I have a good friend who has blessed us with many hand-me-downs. This past week we received several boxes and some other goodies, including some outrageously beautiful dress up princess dresses. I mean, these are Disney store dresses, prom dress quality. My little princesses had a very fancy tea party with their friend Leyna.
Eden is just so lovely, growing up so fast.
Making cookies for Granny for her birthday!
4th of July grilled steak and chicken fahitas with roasted corn!
Doing fireworks from Canaan!
Kiki and Laz watched from the back of Canaan's truck, but Kiki really didn't like the loud noises and would hide behind Hannah each time something went off.
But she was brave enough to hold a sparkler!
Helping Laz hold a sparkler without poking himself (or anyone else) in the eye.
Happy little Americans running in the cul-de-sac.
And now... off to Hanging Rock. We hike Hanging Rock at least once a year, but we may have to do this at least once more this summer. It's such a fun place.
First off on the trail, Canaan caught a crayfish:
And Windsor was not impressed.
Children whittling with their pocket knives.
Such a beautiful place.
Laz, Candice, and Isaac.
Some friends along with us on this trip.
Even Laz made it to the top. This was Laz's first hike. This was a little tricky for us, but in the Baker family, nobody gets left behind. We were able to stroll him up for the first part, but when the trail got rougher, we all took turns toting him and handing him up and down the rocks. Not sure how we'll manage when he gets heavier, but we'll figure it out.
Sweet sisters. (Eden isn't that much shorter; it's how they're standing.)
Laz hiking down to the water fall. Daddy got quite the workout.
Enjoying the falls, so refreshing!
Great looking group!
Okay Eden, now you're scaring me....
Don't be afraid Kiki; I've got you!
And a fun (but exhausting!) time was had by all!!!
If you've never been to Hanging Rock, you need to go some day!
