Wild Week

As I write this, I am deeply saddened by the reality that Kai's spring break is over:-( We had so many great times together during his break that it's hard to come to terms with the fact that Kai will join the rest of the working class and be gone from 8 to 5 everyday. That's okay though. After a few counseling sessions with our family psychologist, I'm sure Kasen and I will be able to manage until the next break.
Okay, so that's a little dramatic, but it's always hard to watch a vacation end. We do have lots of fun times to think about until the next vacation though. Here are a few things we'll remember...
Like father, like son
He's such a stud!
Family self portrait at the WA Park
In between outfits. I think he looks like a jungle boy;-) We had a great time playing with all the effects on our camera. This picture pulled all the green out.
This one pulled the orange out. If only I could look this tan all the time!
Lunch at the WA Park. They had the best fries and ostrich burgers we've had in a long time!--Just kidding--we stuck with the veggie patties and fries which were scrumptious!
Hiking "our hills" in Loma Linda. They are so green this time of year. That is both a good and bad thing. It's good because it's beautiful. It's bad because it means that it's spring which brings...
Yes, that's a snake! I'm far away from it which is why is looks small. It was really about 4-5 feet long. FYI--I HATE snakes!
We think it was a rattlesnake, but we didn't try to get close enough to see it's tail. It moved pretty fast and with Kasen we definitely kept our distance. Thankfully our camera can zoom in pretty good--thus the close up shot.
This was the 2nd snake we saw on the trail. It was not a rattlesnake, but it was a snake still--ewww! Needless to say, we walked much more cautiously the rest of the day.

More fun effects with the camera. This is the 2nd of 3 crosses on the hills we hike. They're a beautiful reminder of the hope we have.
