North Georgia Mountains
We headed to the mountains to escape the heat...
and have some adventures, too
Jonah, Hannah, Lucy in a close-up
Jonah, Hanna, Lucy with swinging bridge perspective
This is the longest swinging bridge east of the Mississippi
Walking it was an adventure!
Jessica and children at one end of the bridge
Madison was in California at girl's camp adventure
Amanda and children with the other end in sight
The bridge was a 'moving' adventure as you walked across
Adventure for Caleb, Lucy, and Jonah
Scary for the mom's watching them....and grand-mom
Jonah and Hannah crossing the creek....
.....on a log! Balancing adventure!
Lucy and Caleb were the leaders
Amanda and Annabel found their own adventure
Back on safe ground with a steady walking stick
Hannah takes a rest on the hike to Amicalola Falls
Do you remember having a family adventure there in the 90's!
Even mom's carrying little ones need a breather
It was a 1000 step climb to the top! Now that's adventure!
Caleb helped carry the little ones, too
Caleb getting a good look at the falls
Lucy being her cute, photogenic self
Jonah being Tarzan
Caleb used his scout skills to build a very good campfire for smores
And at the end of the day, it was time for the hot tub -
and what did we see come lumbering by?
A black bear! Adventure of adventures!
He lumbered past the hot tub, down to the campfire, and disappeared into the woods
At the end of our mountain adventure, the suburban was in dire need of cleaning
Lucy, Jonah, Hannah, Caleb made the point on the windows
Where were Sofia and Lilian during all of these adventures?
They were having their own adventure out West with their family.
The week after they got back, they came to Hickory Hill for some Ranger Adventure!
Then these women went West, too......for BYU Education Week!
Rachel, Mom, Claire, Jenn
A tradition in the making for the women in the family - mark your calendars for 2013!
These three cute girls are BYU fans, too!
Brian took his girls to Fish Lake so Rachel could go to Ed Week
Tayler, Kate, Lauren (Tessa even went fishing!)
Before flying back to Georgia, Claire and Mom went to the Provo temple
Then we stopped by say 'good-bye' to our beautiful Julie and her sweet baby Ezra
Did I say this little guy was sweet? Living proof!
....and that's it folks!
