My long lost friend has returned

My friend Aloe returned on Saturday!! Yes, I got my first sunburn of the year. This is the start of a great year of color (I hope).
It was in the 70s and perfect that day so we decided to head to the beach to catch some rays. I did not feel like joining everyone else on the beach, so we thought it would be fun to try to find our secluded beach with the waterfall. That way we could have an enjoyable afternoon without all of the crowds. Unfortunately we were not able to find that exact location, but decided to make the best of what we found. It turned out to be a beautiful day, even though I had to lay out on rocks instead of a sandy beach.
No adventure is complete for us without having to climb down the side of a cliff :)

These are the rocks we hiked around on and I eventually tried laying out on. It wasn't the most comfortable, but the scenery made it worth it.

Here is Ethan in a cave we found. He really enjoys posing for pictures.

Here is James, my other cutie, who doesn't like posing for pictures.

We found another cave that was filled with water. As you can see here, this is the opening of it where the water goes in.

This is what it looked like on the inside of the cave. It was so cold in there, we could see our breath.
One of Ethan's favorite things to do is snap. He is aaalways snapping. We call him 'snaps'. I think he always has a song in his head because he dances a lot, too, without any music. He is very intently watching James climb down into the cave.

I debated whether or not to put any pictures of me since I'm in my swimsuit and that is so unflattering. But I thought it would be a good idea to document how white I was then, before the sun and Aloe returned.
Here I am quicly hopping from rock to rock with my feet hurting trying to get to the cave.
I made it, but please cover your eyes if my whiteness is blinding you.

  1. You have what we like to call the "Alaskan Tan"! Welcome to the rest of us in the Great White North! The nice thing is though - you will definitely be leaving us soon... :) Now we know what to send you for your birthday! Miss you guys. LOVE the pictures! You have inspired me. As soon as the weather turns we will try to hit the outdoors a little more... Give Ethan a hug!
