Thursday's adventures....

I finally got to go see Moss Glen Falls! The last time we were here in the summer Aidan hurt his knee so walking was out. It was just a little hike - not even a mile! The part to get up to this view however was extremely steep! I was very nervous of this shot as that was a long drop less than 2 feet in back of them down the falls!

The view without them standing there!

At the bottom of the falls playing in the stream. Aunt Jo and Grammy are on each side.

A shot of the falls from the bottom - I didn't feel like climbing over the rocks to get a better picture from the bottom.

Elmore Mountain Road - taken from the back seat of the car while moving.

Despite Emily resting on my shoulder during that ride. The falls tuckered her out!
We were looking for the Geocache at the falls but were unable to find it. No GPS was working there and I didn't find the helpful hint until we got back to the camp. I did know the trick to finding the Geocache at The Beauty Spot of Vermont! My sister was intrigued and since I knew where this one was.... we had to stop on the way home and find it! Our first Geocache find.

Found our first Geocache!

The kids had so much fun with that.... they hit the recycle bin at camp and found two clear plastic boxes, added paper and a pencil and had Aunt Jo hide them for them to find with a hint! That kept them busy for over an hour hiding them and finding them. =)
Dinner was at The House of Pizza in Morrisville and then we had to pick up milk and dessert and head back to camp for jammie snacks and then bed for the kids. They are sleeping like rocks with all this fresh air they are getting. I was just excited to wear jeans and a sweat shirt yesterday.. something I can't do very often down in Florida! All that hand work I prepped..... it is just so relaxing sitting and enjoying the view I have not done more than add about 10 green squares to the green trip block. That's it! I should get some hand stitching in today at the wedding rehearsal this afternoon. Until then.... we'll enjoy lunch at Al's French Fry's with some friends of mine and then we have an afternoon to use up before the 5PM rehearsal. I think I'll take the kids to Echo for the afternoon and walk down by Lake Champlain.

Moss Glen Falls looks gorgeous! Isn't geocaching wonderful? So glad you are having a great time. The stitching will get done when there is no family or beautiful view. Enjoy! ~Jeanne

Quite a change of scenery. The falls are beautiful! So glad that the kids are enjoying the trip. Sounds like a great opportunity to catch up and spend time with family.

Uh-oh! Be careful of that Geocaching bug! Being bitten could lead to lots of fun!,
