Hiking Beacon Rock on Spring Break

We went to Beacon Rock on Spring Break. It took a long time (it felt like) to get there....but it was worth it. This is us starting our walk.
Jared with his hood over his face. He seemed to like going!!! He did like it for the most part but he got tired when we were getting closer to the top.
Blayne, Chauntel, and Zachary loved going ahead! Blayne and Zachary did it the most!!!
Mom and Camille was behind Garret and I. At some point she took this picture of us. Garret was so good for me. He was sweet, too.
This is the pretty gorge.
Finally we got to the top! Dad took this picture of us.
This lady asked to take a picture of all of us. Mom said yes. This is how it turned out.
This is at the bottom. Dad and Mom let us run when we got closer to the bottom and it was safer to run. We beat them:)
Mom and Dad!
After that, we went to the park across the road. Dad was doing this.
Dad asked who else could do it. I could!!!
The little kids wanted to be on the tire swing the whole time we were there. They liked it a lot!
Jared on the slide.

I had a lot of fun doing both things. I think it was worth the drive. We ended the day by eating out at Pizza Hut. Us kids had our last "Book-it" free pizza coupons to use. Yummy! ~Alexa

Garage Sale Time!

"One man's (woman's) junk is another man's treasure".......

Hope so:) We just set up our annual garage sale a couple days ago. This year I'm having it with Jenny and Clara at Jenny's house. Today we made 30 pasty and 10 pies to try to sell also at the sale. Alexa finished her hats that she has been knitting since Christmas time; added the buttons and the pretty flowers that she bought from her friend, who made them. And Chauntel made her candy and suckers again as well. Now we'll see what the weather's like and if many people drag themselves out if the day looks like today did!!! Anyways, I love to go to garage sales myself and love to have them too! Half the fun is just hanging out with friends all day:) Love ya, Mona
