Yesterday found us traipsing about in Hocking Hills State Park. We had a great day full of beautiful scenery, exploration, quality family time and panic attacks. The panic attacks were all mine, because apparently it is every little boy's (and Daddy's, I might add) desire to climb up the steepest rock formations, walk on the edge of every cliff and leave the trail to forge their own way to disaster.  But...we all had a wonderful time, and only ended up with one swollen ankle, one lacerated wrist, multiple scrapes, and filthy clothing. :-)

Malia, on the other hand, found herself a nice walking stick, which doubled as a gun for shooting all the wild, bad buffaloes we saw. She did find some nice buffaloes, too, along with a polka-dotted dinosaur. These she put in a pen so she could keep them, but later on she was having trouble keeping them in the pen. Oh, if only I had the troubles and trials of a four-year-old!

Other random pictures of our trip:

The pool at the hotel Sunday night was freezing, so the kids swam in the hot tub.

We really had a great time, and enjoyed the fact that Chris's parents were able to go with us. That made for lots of grandkid-spoiling, too, which the kids always enjoy!

  1. Wow - you got some neat photos! Also, nice buffalo AND a polka dot dinosaur? How could anyone possibly want more?
