We celebrated by going to Seven Falls, a local tourist attraction that we've never been to. (Well, we both went in high school in the winter when the falls were frozen, which doesn't really count.) We watched the Native American dancers.
Then we took the 700 something stairs (I made that number up) to the falls - all while I carried the baby. I'm rather proud.
Once we were at the top, we took a short hike to Midnight Falls. It was so nice to get into the beautiful green forest and remember that not everything is burned.When Allie makes this face (below), she breathes heavily through her nose. Every time she heard Mike doing the breathing, she'd respond in kind with her favorite face. What a nut.
We ran into a few bears in the forest.
Then we saw a chipmunk who had found a couple of nuts.
We topped it all off with a picnic along the stream.
While Mike and Alexandra gazed wistfully into the horizon.
Love you, Mikey!
