A Hiking We Will Go

We took the kids hiking around Eagle Mountain Lake. The trail is really nice and we saw five armadillos and a scorpion. We went 4.5 miles, not entirely by choice, because we made a wrong turn. Carter made it three and then Sam and I carried him. Gavin and Renée loved hiking and Gavin especially loved checking out all the bugs. It was a fun way to spend the evening.
Armadillo
Labor Day weekend brought a lot of boats to the water.  Here are the kids posing in front of them.
Gavin spotted the scorpion.
Here is a closer view of the scorpion.
