|Hiking boots are tough to tie when you don't bend in the middle anymore!|
|A much needed rest.|
Maya lead the way, marveling at the river, at the geological marvel of the potholes (an uninspiring name for some amazingly carved rocks), and took every unexpected moment of the day with grace and sweetness beyond her six years.
What, mom isn't up to a 1.5 mile hike back to the campsite? Let's eat at this convenient Taylor's Falls malt shop! What, mom isn't exactly overjoyed to sleep in a tent crammed in with a bunch of other campers when she'll need to, um, answer natures call every hour or so? No problem, let's set up the tent in the back yard!
|In between our two hikes, we rested. Maya spent her time writing a book about how the Cat in the Hat got started.|
|Back at home we fulfilled the wish for S'mores.|
|And Elle fed Snowflake some chips.|
|She shared some with dad too.|
|Mom brought presents out to the tent this morning.|
|Maya donned her fancy new sunhat and set about reading her new Spiderman Comic book. The girl is infatuated with Spiderman!|
