We are still on a mission of crossing as many things off of our summer fun list as possible, so today we tackled two! Since the weather is a bit cooler than normal, I recruited Mary Michael and her kids to join us for a hike up Ruffner Mountain. It was a cloudy day, so we thought it would be a pretty pleasant experience.

Fortunately the walk back to the nature center was primarily downhill, so it was much easier for everyone. In fact, when we got real close, all of the kids really picked up their pace. When we got to the bottom, we used the restroom, washed our hands and headed on our next adventure....a picnic at The Vulcan!

We finally came home early afternoon, showered and then the kids took a long nap. I guess all of the complaints about their legs hurting were valid because they were out hard! I had to wake each of them up after several hours.
