Hiking in Alabama

 The week before school started, we packed Oma, Max and our family up into the car and drove to Huntsville, Alabama to spend some time with the Thompsons. The kids were a little sad because the Thompson kids had to go back to school the Wednesday we were there. But me made the best of it. On Tuesday, Rich; Terry and I packed ALL the kids up (9 of them) and we went on a hike. We all had a lot of fun. I have to say, I was very proud of Josiah who walked the entire hike. But then, he was Christopher's hiking buddy so he had to keep up:)

The ENTIRE Gang.

 After about 30 minutes of going down the mountain, we found a little stream that the kids just LOVED playing in. Especially the girls-Taylor, Noelle, and Riley. They had so much fun getting dirty:)

 Josiah also had a blast getting wet.

 They were DIRTY by the time we got to the car!!
We all had so much fun this week. I think Riley especially likes being with the Thompson's because she has 2 other girls to play with. She gets to play with girly toys and gets to play girly games:) It is great to see they are so close even though we live so far away.
