Outdoorsy Stuff

This weekend we thought we would spend a little quality time outside. We're totally loving the cooler nights and the smell of fall in the air (okay really we're mostly just loving fall television- face it, summer shows are crap!) So, Saturday night we headed up to Bridal Veil Falls for a picnic with Sam and Tiffany. Our friendship with the Tryons started out that way, so we figured it couldn't hurt if we want this friendship to be lasting as well. It was tons of fun and the only complaint we had were the wasps that fell in love with our KFC. My Camera was freaking out so I didn't get many photos. Jack tested out the water under the falls and claimed it was cold. Or so he says.... Sam wanted this wicked cool picture of him walking on water (don't tell him you can see the rock he's standing on). It was fun though. Good times. THEN Sunday after church for some reason we thought it would be fun to go up to the Timpanogas Caves. We won't mention whose idea it was (Tiffany). Holy crapper! I've learned to totally trust Tiffany when she says it's a 45 degree angle the ENTIRE way and that we hike to the very tip. Wow. I'm not going to lie, I totally need to get in shape again because it was brutal. Luckily we had Jack and Sam with us and they either pushed or pulled us up a good portion of the hike. We did make it though. And we were SO glad we did. It was so cool and you have no idea how proud we were that we made it to the top. It's an incredibly hard hike so don't judge. We seriously had so much fun though. We met an older couple from British Columbia and the Canadian blood made instant friends out of the group. They shared their water and helped us along. They were so adorable. Also, the caves were amazing. I don't know what I was expecting but they were really cool. We took lots of pics and even signed the guest book. So there is proof to everyone that we actually did it. You just have to hike to the top to see. We're exhausted but Tiffany has proven herself worthy of giving ideas. Thanks for a super fun afternoon guys!

Nice. I hope the replacement interviews are going well. I think it is a little cold to try and replicate our friendship event by event.

I know that the hike is crazy hard, we did it last year. We had 3 adults and 7 kids starting at age 2 up to 15. Needless to say the 3 adults and two 2 year olds were the last ones to the top. I was told never to tell any visitors/company about the Caves again…lol … Can you believe it, I have a friend that does it two mornings a week in the summer. Talk about CRAZY!!!

I'll testify too that the water at BVF is COLD, it just about froze my toezzies off. I must say that I'm a little envious that you have so much cool stuff right out your back door to go and do, and not to mention shopping, my sister and I both swear that if we lived in the city our homes would be lots cuter! yea I'm sure that would help!
