We skipped town the night on the 3rd of July
and celebrated our country's birthday
in the purple mountain majesties
with some sweet friends.
There was swimming,
piggy back rides,
and more piggy back rides
but this time across mud
as a dear little someone forgot her hiking boots back at home
so she was tough and did the hike to Cecret Lake in sandals.
Maybe the dismount didn't go quite like planned?
Thanks Zac for being a pal.
Cecret Lake had an iceberg in it!
Hunter, our dear salamander catcher,
to catch a salamander
just like you would do
but we got skunked.
We saw about 15 of the little guys
(or maybe the same 3 little guys 5 times - how would we know)
but didn't catch a one of them!
Still, it was a great 4th in a beautiful place.
