Sunday Drive to the Lake

Beautiful "Silver Lake"

Dead tired

(Josh layed down, then they all joined :)

We had a delightful time at the lake... after a nice Sunday stroll around Silver Lake, we found a new trail and took the unexpected treacherous mile hike up the mountain to a lake (reservoir) we've never seen- Twin Lake Reservoir. It was stunning and worth hiking the steep terrain, except flip flops don't make great hiking shoes (I didn't plan this :). The girls were troopers and enjoyed it all, of course they got to ride- Dad & Nick carried them on their shoulders most the way up the mountain and half way down. Nick was such a great help and such an awesome brother, they sure enjoy having sisters!

Love these pleasant, peaceful Sundays

Spotted this moose on the way back, we also saw a Mink & the girls loved the Chipmunk eating a nut

Paul took most of these pics

Your family always seems to enjoy just being with one another. I love the fotos of the kids lying on the walking path! So adorably cute.

I love Silver Lake, I think I'll definately be making a trip there once we are back in a few weeks! Paul is a great photographer.. It would be really nice to make the background black and white and have the squirrel in color...
