Crater Lake and Other Things

Ana went on Trek!!!  The most I heard from her afterwards was "It was good," and "yeah, it was hard."  That was literally it.  Maybe if she hadn't have been mad at me at the time....kind of my fault, I was in a grouchy mood and jumped on her about a few things right after she got home.  I blame the heat and nausea, but yeah, I was being really a grouch.

The kids helped me pick Nanking Cherries from our bushes and I made a couple of jars of syrup. It's delicious.

Ana was working again, but we headed out with the younger kids and went to Crater Lake, about an hour and a half from our house.  It was a lovely hike, flat pretty much for the first mile, and then the last 3/4 mile, it's a 500 foot drop to the lake.  Nobody was there though, so it was really fun.  I half wanted to jump in and go skinny dipping, if it had been a hotter day, I probably would have.  Hee. Hee. But it actually wasn't that hot, which was nice for hiking.

The kids loved it and ask to go back all the time. Maybe once I'm not pregnant next summer.... As it was Lando hiked the whole way there, but on the way back up I carried Jubal and Leo carried Lando and I thought I was going to die.  Leo had to carry Jubal and Lando for a little bit at the end too.

It was so beautiful!!  And Isabel and Elena, those two can get out and walk.  They were always in the lead.  By the end Sebas and I were slowly making our way.

Anyway, we had a great time.  But it was getting hotter and hotter in our house since we don't have air conditioning, and I was getting meaner and meaner and more and more nauseous, so I decided to abandon my husband and Ana to the heat and went to visit Lindsay (visiting from Miami) at my mom's house and bask in the air conditioning and delicious food that I wouldn't have to cook.  So that's where I am now.
