the big falls - with a celebrity!

Yesterday we headed out to enjoy a God-given beauty that is so close to home. Multnomah Falls was calling our names and we wanted to hike to the top! We even took Tucker along and he did a great job once he had his harness on!
This shot of the kids and I was taken about half way up the hike to the top .

Once we got to the top Tucker had a nice bath in the mountain water and we enjoyed lunch on some great big rocks.
There were a few mysterious caves along the path that the kids fit perfectly into!
We made it safely back down for snow cones and ice cream cones at the lodge. Tucker was quite a celebrity at the falls. So many people were asking about him and wanting to pet him. At the end a group of 10 south Korean college students stopped to touch him and drool over him - they were so fascinated they were all posing for a picture with "Tuckar". It began to get a little ridiculous! It must be how the family of a famous person feels - a little invisible.
It was a great outing!

The Great Pacific Northwest! We have to all stay inside here, because it's too hot. Now in the spring and fall, when it's raining a lot there, we are all enjoying the weather here. So I guess it's a bit of give and take. Looks like y'all had a good time.

We stopped there briefly on Monday - to change a diaper. It got me thinking that I need to take the girls there.....but I don't think they're ready to hike to the top.

Too funny about your pup!
