    We got hit with some amazing, cool, rainy, weather last week!

    trees

    I took the boys to Ray Harral Nature Park one day when it was raining with no lighting.

    Hiking in the rain is one of my favorites things to do.

    In case you are wondering how I took pictures in the pouring rain, I used a modified ziplock bag.

    Like this one on Instructables.

    I am thinking I might need to move to Oregon or Washington.

    Do you live where it rains a lot?

    What is your favorite thing to do in the rain?

    Father’s Day

    before

    For Father’s Day this year my husband wanted to do the Lipbuster Challenge at Turkey Mt. again.

    He did it last year as well.

    This year though my oldest wanted to do it with him.

    start

    up

    They had to go up and down this hill at Turkey Mt. as many times as they could in 1hr.

    awesome

    finish

    They both did 7 laps!

    My son was worried he was not going to make it in time though so he left Nick behind and ran really fast to the finish!

    happy

    He was so excited to get the medal and eat…

    He really likes to eat the “junk food”(his words) after a race.

    done

    They did awesome!

    The picture on the right is how Nick really felt…

    partner

    My youngest stuck with me while I took pictures.

    He was really helpful in pointing out things like a scorpion that had just gone under the bark at my feet…

    I tried to stay in that spot longer but all I could think of was a scorpion crawling up my leg so we moved.

    He was disappointed I did not get a picture of it.

    I like that this race is early enough we can still make it to church!

    I decided to change instead of showing up in muddy jeans though…

     

     

    Day 3~Mount Magazine State Park, Paris, AR

    Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

    On the last day of our stay in Arkansas we packed up and headed to Mount Magazine State Park on the way home.

    It was very foggy and raining.

    baby

    We decided to go ahead and stop at the visitors center though and see if we wanted to do a hike while it was not thundering.

    mist

    I love the woods like this.

    So beautiful.

    Usually it is easier to see animals also.

    We decided on doing the Signal Hill hike since it was short and went to the highest point in Arkansas.

    iphone

    I only took pictures of the hike with my phone since my camera was tucked away.

    The top three are from my phone.

    It was raining pretty good at the start but then started pouring!

    It was nice to at least have a bug free hike.

    We all like hiking in the rain.

    plague

    Nick said they needed a picture with the plaque that says it is the highest point.

    I did not do this.

    There was only one other person on the trail but he took a picture for us!

    I did take my camera out for these shots at the top.

    It got a little wet but dried out just fine.

    I would like to visit this place again when we can see more of the views.

    We had a great trip though and I am so glad we went!
