More hiking pictures from our time in Banning. Ty is loving school. His favorite part is the Y. :)

I just love this park so much. The boys really enjoyed the hiking as did I. I love the Kettle River here. It's a bit of drive, but just so pretty.
Today, Ty went to Heather's house since he didn't have school today. Heather was nice enough to take him and Connor to the Feguson's Orchard and even bought him some apples to bring home with him. Deke has throughly enjoyed the apples and has had three so far this afternoon. Came home, made dinner and then Nikki came over to get some of our left over dirt from when we dug the patio up. Joel helped her load that up. I just watched them shovel. I would have helped but we didn't have a third shovel. I was really bummed. :) Ty got to watch some Packer football and now it is time for bed.

It is a tradition in my family to tell scary stories around the campfire. I decided that it was time to introduce the boys to story time around the campfire, but I kept them not scary. Or they thought they were going to be scared, but then the ending would be funny. Ty's favorite was "The Bloody Finger". You'll have to ask him to tell it to you sometime. He absolutely loved it and just got the biggest kick out of the ending.
The boys also enjoyed playing hide and seek when it got darker. Poor Deacon is not very good at hiding, but Ty is pretty good at it. Deke would never find him, if Ty wouldn't start laughing and give himself away. Deke was hilarious as the seeker. He'd look around a little bit and then say "I wonder where Twyer is?" Then he'd say "I guess I find him later" or "I look for him in the morning" This is what would set Ty to laughing and then Deke would find him.
Our last night there got pretty cold. It got down to 35 degrees that night. I did not pack for it being this cold. The boys had sweatshirts and pants and I had packed a pullover for Joel and myself, but I just was not expecting mid to high 30's. We ended up all piled on our queen sized air mattress in between the two sleeping bags. The boys were nice and toasty, but Joel and I were pretty chilly. I so wished I could have gotten a picture of the four of us crammed on that bed. It was pretty funny, although I don't think Joel, myself, or Ty got much sleep that night. It didn't seem to phase Deacon too much.
