Fall Hiking Trip...

This fall, Zack, Zayde and I went on a hiking trip with Zack's family. We saw much of God's beautiful creation. The weather was perfect and the golden leaves were stunning!

The Hammons Family
(Holly, Diana, Ron)



The Hickman Family
(Amy, Zayde, Zack)



Can you find Holly on this bluff?



Over-looking a huge bluff... Beautiful!



Holly found a neat crevice to hide in!

Zayde, Zack and Memaw



Zack did an awesome job as our tour guide!





Memaw and Zayde



Zayde and Aunt Holly



...always being just like Daddy!



Holly and me having fun!



Ron enjoys the view...



So does Zack and Zayde.



Daddy does a little rock hopping...



while Zayde plays in the water...





Our blessed family.



We found this beautiful bluff to rest under...





...being silly! (This was Zack's cigar. I thought I would be funny while holding it for him:)



Zayde thought he would walk for a while. Of course it didn't last long!



All of this sight seeing just wore him out!



Sweet Boy! (Notice Zayde wearing Mommy's shirt? He fell flat on his backside while playing in the water!)



We saw these magnificent Elk on the way home...



Aunt Holly showed us her new horse...



Zayde's first horse ride!! (He's not so sure...)

That looks like so much fun. Your family pictures are just great. I can't wait until it gets warm enough to go camping and hiking again. Zayde sleeping in the carrier looks like the girls in theirs while Kyle and I carry them. Hope you had a great Christmas and Happy New Year

What beautiful scenery! I've been wanting to get out and go for a hike, but it's always so cold on the weekends--maybe this spring. I can't believe how grown up Holly is! I think she was about 5 the last time I saw her!
