Hiking Caledon

"That's My Backpack!" That's what Max kept saying when we tried to give him a break from the backpack. It had Mommy's camera, two juice boxes, and some fruit snacks in it. He carried most of the mile we hiked.

A filthy Max = lots of fun. But some of those marks on his legs are from a pen he found at the house this morning. We don't know where he has them stashed.

Morgan's new goal in life is be an artist just like Mommy. And he wants to live in his own house. Mommy's reaction when she heard that last bit? YES!

There was a playground at the Caledon Natural Site. The boys played hard until the lunch and again before the hike. We're surprised they didn't collapse before we got to the car.

Everyone had to have their own walking sticks. After halfway there Mommy made everyone (even Daddy) put their sticks by the side of the trail for other weary hikers to find.

Near the halfway point we ran into this fellow. At the time we didn't know if he was harmless or venomness so we gave him a wide berth. After some internet research we found out he was a Northern Black Racer. This snake is a scaredycat and slithers away very quickly when approached. Mommy took this picture at a comfortable distance as he was moving away from us.

Lunch was hotdogs with S'Mores for dessert. Morgan and Max weren't that impressed with the toasted marshmallows. Max took one bite and decided they weren't for him.

This merry-go-round was the hit of the day. Both boys took turns spinning the other. Then Morgan figured out how to spin it then jump on.
Several of these pictures were taken by Mommy taking a ride on the merry-go-round.
