Weekend Adventure


This weekend the weather was BEAUTIFUL and B Daddy and I decided to take advantage of the warmth and all the rain we've had recently and hike to one of our favorite waterfalls in the area, Dukes Creek Falls.




The kids did a great job of hiking in. It was about a mile (mostly downhill) to the falls, and there were great views of the creek running below us the whole time. Once we got down to the falls,  the only word that came to mind was magnificent. They were fuller than we've ever seen them; we were all giddy at the sight.

We did this same hike almost exactly three years ago...what a difference huh? I can't decide who has changed more - B Daddy or the Squirt.

We spent a good twenty minutes watching the water and standing in the spray before turning around to hoof it back up to the top.


The trip back up was slower and um...let's just describe it as "less enthusiastic" than the hike in.  By the end of our trek, B Daddy had Blue Eyes on his back and Squirt on his shoulders while I carried Sweet B for every. single. uphill. step.

We decided to reward ourselves with a little DQ on the ride home and finished the day by carrying 3 sleeping kiddos straight to bed. Ice cream can be dinner every once in a while right?!
