A Hike and A Hunt

*Gratuitous Belly Shot* The baby even got in on all the vacation fun and went on it's first hike. Leave it to the husband to try to capture me on film, despite my objections. I think it was making him a little nervous to have me, climbing up and over the rocks, but i did ok...only needed a little help, and he was there with it ever step of the way.


The kids had so much fun, Grampy came along and we explored the trail. Mitch was tracking animal tracks, ie sneaker marks, but we did not tell him what it really was. At the top the view is gorgeous, looking out over the water, islands, several harbors, lighthouse and mountains. There was an artist there capturing the view too. I watched him paint for a little while...he did not seem to mind!


This week we also spent some time at a family favorite spot called Jasper Beach. We have gone for many years. The rocks are beautiful and we bring home more than we should every time. My aunt mentioned that we are a family of Hunters and Gatherers....and she is not kidding. We all have a love for rocks and sticks. They are all over my house.


These are my favorite shots from Jasper...Avery was enjoying the water but it was cold cold cold!! Leaping out of the way was so cute.


Mitch had the most fun just throwing the rocks or filling his bucket and then dumping it!




Maine we will miss you, until next time!!!

Sigh... I want to go back. Love the pics of Avery jumping and the wide shot of everyone at Jasper beach and Aunt Deb carrying the kelp.

I'm thinking of doing a post all about Aunt Deb.

Cute! And what a great baby bump.

My husband documented my big wide butt last year when I was pregnant and we went on a hike in Arctic Valley. It was nice of yours to get the baby side of you! :)
