I'll be there for you.... to binge watch while recovering from Strep Throat.
So I'll just punt and post a throwback Thursday. See the other night we were reading a book about Volcanoes (boys at the library. yeah). And I told the kids that their dad and I hiked up a volcano once. And they were SHOCKED. So I got out the photo album from our trip to Lassen Volcanic. They were SO SO into it! To the point where the last couple of nights instead of books at bedtime they have requested "pictures from when you were in your 20's" Sure. Why not.
|Us in Lassen in 2002. SO YOUNG!|
|And 22 is crazy young.|
|Mmmmm mountains. View of the Vernal and Nevada falls from Glacier point.|
|Seriously, 22 year old Matt, be careful. We have awesome things ahead.|
|One of my favorite pictures of my husband to this day.|
Most of these pictures are from the Mist trail hike. It goes up past Vernal falls, past Nevada falls, to the base of Half Dome.
Then we hiked the panorama trail back down to the valley.
|Nevada falls with half dome in the background. Names I still remember 12 years later.|
"Fought it." - Matt
"REALLY????" - the kids who still don't quite get sarcasm. Surprising being raised by us.
Hopefully some day we'll go back the rest of our party of 5 in tow. Until then it's fun to be able to show the kids our past adventures.
