on their exuberant response.  We wore long pants this time as a result of scraped knees during the last trip up and down the mountain.  They stopped and posed mid-way up the steepest part.   

We were there right before sunset, which allowed us to take advantage of the shadows for shade going up and great background scenery for photo opportunities at the top.

We even convinced a random hiker to take picture of the 4 Webbs.  See all of the cars lined up on the street below?  It shows the steepness of the mountain side we tackled.

Kendra and I spent most of the way up and down saying, "slow down, please!" because they were getting a little too brave with their pace.  We made it all the way back to the ground level by our car without a single incident.  Then Layla tripped over a rock and sliced her hand open.  Nothing bad though.  It was fixed with hydrogen peroxide, Neosporin, and a Snow White princess band-aid.

Kendra mentioned my hair was getting kind of shaggy and recommended I shave it off just for something different.  I agreed and she cut it off that night!  At church many people didn't even recognize me.  It was a strange feeling to be treated like a new guy...  kind of cool in a way.  Kyle saw Kendra's handy work at church and asked to join in the free haircut coupon day.  She agreed and he joined the summer cut club!

I have my own vacation day of adventure coming up tomorrow so it's time to get a few hours of sleep.  I'll be dreaming of snow...

See you soon!
