It's a few hours of a drive, but not a bad one by any means and frankly, after a couple of weeks without AC, I was excited for some cooler mountain air.
We spent almost the whole day on Friday outdoors. We went caving - a walking cave tour - my pregnant tummy doesn't quite allow me to do much climbing and/or squeezing into tight spaces. Then we went on a short little hike to visit these beautiful falls. I think I could have sat out here for hours. The water was so peaceful and just wonderful to be near. There are actually several different views you could hike to, but we let the fam hike ahead after just one to avoid over exertion. No complaints though.
Saturday, we went to a local parade and had a pretty traditional 4th celebration complete with the parade, catching and eating a lot of candy and walking around the park watching fun festival games. We got to watch the sack races, wheel barrow races, and three legged races. We didn't participate, but we sure loved the entertainment.
Afterwards, we spent lots of time walking around the park. It was truly a beautiful day and an absolute blast of a weekend.
30 weeks, still hiking strong. :)
