While two of our cousins were up, we somehow came up with the idea to climb a mountain about 15 minutes from us. It was my mom, Beth, me, Bekah, Isaiah, Noelle, Hannah, Tim, and our cousins Kayla and Ben. Although it was fun, it took us 3 hours to get half way up and down!!! I know we had alot of kids with us, but it was disappointing to get half way up and then have to turn around because it started to rain. Last September, Beth and I, Chris, Rebekah, and Chris's friend scaled that same mountain in under 1 hour! Oh well, it was fun anyways!

All of the hikers, excluding Mom, at the entrance sign.

Noelle, Hannah, and Ben turn and look long enough for me to snap a picture.

Benji poses on top of some large rocks he climbed.

Kayla checks out the summit with a cool telescope they had out for hiker use.

We actually did have fun on the hike! I think it tired them all out too! On the way back down we took a trail which the kids enjoyed. It is more challenging than just walking down the gravel trail, but it kept them occupied!
