The reason Papa wasn't so excited about going out to the Titus Ranch (see previous post below) is because he wanted to go wood cutting. So we had to teach him a bit about the art of compromise, and we talked him into going to the forest the next day, which wasn't as nice weather-wise, but we did get two pickup loads full of wood, and even better, we had a fabulous time, rain and all! A little rain doesn't bother us "valley rats." After driving for what seemed like miles upon miles, we found my dad's "ideal" spot for cutting wood. He and my mom had been up there a couple of weeks ago and spent some time camping and, can you guess? Cutting wood! Although their wood shed is now near to bursting with wood, my dad thinks they need just "one more load of wood" to get them through the winter. In case you haven't guessed it, cutting wood is my dad's idea of a good time - he loves the forest and he loves being in it and working - he is so dang fit and healthy it is amazing!
Britt spent most of the day building this fort. He did a great job and had a ton of fun!
Hot dog roast! There's just no better way to cook a hot dog than over a fire, is there?
A bear took this picture for us... Ha-ha-ha! (My handy-dandy tripod!)
Note the camera in Brailey's hand. She spent most of her day taking pictures - some cool ones, too!
