Our 4th of July

We had a very quiet 4th of July this year as it was on Sunday. But Paul had Monday off and we decided to go hiking with the kids up at Eklutna Lake. This is an area Paul is considering going hunting in later this year. It was a beautiful day, but the wind was blowing like crazy. Everybody had to have their walking sticks and I'll have to take a picture of Daniel with his as he found one that looks like Grandpa Lyman's cane and he is VERY protective of it. As a matter of fact the next week he took it with him as we "hiked" to the park and another boy about 10 tried to take it from him but Daniel used it to hit him you know where and retained his "cane". We hiked about 1 1/2 miles around the lake. It was an easy hike as it was level walking and the trail was wide enough for 2- 4 wheelers to pass each other as they frequently did. It was so beautiful. I just love getting out in the mountains and enjoying the views around here. It is just stunning.
