We're baaaccckkk! We had a wonderfully relaxing, lazy vacay in PA's "Grand Canyon". The weather was stellar. We hiked, we biked, we swam, we ate. We played cards, we read. We went to church, we got ice cream, we had friends and family come for a visit. We had a ball. Here are just a few highlights from the week - a conglomeration of all of our photos/cameras:

Eva is getting a close-up view of the zillions of teeny-tiny frogs she caught.

"The kids" on the bridge in Blackwell - Dustin and Emily, Matthew and Martha (and Taco).

Martha got this amazing shot of a young bald eagle that we were able to get quite close to on our bike ride up into the canyon. There were two young ones. We didn't see the grown-ups that day...

This is what we woke up to every morning - just 20 feet in front of our cabin. Look how crystal clear that water is! What a great swimming hole - we were in it every day!

A view of Pine Creek looking upstream from the bridge in Blackwell. We made the short walk up to the bridge every night - and were rewarded with a glimpse of the mature bald eagle the last night. No bears, though...

Here we are after a hard day of swimming and playing enjoying one of many great meals on the cabin porch...

Matthew is standing on "Barbour's Rock" along the West Rim Trail in the PA Grand Canyon. You can see Pine Creek and the bike path below... What a beautiful hike.

So, now it's back to our regular routine of summer busy-ness and fun! Today Chris is golfing, Matthew and Martha went to open a bank account and get groceries for homemade pizza and I'm heading right into my scrap room for the rest of the day...until I get to eat some of that yummy pizza!
