Hanging Out

We had a little getaway, which means I'm a little behind on blogging. But never fear, I now have some more great material to work with. While I'm sorting out photos and cropping and enhancing, here are a few photos from last week, when my brother and his friend came to visit. We went on an adventure walk, which this time included hanging from a pear tree. The pears were tiny and really bitter. We kept trying to find one that tasted good, but with no luck.

 Of course if Desert Boy did it, Desert Girl had to, also. She's strong enough to hold on for ten seconds. A few times.

 I can't even remember why Desert Girl had the sad face. She's finally hit the terrible two's and is quick to cry if she doesn't get what she wants. Lately she wants her hair up in little buns. I like it, it's easy, so in this case she gets what she wants. Not so much on other things, like eating candy all day.

 The adventure walk also involved balancing on an unsturdy log over the creek. Never mind that Desert Boy wore irrigating boots expressly for the purpose of walking through the creek. Balancing and the danger of falling in is much more exciting.

 And then sure enough, he fell in. And was quite upset about it.

Time for uncle's turn across. He was successful.

Then it was time for the short hike back home with the beautiful fall leaves. We have really enjoying the weather. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who are struggling with the weather and its consequences.
