With Bonnie and Bryce off at camp, Brian has been able to get some one on one time with mom and dad.  Tuesday, Brian and I went to the movies to see the new Batman movie, then on Wednesday Todd took Brian kayaking down the river.  Yesterday, Todd and Brian loaded up their backpacks and went hiking in the mountains. 
They hiked up to Lake Valhalla up in the Cascade Mountains. 

It was about a two and a half hour hike in so not too bad for Brian's first back pack trip. 
It was this time of year that we would take our boys from the boys ranch backpacking.  They would take ten days and hike up to 100 miles in the mountains.  Since moving back here, I have been looking forward to the day that we could go back packing as a family and experience the beauty of where we live.

 Brian caught the first fish of the trip, which is a good thing since that was their supper.

They hiked back out this morning and are now home.  I enjoyed the evening to myself but am thankful to see them safely returned.  Now it is time to pick up Bonnie and Bryce from camp.  Just a few more weeks and then we all have to get back in school mode.
