Up on the mountain.

The kids are going crazy being outside on vacation.  They can't believe how cool it is and how relaxing a little soak in the hot tub is right before bed.

They're not sure they'll ever be able to sleep again without one.

I'm willing to bet they can.

We ventured to the top of the mountain this afternoon where I realized two things...

1.  My deathly-afraidment of heights is exacerbated when my children are involved.  Watching them on the ski lift in front of me, swinging in the breeze, with nothing between them and the wildflower be-speckeled ground but a metal bar gave me the willies.

2. My sunscreen is for lightweights who live at sea level.


All that being said, we had a great hike and made it to the peak where we almost lost Sadie to a terrible fall straight off the side of the mountain.

I was so horrified that she was going to fall to her death, I stopped to capture it forever on film.

I know, we're dorks.  But, it's little things like these that keep children entertained while their parents are desperately trying to catch their breath.

Sadie is an American national treasure.

So funny! I have to admit, though, I have the same exact fear of heights (especially with my kids) that you have, so that picture of Sadie literally made my palms sweat... pathetic I know :)

I turn into a complete Nervous Nellie when edges and ledges and heights are involved. I panic and start barking orders like a drill sergeant. It's awful.

Loving your summer vacation posts!
