Rifle Falls Camping Trip
Saturday we woke up, had an awesome breakfast of egg scramble, bacon, and hot cocoa. Then we took off for a hike up to Rifle Falls and to explore Rifle Caves. The falls were awesome and the caves were cool...literally. We had a great hike that ended with a nice stroll along the stream that had just tumbled over the caves. We had lunch in camp and tinkered around during Annabelle's nap. I made Brownies on my new cook-top oven which I LOVE!!! After Annie woke up we let her play in the grass for awhile, then we took another hike up past the falls, and bought some firewood. We then settled in for the evening, made dinner, hung out by the fire, got sleepy and eventually headed to bed. Sunday morning we packed up and headed out after another tasty breakfast. All in all it was an awesome, relaxing, fun first camping trip with Annie. She is a born camper and I'm sure we can look forward to many more trips together!
Here are a few pics of the trip.

Well, we had a nice week in California, even though the circumstances were not good. We helped out with Ed's funeral and provided support to Lynn, his wife. Micky, his daughter has grown a ton and is quite the live wire. She really enjoys cartoon network and the playstation! We all walked to Sweet Retreat to get ice cream one night and Micky decided to go in her pajamas (the ones with feet). It reminded me a lot of something I would do (or did do) when I was 13.
We also had a camping trip while I was a non-blogger. I will post lots of pictures to catch up!
All in all things are well, the house still hasn't sold. We broke the contract with our realtor and will be searching for a new realtor next week. Hopefully some new blood will be what we need to sell the house!
