 We joined our hiking group up to Powerline Pass.  The fall colors were so pretty.  We were pretty much above the fog most of the time, but at the end it started to roll in and we got covered in mist.
 We did see this bear print in the mud.  They were pretty fresh and seemed to follow our same trail.  I took out my bear spray and thankfully the kiddos were pretty loud.

It is just so pretty up there!

 Just some pictures from the last few days.  Nothing new today, sorry!  The boys after playing at the playground in the rain.  Silly boys.
 Duke playing with the water game Lu gave him.  He didn't play with it for a while and now does all of the time.
Duke crossing the bars at the playground.  He got to the third one the first try.  Muscles!

I had a busy day and so this is an oldie, but goodie of the boys.  We had the Tuesday Night Races and that always is fun, but it means a late night!  They ran up and down huge hills - so fast!  Only a few slips!

Hopefully, you can see a video of Duke swinging from yesterday.  We zipped out there again tonight after dinner - it was pouring rain, but you couldn't tell under the tree!

 Bop relaxing with the pup.  Sal is on the mend and is nearly back to her old self. 
 We had some serious rain and the boys did some puddle fishing.

 We used the climbing rope to make a rope swing.  Bop took apart something so we had a circle of wood and he put a huge hook in it - voila!  The boys had so much fun!
 Kincaid climbed this a few times and then said that we should do it as a family so I was forced to make the climb too.
The boys posing for a picture!  I asked them to pose and love the one that Kincaid chose.

I know it is graffiti, but I really love how pretty it is!

Walking along the beach searching for sea glass.  The boys love doing this for some reason.

 We did some geocaching today as it finally stopped raining.  Apparently, the rain will come back tomorrow though and bring with it some windy conditions.  So, we had to take advantage of the sunshine that hit about 65 I think. 

We went to Campbell Creek Science Center and searched for 3 caches and found 2.  Not too bad for me I must say.  Duke walked the entire time, carrying his own backpack with snacks.  He loves to have his own pack with his own provisions. 

I loved this cache.  Someone attached this super strong clip to a tupperware container.  It was clipped to a little branch in a tree!  So clever.

I volutneered at the Science Center this morning and caught a glimpse of this wonderful little display.  I thought the boys would love it, but apparently the Fish and Wildlife guy made it himself.  Drat.
 We came and home and found this HUGE spider.  Kincaid didn't like it and almost refused to go in front the door.  Any clue on if that big bulge on his/her backside is eggs or just a large posterior?
And, here is a picture of some hill sliding after last night's Tuesday Race. I think this might be one of the only reasons they do the races.  I think Duke is behind that standing boy.  They went up with Duke holding onto Kin's coattails.  As much as they fight, they do cling to each other in a crowd.
