One mountain's worth of fun.

A couple of Saturdays ago, I took the boys on a hike up the back of Kennesaw Mountain. Between climbing the biggest boulders they'd ever seen, traversing dangerously high knocked-over trees, and building a "house" to live in next time they come back, they pretty much had the most fun afternoon I've seen them have in a long time. They scampered up every inch of that mountain, ooh-ing and aaah-ing all the way. RECOMMENDED.

Mommy: "I can't believe you got the tree down in the front yard!"
Beau: "I know! Those guys are really strong and helped me a lot!"
Luke: "...when you said 'those guys', I couldn't tell if you're talking about us...cause you didn't say our names."

Rice Not-So-Krispies.

Well, that was easy enough. Faith got her first taste of solid food this last weekend and fell right in line with the rest of the human population. What's next?

Daddy: "Cain brought God some of his plants that he grew, but God wasn't happy with them, and Able brought to God his best sheep to sacrifice."
Luke: "So...probably the lambs that could do tricks and stuff...and the ones that couldn't, he kept."

{after going up and finding Silas still awake an hour after he went down for a nap}
Mommy: "Silas, are you still up?"
Silas: "Yes!"
Luke: "Good job, Silas!"

"I can run really fast because I have a cheetah on my shirt. Daddy can run faster than a cheetah with a broken leg...with only one broken leg."

"Mommy, I'm trying not to tell you something because I don't want you to know...but I'm going to tell you. I have army men and an army truck in my bed...{pause} I think I'm going to bring the army truck down because it's too big."

I never had to say a word!

Silas: "Look out, Daddy! You're stepping in the lava!"
Daddy: "Oh no! What do I do?"
Silas: "It's okay, Daddy. The lava just turned into dinosaurs that don't eat you."
